You've made it to the 4th level.

This challenge is for serious readers. This is the 4th level of this challenge. The challenge consists of many levels, each level consisting of 100 books. So if you have not completed your three hundred, go back and complete Level 1, 2 and/or 3 of the Serious Readers Challenge for 2012. Just create your list of books (at this level label them 301 through 400) and mark them off with a strike through them as you finish. If you find you can't finish one of the books on your list for any reason, you may replace it with another. Also, if you just want to decide what you read as you go you can do that as well. Since this challenge is for the year 2012 any books you've read this year (if you get a late start) may be included. If you get done with one level, but I haven't created the next just let me know and I'll add the next level to our challenge as soon as I can. This is a free choice challenge. Read whatever you want. Hopefully, all is clear. Happy reading.

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 15159 comments Welcome, Leslie!


message 19: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 2240 comments Thanks, Lisa Kay!!


message 20: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 15159 comments You've got some books there that I want to read, Leslie. Would be interested in what you think.


message 21: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 2240 comments Which ones are you interested in? By the way, I know you like Marsha Canham as well. I just finished her Robin Hood Trilogy and it was wonderful. She is such an amazing writer!


message 22: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 15159 comments Oh, I need to get back to that series; I've only read the first one. I've had The Iron Rose lined up to read forever. I haven't read anything by Sharon Kay Penman yet, but I want to.


message 23: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 15159 comments And, of course, The Pleasure of Your Kiss. Actually...there are a lot more. You know I love romance. LOL!


message 24: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 2240 comments I have a real fondness for Theresa Medeiros. I love how she writes. Lisa Kay, I can honestly say that I am a romance junkie. If I look back at my life - I have been reading romance in one form or another since I was a young child. I loved fairy tales when I was little because of the romance. I loved Robin Hood because of the romance. I want a HEA in everything I read.
If you like Historical fiction - there is no better writer of it than SKP. She makes it absolutely come alive.


message 25: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 15159 comments Yes, Leslie, I love SKP. Just listened The Great Escape (Wynette, Texas, #7) by Susan Elizabeth Phillips . However, I love her older ones. I've got them lined up to "re-read" via my ears. LOL!
