Lost Books Challenge

I know I said I was done finding and signing up for more challenges, but this came up and I couldn't resist. I have been a lost addict since the first time I saw Jack open his eyes, so I am so in for this...

Here are the rules:

) Round two of the LOST books challenge will launch Wednesday January 21st and continue until the series finale in 2010. Participants can join at any time.

2) Participants are asked to choose at least five books off the list of books alluded to or mentioned on the show to complete by the time the series concludes in 2010. If participants did not complete the first challenge, they can use those same books again. Find books here, here, or here.

3) The LOST books challenge will have its own blog. Participants can cross post their reviews directly onto the blog. But to add to the fun, participants can post about anything related to LOST (except for spoilers)...recaps of the episodes, theories, etc. It will be sort of a fun place for book blogging Losties.

4) I promise to try to keep it fresh and interesting with mini-challenges and contests.

5) To sign up, write a post with the books you intend to read and link back to this sign-up post to invite others along for the fun. Then come and drop the permalink to your post in the Mister Linky.

6) If you want to post to this blog, send me an email at lostbookschallengeATgmailDOTcom If you just want me to post a link to your review with a short excerpt, send the link to lostbookschallengeATgmailDOTcom

I read Lord of the Flies and Are You There God last year. I've got Catch 22 and Watershipdown on this year's list. Happy reading.
