Obviously, I don’t participant in a lot of reading challenges any more. I don’t finish them! But Michelle at Galleysmith is hosting a Harry Potter challenge, and, since I’ve been wanting to reread the whole series for awhile, I’m going to give it a go!
Introducing the Harry Potter Reading Challenge
What: Read or listen to all seven books in the Harry Potter series
* Sorcerer’s Stone
* Chamber of Secrets
* Prisoner of Azkaban
* Goblet of Fire
* Order of the Pheonix
* Half-Blood Prince
* Deathly Hallows
When: The challenge will run from August 1, 2009 to July 31, 2010. I know we’re all busy with life and work and other such fun things so join up whenever you want, there are no deadlines to the challenge besides the end date above.
Where: E-to the Everywhere! Post reviews on your blog, chat about it on messageboards, post vlogs or podcasts, comment on and converse about it in the monthly post I create here on Galleysmith. It’s entirely up to you, as long as there is some evidence of your having completed each book along the way you are good to go.
I think I’m going to read these myself at probably the rate of one a month or so. I’m so looking forward to it and hope you will consider joining in as well! I mean, she is giving away gifts!
I mean come on….what is a party like without gifts? So, over the course of the year there will be giveaways y’all. All things Harry Potter are game so keep an eye out to see what’s happening as we’re truckin’ along.
Since I want to start this party off in style I’m going to give away two Harry Potter box sets (one paperback and one hardcover)! See….look….pretty!
All you need to do is sign up to participate in the challenge by August 15th and I’ll draw two lucky winners at random to recieve all seven books! How’s that for incentive right?
