Mini-Challenge Extended--W-I-N The Mists of Avalon!

Unfortunately, we had no participants in the mini-challenge I set down for February through April so I've extended it through October.  The guidelines are basically the same, but I've crossed out the original months and replaced them with two months, so you get two months to read one book for each category.  Here are all the details:

February May/June -- read a book with "love" or some kind of display/description of affection in the title or on the cover, i.e. Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead or Dark Lover by J.R. Ward.

March July/August - read a classic tale, i.e. A Midsummer Night's Dream by Shakespeare or Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.

April September/October - a book with an animal in the title or on the cover.

We will not have a mini-challenge in November/December due to the holidays.  No need to sign up here.  Just post your reviews as you complete the categories in the mini-challenge review linky in the sidebar.
  • Remember that all books must be from the challenge list, which can be found in the pages section at the top of the sidebar.  The examples given above are all from the list
  • Review linky is in the right sidebar.
  • Everyone who completes the challenge by reading at least one book per 2 months following the  criteria for those months will be entered in the giveaway (winner will be chosen randomly via
  • The winner will receive a gently used copy of one of the most awesome fantasy books ever written, The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley (which is on the list, incidentally).  If the chosen winner is not in the U.S., they will have the option of either paying postage and handling for the book to be sent or choosing a book (under $5) from The Book Depository or Better World Books, whichever company delivers to your country.
  • Have fun and good luck completing the challenge!
