Diane @ Bibliophile by the Sea is hosting this challenge.
Here are the guidelines - copy/pasted from Diane's blog.
- Between now and December 31, 2009, make a list of between 10 and 20 Books to Read Before You Die. (depending on interest, this may be an annual event challenge).
- The books on your list can come from your stacks or the library, and be in print or audio format.
- Once you've created your post with tentative titles, THEN sign up using Mr. Linky, by pasting the link to your post, along with your name/blog name. This is how you will be registered. Finalize your list by 12/31/09 (no changes to the list after 12/31/09).
- NOTE: If you don't have a blog, you can still sign up and join in the fun.
- All bloggers who complete the challenge will be entered in giveaway to win an Amazon Gift Card.
- Questions/comments, please feel free to comment or email me.
