Winner of the 2nd Mini-Challenge and Announcement

I apologize for the delay with the winner and the new review linkys.  I have had a lot of personal stuff going on in my life the past several months...a big move, a major financial crisis, and I have been neglectful of this challenge and I'm sorry.  Now, the winner of the mini-challenge that ended at the end of May is Alleluialu.  I will email you with the code for your $10 Better World Books Gift cert. as soon as I can.  As I said, my finances are pretty bad so it could be a little bit, but I will get it to you.  If you read this before I email you, send me an email so I know I have the correct email address at truebookaddictATgmailDOTcom

Regretfully, I am going to postpone the next mini-challenge until Fall.  With my finances as they are, I just can't offer a prize and I'm so busy trying to find a job and with my writing and blogging obligations, I haven't even had time to think up a mini-challenge.  I hope you all are not too disappointed and will stick with the challenge.  I'm slowly whittling away at the list myself, but I keep forgetting to link my reviews over here.  After all, I'm part of the challenge too. =O)  I promise I will try to come up with an awesome mini-challenge for Fall.  If you have any ideas, please let me know.

Since there is no mini-challenge for June - September, please post your reviews in the non-mini-challenge review linky (page in sidebar).  Thank you for being patient.  Remember, if you ever have any questions, please feel free to email me.

Happy Fantasy Reading!

FIRST MINI-CHALLENGE RESULTS AND NEW MINI-CHALLENGE ANNOUNCEMENT did you do on the mini-challenge for October through January?  According to the linky for mini-challenge reviews, Sniffly Kitty completed all 13 books read, with Alleluialu coming in second with 6 books read.  Great job, ladies! According to these results, Sniffly Kitty is the winner of the $10 Better World Books gift certificate, unless anyone else completed 13 and just didn't link up.  If you did read the 13 books for the mini-challenge, leave your review links in the comments or in the Linky within a couple of days.  If I do not hear from anyone else, then I will email Sniffly Kitty with her gift certificate information.

I am making this next mini-challenge more simple, just for my sanity and for yours as well...LOL! The mini-challenge is to read one book (from the list of 101 OR the entire list of 813) for each month, February through May.  Each person who reads the required 4 books will receive 4 points...that's 4 entries in the giveaway.  For each book you read above the 4 book requirement, you will receive an extra point.  For instance, if you read 6 books, you will receive 6 points...that's 6 entries in the giveaway.  The prize, once again, will be a $10 gift certificate to Better World Books.  I will have a page for you to link your mini-challenge reviews.  Again, it will be in the sidebar. 

Good luck...I hope you get a lot of great fantasy reading done!
