Sign up: Mini Book Challenge for 2011!

I stayed up way too late tonight trying to figure out how to create a cute button, make a linky list and enable button grabbing so I could bring you:

  • This challenge goes from Jan. 1st 2011- Apr. 1st 2011
  • Rules: Choose 4 books according to the following guidelines:
  1. Something old
  2. Something new
  3. Something borrowed
  4. Something blue
  • You don't have to pick the books ahead of time! Be creative! While the other categories are self explanatory, 'Something blue' can mean a book with a blue cover, a book with the word 'blue' in the title, a book that takes place at sea...anything you want!

How to sign up:

<a href=""><img src="" />

  • Place the button on your sidebar & create a post that you can link me to via the linky at the bottom of this post!
  • Leave me a comment to let me know you're participating, I would love to follow you back and check out your book reviews!
Update: After linking your initial post about this on the linky here, post your reviews HERE.

Happy Reading!


  1. I think this will work well with the other challenges that I am participating in.. thanks for the fun idea!

  2. I think that I just put my link in the linky with my blog address and not the link to the post, sorry.

  3. Yay!!! Somehow I did it!!! I figured out how to use the linky tool! Thanks, Toya, for your comment on my latest post. You've inspired ME to write again like I used to always do... Your music blog has also really inspired me to get into the habit of watching operas and staying knowledgeable in that way. There are still so many I've never seen and I have no good excuse for that.

    Are you by any chance going to see Summer & Smoke at MSM? I have an extra ticket for Friday night if you're interested.


  4. Oh my gosh! I would love to go this Friday?! Yeah count me in! I will somehow message you my number and things! Wheee!

    PS: Thanks for signing up, you are awesome!

  5. What a great challenge! I will be overlapping with the classics challenge but this will definitely require some thought.

  6. Great challenge. I put the button on my sidebar and will be signing up officially and making a post later this month.

  7. I'm so new to challenges. I'm not sure if I should overdo it. I've got three I'm planning on trying for 2011. I may give this one a try, but I don't want to set myself up to fail....

    More than anything though, I wanted to commend you on the originality and creativeness of this challenge. Its not like one I've seen yet. It sounds fun!

    PS: hope you had a good time on your outing.

  8. This sounds like a cool challenge. I'm totally in!

  9. I'm in! I was at first hesitant to join any reading challenge but I decided, what the heck, I can do this! Really excited for this! Thank you for coming up with this great mini challenge :D
