2011 Show Me The Free Reading Challenge

This is the perfect challenge for me! I love this! Since I got my Nook in March, I can't tell you how many freebies from Barnes & Noble, as well as other Ebook sites, I downloaded. Almost everyday I'm downloading three or four free books. I have over 700 books on my Nook and most of them were free. This is the perfect way for me to start reading them. If you'd like to join in the fun, click the button above to sign up.

Here is how it works:

* Should you choose to participate in this challenge, your goal is to read at least twelve (12) legally obtained e-books which you got for FREE for your e-reading device. While twelve is the minimum there is no maximum limit.

* Anyone can join. You don't have to be a blogger, and you don't have to live in the United States.

* Any E-Reader will work for this challenge, including: iPad, Kindle, Nook, Kobo, Sony Reader, enTourage.

* Please Note: If you don't have an e-reading device, you can still join in with Amazon's Free Kindle Reading Apps which you can download for your iPhone, iPad, Mac, PC, Blackberry and more.

* The challenge runs from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011. You can join at anytime.

* e-books in ANY genre count for this challenge as long as it was FREE at the time that you downloaded it.

* Every month in 2011, I will make a post for the Show Me The Free Reading Challenge so you can link your reviews.

* Those that link their reviews will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a different prize each month, such as an Amazon or Barnes & Noble Gift Card, a bookmark, or a GelaSkins for your E-Reader. Winners will be announced at the end of each month.

Challenge Guidelines:

* If you blog, create a post announcing your participation in the challenge. Please include a link back to this post.

* Non blogger must publish reviews on some type of public domain such as Goodreads, Shelfari, LibraryThing, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble to enter the monthly giveaway.

* When you post your book review, you MUST say how you obtained the free read. Please make your source clear.

* You can list your books in advance or list them as you read them.

* Crossovers to other reading challenges is acceptable, but galley e-books DO NOT count. Again, this is a Reading Challenge to read as many of the FREE e-books legally offered for your e-reader. To get started, check out the Top 100 Free books on Amazon, or the Free e-books on Barnes & Noble.

* Any linked reviews that do not meet the guidelines will not be entered into the monthly drawing for the prize of the month.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting my blog! I always love reading comments and getting to know my readers!

After some careful consideration, I've decided to become an award-free blog. Although I appreciate and am honored by each and every award I've received, your comments and friendship are enough award for me. Thank you all so much for your thoughtfulness.

Due to way too many spam comments, I disabled the Anonymous User comments. We'll see if this works, otherwise I'll have to go back to word verification.
