Cat Sleuth Challenge

How in the world could I possibly resist a cat sleuth reading challenge? Cats, mysteries... two of my favorite things. Here's the info...

Rules & Sign-ups

1. Challenge runs from July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010. Join anytime, as long as you can read the required books.

2. Read 12 Cat Sleuth books from at least 4 different authors. A list would be nice but not necessary and is not written in stone (or even pen).

3. Overlaps with other challenges are purrfectly acceptable.

4. Blog about the challenge (with a link back to this post) then sign up. When you sign up, link to your challenge post, not your blog, unless we can easily find the link on your site.

5. You do not need your own blog to join the challenge, you can do all your challenge related posts here. Just email me (book dragons lair at gmail dot com) after you've signed-up and I'll add you to the blog. In fact, everybody can do their challenge related posts here.

6. You do not need to review your books but it would be nice. You could just post what book you read and a bit about it so we could see if we'd like to read it.

7. Come back often to report on your progress or just in June to leave a link with your wrap up post. I hope to have prizes but I'm undecided on the "rules" for receiving them, any ideas? To sign up, go to Cat Sleuth Challenge Blog

  1. Dewey the library cat would be a good one for this. Just started reading it for my book club!

  2. Evy - I'm going to use the Dewey book for the "What an animal challenge", but I don't think Dewey qualifies for a the cat sleuth challenge. I'm not sure that Dewey was a cat sleuth.

    Thanks, Blodeuedd :)

  3. Evy,
    Sorry, Yvonne is correct. Dewey was a great book but won't fit this one.

    Yvonne, WELCOME!

    ahem, now that you've grabbed the button, I've changed it....and slightly altered the rules :)

    Looking forward to your list.

  4. I changed to the new button (I love them!)and revised the rules. I'm hoping to have my list up later today.
