A Well-Rounded Challenge

Beginning July 1, 2008, join me in this eclectic reading game. Read a minimum of 6 (six) books. Read 1 book from 6 different challenges that you've signed up for. The challenges you choose must run during the 6 month period of this challenge (7/1/08 - 12/31/08). For example, I'm signed up for Book Around the World (a perpetual challenge) and I might choose my July book from that challenge; August's from 101 Books in 1001 Days (runs until 8/28/10); September from 1% Well Read (runs until 2/28/09); October from Book a Week (runs until 12/31/08); November from Read It Again (perpetual) and December from Man Booker (runs until 12/31/08).

*Any combination of challenges works.
*You must be signed up with the other challenges.
*You may listen to eAudio, cassette tapes or compact discs.
*You may read all six books from the same challenge.
*To be well-rounded however means stretching yourself to include as many challenges (and books) as you can fit into this six month time frame.
*You don't have to blog or write a review (but you can if you want to).
*Even if a challenge begins after July you may use it for this challenge.
*Even if a challenge ends after 12/31/08 you may use it for this challenge.
*Sign-ups begin 6/1/08 and run through 7/15/08.
*This challenge will run through 12/31/08.
