The Books About TV Reading Challenge

This challenge is being hosted by Callista at SMS Book Reviews

Please note this is not for books that were turned into a TV show. This is for books that are about or based on a TV show that was there first. There are a few different kinds from what I've thought of:
So finally to the challenge:

From January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010 you must read at least 2 books that are somehow about a TV show. It can be all of one kind above, a mix and match or whatever you want. If you find a book and you aren't sure if it counts, just email me at callista83 AT cogeco DOT ca (there's a link in my blogger profile).

I chose a small number of books so that more people might sign up. I've seen quite a few readers around who also love their TV so I hope this helps you feel like you are reading a book and watching TV.

A few other things:
  • You don't have to have a blog and you don't have to write a review. I'll have a spot here soon where you can link to your review if you do one, whether it's on a blog or Goodreads or Amazon or whatever.
  • E-books, audio books, crossovers and rereads are fine
  • If you read a book that would fit BEFORE you signed up for the challenge, you can count it, as long as it was AFTER January 1, 2010.
  • You don't have to create a list beforehand.
To join, just leave a comment at this link stating your intention. If you make a list of potential reads, please share the URL so others can get ideas. Or if you don't have a blog, share some ideas in the comment if you like, but it's not necessary. Post the reviews HERE!

  1. Wow you read two books for the challenge before one month has gone by. Way to go! I've never seen Doctor Who but I have seen Castle. It's pretty neat.

    Just one request. Could you change the link at the very beginning of your post? I'm Callista from http://smsbookreviews.blogspot.com, not Witch Media. That is a blog of mine too but not one I keep up regularly. SMS Book Reviews is my main book blog. Thanks.
