This challenge has been suspended until next spring or summer. Please read about my decision here. I will still give credit for re-reads if you post the link on the suspension post.
I decided (with a bit of encouragement from Tif) that if I am going to hassle some of you for not re-reading your books, I should give you a chance to redeem yourselves or, if you are already a re-reader, to enjoy yourselves. So let me introduce The Re-Read Challenge. Yes, I know ... it's an incredibly snappy name! Luckily, it's quite an easy challenge and I hope that you will all participate.
Here are the details:
When: Between September 1 and November 31.
What: Read at least one book from your shelves (or the library if you don't keep books) that you have read at least once before. For each book that you re-read and write about, you will get one entry into the prize drawing. All books are acceptable for this challenge except picture books. Collections of short stories or poetry will count as one book and must be read in their entirety to count.
Who: All bloggers and readers around the world are welcome to participate.
How: Just link either your starting post which you update with re-reads or link each post that you write about a re-read in the Mister Linky below. If you don't have a blog, you can tell us about the re-reads in the comments of this post. I will update this post before the prize drawing (in the week after the challenge ends) listing everyone's numbers as reported so that you can correct me if I've missed anything.
I'm assuming that most re-reads will either be books that you loved or books that you can't remember and need to visit again. Either way, it will be fascinating to read the posts about your experiences with these books! So start thinking about your list or just begin a re-read today.
Dusting the shelves for everyone,
