Speculative Fiction Reading Challenge 2011.

It seems it’s that time of year again when reading challenges start appearing and I’m ready to sign-up again for some of them.
I still need to write my wrap-up posts regarding this year but there’s time left. 🙂
Ok, so this year Speculative Fiction is hosted by Amanda at Floor to Ceiling Books.

Here are the rules:

* Timeline: 01 Jan 2011 – 31 Dec 2011

* Rules: To read 12 Speculative Fiction novels in 2011 (12 is the minimum – you can read more if you wish!)

* You don’t have to choose your books ahead of time, you can add them as you go. If you do list them upfront, you can change them. Books for this challenge can be used to fulfil other challenges.

* You can join anytime between now and the later part of next week.
 
Here is a link to the post where you can sign up.

The rules for this one are as follows:

Timeline: 1st Jan 2010~ 31st Dec 2010. Only books started on January 1st count towards this challenge.

Details:

1. Anyone can join. You don’t need a blog to participate.

3. Any book format counts.

4. You don’t have to select your books ahead of time, you can just add them as you go. Also if you do list them upfront then you can change them, nothing is set in stone!

5. The books you choose can crossover into other challenges you have on the go.

6. If you decide to join this challenge be sure to create a post telling others, please make sure you add a link back to the original post so others can join in.

There is more information on the challenge if you follow the link.

I joined in the Addicted category and will be posting links to reviews under here (or just listing them, depending on how many from one series I read).
