Cozy Mystery Challenge 2010!

This challenge is being hosted by Kris from Not enough Books!
Join this challenge by visiting the Cozy Mystery Challenge blog!

What is a cozy some of you might ask?  Good question!  To make it brief: a cozy mystery is a mystery that doesn't normally have any rough language, sex scenes, or gruesome details about the killing, and the main character is normally an amateur detective.  Many times you will notice that a cozy mystery series also revolves around food or a hobby, although this isn't a requirement.  The Cozy-Mystery website does a great job of listing what a cozy mystery is and also contains a list of authors who write cozies (you can also browse series by theme! Seriously!  I just noticed that and they have a section for paranormal..I'll be checking that out soon.). 

The rules:

1. The challenge runs April 1st, 2010 through September 30, 2010.
2. The goal is to read at least 6 cozy mysteries, one for each month.  You can choose to read more, but you must read 6 in order to complete this challenge. You don't have to read 1 each month, you can read them whenever you like, you just have to read at least six.
3. While you can overlap with other challenges, please try to have at least 2 of the books only count towards this challenge.
4. Prizes you ask?  Everyone loves a prize! Everyone who completes this challenge will get a bookmark made by yours truly (even if I don't mail them in a timely manner - I will mail them.)
5. Sign-up using the dedicated form.  The form can be found in another post or here's a direct link.  While it would be great if you signed up before April 1st, last year I had several people who wanted to join but didn't learn about the challenge until after it had started. Therefore you can sign up anytime between now and September 1st.
