Previously hosted by J. Kaye's Book Blog and Royal Reviews, the 1st in a Series Challenge is hosted by Kate at A Few More Pages this year.
Guidelines for the 1st in a Series Challenge 2011:
1. Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate. If you're not a blogger, leave your information in the comments.
2. There are four levels for this challenge:
Series Novice: Read 3 books that are the first in any series.
Series Lover: Read 6 books that are the first in any series.
Series Expert: Read 12 books that are the first in any series.
Series Fanatic: Read 20 books that are the first in any series. (I expect to get this)
You can list your books in advance or just put them in a wrap up post. If you list them, feel free to change them as the mood takes you. Any genre counts.
3. The challenge runs from January 1 through December 31, 2011.
4. You can join anytime between now and December 31, 2011.
5. If you're a blogger, write up a sign-up post that includes the URL to this post so that others can join in. Feel free to use the button above. When you sign up in the Linky, put the direct link to your 1st in a Series Challenge sign-up post.
