2014 ARC Reading Challenge

This is another challenge I've done and completed each year, so I'm signing up again. It's hosted by Teddy at So Many Precious Books, So Little Time.

Here's the info...

This is the original ARC Challenge That I created in 2010,I hope all of you ARC Readers will join me again in 2014 for the ARC Reading Challenge. I welcome old and new participants. I don't know about you, but my ARC pile is way too big.

Note: I use the term "ARC" loosely, any book a publisher or author gives you with the expectation that you review it, counts for this challenge.
The Levels

Level Bronze: .a. All of us who have or will have less than 12 ARCS must read all of the ARCS we have. Note, that if you have 11 ARC's and then receive a 12th one you will be bumped up to category b.

b. All of us who have or will have 12 or more than 12 ARCS must read and review at least 12.

Level Silver: Read 24 ARCS

Level Gold: Read 35 ARCS

Level Platinum: Read 40 or more ARCS
To sign up, leave a direct link to your blog post about this challenge. Please leave a comment as well.

You Can join this challenge at any time throughout the year.

You don't have to make a list of which ARC's you plan to read, but you can if you want.

If you choose a lower level, you can always change it to a higher level if you like. However, you cannot go from a higher level back down to a lower level.

Crossovers with other challenges are allowed and Audio-books and ebooks are allowed as long as they were given to you for review.

Read the books and review them on your blog. If you don't have a blog, you can post your review on sites like Powells, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc.
