Pub Challenge 2010

Hosted by 1 More Chapter
January 1 – December 31, 2010

Here are the 2010 rules:

  1. Read a minimum of 10 books first published in 2010. You don’t have to buy these. Library books, unabridged audios, or ARCs are all acceptable. To qualify as being first published in 2010, it must be the first time that the book is published in your own country. For example, if a book was published in Australia, England, or Canada in 2009, and then published in the USA in 2010, it counts (if you live in the USA). Newly published trade paperbacks and mass market paperbacks do not count if there has been a hardcover/trade published before 2010.
  2. No children’s/YA titles allowed, since we’re at the ‘pub.’
  3. At least 5 titles must be fiction.
  4. Crossovers with other challenges are allowed.
  5. You can add your titles as you go, and they may be changed at any time.
  6. Sign up at the Pub Challenge site using Mr. Linky.
  7. Have fun reading your 2010 books!

MY LIST:

  1. The Day I Shot Cupid by Jennifer Love Hewitt
  2. Twilight: Graphic Novel Volume 1 by Stephenie Meyer
  3. Linchpin by Seth Godin
  4. Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris
  5. Rich Again by Anna Maxted
  6. Everything Counts by Gary Ryan Blair
  7. The Anah’jari File by Douglas Armentrout
  8. Delivering Happiness by Tony Hsieh
  9. Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang by Chelsea Handler
  10. 9th Judgment by James Patterson

  6. If you’d like to be a contributor on the Book Awards blog, email me at 3m.michelle at gmail and reference your blog address if you have one. (I must have your email address, so comments to this post won’t work.)
