This challenge is all about tackling the mountain of books that I already own, before 2012, that I have not read yet. It does not matter how I acquired them, as long as I had them before the new year. The challenge is specifically for bloggers, as the ten hosts want quality reviews to link to the monthly wrap-ups. To further entice participants to complete their respective goals, every review linked up to the month's wrap-up post gets an entry into a drawing for a book from the Book Depository. Plus, every wrap-up post will have a unique theme and a mini-challenge. So there is LOTS to keep me busy with this challenge!
I'm going to start out at the second level of "A Friendly Hug" with 11-20 books. I will likely move up at least one level, though.
Some of the books I want to include in this challenge are as follows:
Beyond Opinion by Ravi Zacharias
Promises to Keep by Ann Tatlock
Patch by Mucheru Njaga
The Postmortal by Drew Magary
I Want to Know My Future by Linda Dipman
