Theresa  (tsorrels) These Book Reading Challenges are completely voluntary. Participation is NOT required if you aren't interested!

- Challenge # 3 will run from October 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010.

- YOU CHOOSE YOUR OWN BOOKS TO READ. Only trick is that you have to already own the book, be able to get it at the library, or borrow it during those three months. If you don't have any books on your TBR shelf at home or don't have access to a library and still want to participate, then I guess, pick up four new books if you wish.

If you want to change your selections at any time, that is fine.

Here are the categories for the book selection process - please note that these categories are slightly different than the last challenge and there are now Optional Add'l Book selections for those who wish for a bigger challenge:

(Definition of Urban Fantasy for this challenge: books with a vampire, werewolf, witch, or fae character or set in a UF world with some other mythical character or skill set)

* 1 Urban Fantasy Title
* 1 Urban Fantasy Title with a Single Character on the Cover - Male or Female
* 1 Other Fantasy OR Paranormal Romance Title (not strictly UF)
* 1 Other book by an author you've never read before (expanding your horizons!) - any genre

* Optional Add'l Book - Steampunk
* Optional Add'l Book - Post-Apocalyptic OR Dystopian theme
* Optional Add'l Book - Cover Hunt: Book with an animal on the cover


Please post in this topic ("yes, I am going to participate" or something like that) if you are going to do this challenge so I can compile a list of participants. You may join the challenge up to the final day of December.

When you've completed a book for the challenge, please come back to this thread and post a NEW comment with something like this:

Theresa 1/4 completed
