2014 Challenge Guidelines:

- Non bloggers: participate by linking up your profile URL from the site you plan to post your reviews on such as Facebook, Goodreads, Shelfari, LibraryThing, Amazon, etc.
- You can list your books in advance or list them as you read them, the choice is yours.
- Crossovers to other reading challenges are acceptable.
- You can choose to read books from each of the categories (as explained below) or you can read books from a combination of 1 or 2 of the categories (ex: if you are not interested in reading Video Game Tie-in’s but read a lot of Manga or GN’s). For instance you can read 11 graphic novels and 1 video game based novel. Or, all the books can come from one category. The choice is yours as long as you are reading!
5 Challenge Levels (Based on Video Game Settings):
Level 1 Arcade Gamer – Casual Player

The objective is to challenge yourself and see how many books in the above genres you can read in a year. You can always go up a level but you can never go down. This is a great challenge for people who have never tried a Graphic Novel or Video Game based novel, for people who are discovering them for the first time, and for those of us who are gamers that read books based off of some of our favorite games! If you are unsure if a book will fit into any of the aforementioned categories or you have general questions, don’t hesitate to CONTACT ME.
Thanks everyone in advance for your participation. And don’t forget to spread the word!
