451 Challenge!

Welcome to the 451 Challenge! This challenge is based on 451 Fridays, a weekly feature hosted at As Usual, We Need More Bookshelves. 

We have compiled an amazing list of books this year in our weekly 451 Fridays posts, and it's time to start reading them! So, the 451 Challenge was born.

Here is how it will work:

Between January 1, 2010 and November 30, 2010, participants are challenged to read books on the 451 master list.

There will be several levels of participation: 
Spark - read 1-2 books from the master list
Ember - read 3-4 books from the master list
Flame - read 5-6 books from the master list
Blaze - read 7 or more books from the master list

Re-reading is acceptable, as are crossovers with other challenges. Audio, print, and e-books are all acceptable. Each month, participants will be encouraged to post their reviews on the challenge blog, and each review posted will be an entry into a grand prize drawing for a $25 gift card to the online bookseller of the winner's choice.

This is my first time hosting a challenge, so if I've forgotten something important, please let me know. Let's have fun!!

Sign up using Mr. Linky here - please link to your specific post about the challenge, not just your blog.

I'll go with the Blaze level!
