2013 2nds Challenge



Welcome to the 2013 2nds Challenge hosted by Darlene's Book Nook!

This challenge was formerly hosted by Katy at A Few More Pages. I contacted Katy to find out whether she would be hosting the challenge for 2013, and I did not receive any response. Her Twitter page says that she is "on hiatus," so I have taken the liberty of hosting the challenge myself!

Update: On January 14, 2013, I was contacted by Katy who informed me that she would love to have me take over the challenge. Thanks so much for your blessing, Katy!

This challenge is for those books that are 2nd in a series, or if you are going back for a second time reading an author that you've experienced only once.

Please read below for the challenge guidelines:

2013 2nds Challenge

Here are the challenge details:

1. This challenge will run from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013.

2. You can join the challenge at any time. All books read during the challenge period count for the challenge, regardless of when you sign up.

3. This challenge can cross-over to your other reading challenges.

4. You do not need a blog to participate! If you are not a blogger, you can post your reviews at Goodreads, Shelfari, or LibraryThing and link them up here.

5. All formats of books are acceptable: Bound copies, e-books, and audiobooks (unabridged only). 

6. There are four levels for the challenge:
