The Flashback Challenge will run from January 1, 2010 – December 31, 2010. If you’re super-excited and want to reread a book before that, feel free, and let me know. If many people do so, then I’ll do a December challenge linky post and you can all link to it here. Otherwise, we can hold them over to January.
You can sign up for the following levels:
Bookworm – Up to three books
Scholar – Four to six books
Literati – Over six books
Within these levels, we have mini-challenges! These are:1. Re-read a favorite book from your childhood2. Re-read a book assigned to you in high school3. Re-read a book you loved as an adultThus, if you sign up for the Bookworm level, you could ostensibly choose to read one book from each mini-challenge. Or you could choose to do none of the above (though, granted, not sure what you could have possibly read that does not fit into either childhood, high school or adulthood).
Also, would just like to make clear that this isn’t specifically limited to books you loved reading previously and want to reread. It could also be a book you don’t remember enjoying. Or just don’t remember reading. It might be interesting to see how your perceptions may have changed.
I signed up for the literati level and all three mini-challenges. I love rereading books and this challenge gave me the excuse that I needed to reread tons of them! :-D Doing the mini-challenges helped me narrow down some choices so that I could also complete other challenges, but I still reread a lot and included them all in the count. :-)
