2015 Real Book Challenge

I found myself another challenge to join! Thought it would be easy for me since I LOVE and prefer reading REAL books! 


Welcome to 2015 “Real” Book Challenge!

Have you gotten used to reading on your Kindle, iPad, Nook, or other reading device? Do you have tons of pretty books filling your bookshelves that are just begging to be read (and maybe sniffed a little too)? Do you have a favorite book or series that you’ve been looking for a reason to reread? All these scenarios, and so many more, are the perfect reason to join the “Real” Book Challenge! Join us in a quest to put down the electronic devices and pick up a physical copy of your favorite book(s).

Challenge Guidelines:

  • *This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2015 - Dec 31, 2015.

  • *The challenge is open to anyone! You don't have to be a blogger, as long as you have a place to post about the challenge. (Your blog, Amazon, Goodreads, Twitter, Facebook, youtube, tumblr, etc.)

  • *Any book counts. It can be any genre, any length, and as old or new as you want. If you can hold it in your hand and turn the pages yourself, it belongs here. (This includes Advanced Reader Copies.)

  • *Feel free to list your books in your first post or wait until the end of the year and write them in a wrap-up post. Even if you list them, you can always make changes later.

  • *Sign-ups will be open until Dec 1, 2015, so feel free to join at any time throughout the year.

  • *When you sign up in the linky below, put the direct link to your post about joining the 2015 “Real” Book Challenge. (If you don't have a blog, post about it wherever you plan on making all your challenge posts this year!)

  • *On the 1st of each month we will post a wrap-up post, on Swoony Boys Podcast and Fiction Fare. Every wrap-up will have a giveaway and place for you to link up your wrap-up posts for the month. Each book that you read in the month will get you one entry in our giveaway for the month. Prizes will vary, and winners will be announced the following month in our newsletter.

  • *If you miss a wrap-up post + giveaway, you can link up your books the next month. Don’t try to count a book twice, we’ll be watching!

  • *December will be a wrap-up for the whole year. All the books you read January-November + the ones you'll link up in December will be entered into a GRAND PRIZE giveaway.


Still with us? Ready to join? Here’s how:

Comments are an award all on their own! So my blog is an award free one! Thanks for any consideration though!
