Hooked To Books Reading Challenge 2017

Hooked To Books Reading Challenge

Welcome to the Hooked To Books Reading Challenge 2017!

Every year, we set our goals of the number of books we want to finish on Goodreads. Reading is amazing and inspiring in itself, but sometimes we need some some fun competition to make it more motivating to accomplish the goals.

So here we are, hosting this readathon among ourselves and our beloved bloggers, hoping to get everyone more motivated to cross their finish line.

HTB Reading Challenge

Who can join the readathon?

You are welcome to participate if you are a book lover who has

  • A blog that discusses books and reading, and
  • a Goodreads account.

How to participate?

Each of us will “register” with a level we want to conquer, depending on our 2017’s reading goal on Goodreads. There are 4 levels:

  • 30 books: Keen Reader
  • 70 books: Avid Reader
  • 120 books: Bookaholist
  • 200 books: Bookworm Extremist

What genres of books count?

We don’t have limitations on the genres or kinds of books you read. We’d love to know if our bookworms read on broad topics of lives. They can be new release or books published long ago – it doesn’t matter.

What matters is you enjoy them and are determined to finish your goals!

How are the winners chosen?

As for the Bookworm Extremist level, each of the first 10 persons to cross the finish line will win a Kindle Paperwhite. Because this is a hardcore level, we will also give out a gift card worth $150 to one winner among all of those (including the first 10) who completed this level via a random pick. Excited?
