Holiday Break Reading Challenge

Here's a great reading challenge for those of you who plan on burying your nose in a book over the holidays. I'm on break from school for over a month, so I decided to join Karin's Holiday Break Reading Challenge.

Here's what Karin has to say about it:
1) Anyone can participate. I'm focusing on teachers and students, but if you want to cram a little extra reading in during the holiday season, please join us.

2) The Reading Challenge is designed to be self-paced. I will ask for you to set a goal for the number of books you want to read, but if you don't reach the goal - no big deal. This is for fun.

3) You don't have to provide a list of books you plan to read in advance. You can, but it isn't required. My mood determines what I read so I usually don't stick to a list. If I can't do it, I don't want to force others to do it.

4) The Holiday Break Reading Challenge corresponds with my time off from school. So, it starts on Friday, December 18, 2009 and ends on Sunday, January 3rd, 2010 at Midnight.

5) I'll have a section set up on the blog for reviews. Please link your reviews of the books you complete during the challenge.

6) Everyday there a new "Challenge" will be posted. These "Challenges" are designed to help you get to know other bloggers, talk about what you are reading, and share information about books. A new Mr. Linky (if I can figure it out) will be used in each post to record everyone's responses.

7) HERE IS THE BIG ONE! At least one prize will be given out everyday during the Reading Challenge. This might be a book, a bookmark, or other swag. No specifics lined up yet.

8) Be sure to follow the Reading Challenge on Twitter. New challenges and prize information will be announced there, too.

9. Grab the button to put on your blog.

My goal is to read at least 5 books. My tentative list is as follows:
-The Maze Runner by James Dashner - REVIEW
-The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson - REVIEW
-Frozen Fire by Tim Bowler - REVIEW
-When We Were Saints by Han Nolan - REVIEW
-Gossip Girl by Cecily von Ziegesar - REVIEW
I accomplished my goal, but here's another book I read:
-Gossip Girl (#2): You Know You Love Me by Cecily von Ziegesar - REVIEW
-Gossip Girl (#3): All I Want is Everything by Cecily von Ziegesar - REVIEW
