The Quarterly Cookie Challenge

In America, a cookie is described as a thin, sweet, usually small cake. By definition, a cookie can be any of a variety of hand-held, flour-based sweet cakes, either crisp or soft.

Each country has its own word for "cookie." What Americans know as cookies are called biscuits in England and Australia, in Spain they're galletas, Germans call them keks or Plätzchen for Christmas cookies, and in Italy there are several names to identify various forms of cookies including amaretti and biscotti, and so on. The name cookie is derived from the Dutch word koekje, meaning "small or little cake." Biscuit comes from the Latin word bis coctum, which means, “twice baked.”

This challenge is based on some of my favorite cookies and some popular cookies everyone else may enjoy. Have fun! Maybe eat a cookie while reading the books for this challenge?


This challenge runs from December 15, 2013- March 15st, 2014. Please feel free to jump in at any time during the 3 months :)

There is no minimum page count, re-reads and audio books are allowed. You can choose any level to start with, and you can always move up or down levels at any time. You can add the bonus on to any level you complete.

Please re-post as you complete your book selections.

If you would like to add your star ratings to your completed books that would be great. It's always nice to see what everyone else enjoyed and get some new recs along the way :)
