Young Readers Challenge
I really couldn't resist signing up for this one. Becky from Becky's Book Reviews is hosting Young Readers Challenge. I'm mostly signing up for this because my daughter and I have been wanting to read some books together, and this will gives us an incentive.
Here are the rules:
Read 12 children's books in 2009.
'Children's books' are defined as anything written to be read (or read aloud) to children 12 and under.
Examples of children's books are: board books, picture books, early readers, chapter books.
No list is required. If you choose to post one, you can change it as needed. But it isn't required at all.
Audio books work.
Rereads are acceptable, but try to mix it up old and new if you can.
Overlaps with other challenges are acceptable.
You may consider yourself 'finished' with the challenge if/when you complete the twelfth book. (You could finish it January if you're ambitious. But there is no requirement to read one book per month all year long.) If you want to keep going past twelve books, that's fine. I won't stop you!
