Sign Up

Anyone can join, blog or not, you just need somewhere to post your reviews to share with the world. If you have a blog, a post about the challenge would be nice! Just add your details to the linky below to sign up.

I’ve made a couple of buttons and have modified the traditional challenge button for this year. Feel free to put them in your sidebar and use them in your review posts! Just save the image of your choice to your computer first please!

Timeline: 01 Jan 2012 – 31 Dec 2012. You can sign up from now right up until 31 Nov 2012.

Rules: The levels are back this year! Just pick your level and declare it in your post or in the comments below:

* Nosey: 3 novels
* Excited: 6 novels
* Content: 12 novels
* In Nirvana: 24 novels
* Obsessed: 48 novels

There is no need to list your books now (unless you are like me and love making lists), just pick as you go along and have fun! Books can most definitely be counted towards other challenges.

Any book format (ebook, print, audio) counts!

And because it can sometimes get a bit confusing (from Carolyns original post), Genres:

* Science Fiction: hard/soft SF, cyberpunk, time travel, alternative history, space opera
* Fantasy Fiction: dark fantasy, urban fantasy, magic realism, quest, mythical fantasy, steampunk
* Horror Fiction: paranormal, gothic literature, splatterpunk
* Supernatural Fiction
* Superhero Fiction
* Utopian and Dystopian Fiction
* Apocalyptic and Post-Apocalyptic Fiction

I’m going to go for the Obsessed level with 48 books. These will mostly be from my TBR pile, and combined with the Off the Shelf challenge, and audiobooks.
