2014 REAL BOOK CHALLENGE

I’m going to do a real quick sum up of this challenge: basically you set a goal of how many physical books you’re going to read in the coming year, and each book you finish earns you another entry into the monthly and grand prize giveaways!!! In a time where eBooks are dominating the market, it’s nice to have a reminder of where our love of reading all started–with words printed on paper and the weight of worlds within our hands and the smell of escape and the creak of a spine.

*sigh* I truly do love books.

And let me tell you something: I am BEYOND STOKED for this Challenge! HUGE thanks go out to everyone at Swoony Boys Podcast and Fiction Fare for putting this whole thing together. For full rules and details just click on the links above and they’ll lead you right on over to the official sites:)

So! Now for my personal goal (drum roll please) . . . 50 physical, page-flipping books! I’ll even tell you which books I plan to read:

So how about it? Do you have what it takes to make a dedicated goal of setting aside your eReader and picking up some “real” books? The beauty of this challenge is that the number doesn’t matter, it could even be as simple as one book! But the more books you read, the more entries you’ll have each month to win cool prizes, and the more entries you’ll have for the grand prize at the end of the year! So let’s all band together as the bookish people we are and read some more “real” books this year!;)
