My first(non-personal) reading challenge!

I love finding new blogs. I LOVE finding new blogs when they have to do with things I LOVE!

I was looking around today, reading a few blogs I follow and I saw this challenge! I knew I needed to do it. Not only do I love Nicolas Sparks books but I have quite a few on my shelf that I have yet to read. This is the perfect way to get me to read all of them(and to re-read a few I love). I own all the ones I put in blue but I have not read all the ones I have, the ones in red are the ones I've read already(I will come back and update as I read!)! I'm so bad like that! I think a trip to the book barn is in order to get the ones I don't have!

So here we go!

Nicholas Sparks Reading Challenge

Nicholas Sparks Reading Challenge
hosted by The Book Vixen
  • Runs January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011(books read prior to 1/1/11 do not count towards the challenge). You can join at anytime – Sign up on The Book Vixen’s blog.
  • The goal is to read or re-read as many Nicholas Sparks novels as you’d like. See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you. Nothing is set in stone; you can change levels at any time during the challenge.
  • Books can be any format (bound, eBook, audio).
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are fine.
  • You can list your books in advance or list them as you read them. It is not required that you review the books you read for this challenge but feel free to do so.
  • Post this reading challenge on your blog so you can keep a list of the books you’ve read for this challenge. Please include a link back to this post so readers can join the challenge too.
  • You do not have to be a book blogger to participate. You can keep tabs on books you’ve read for this challenge on Goodreads or LibraryThing if you’d like (maybe make a shelf for “Nicholas Sparks Reading Challenge”). If you are not on either of those sites then you can list the books you read for this challenge in the comments on my wrap-up post, which will be up at the end of 2011.

     First Date – Read 1–4 Nicholas Sparks novels
     Going Steady – Read 5–8 Nicholas Sparks novels
     Engaged – Read 9–12 Nicholas Sparks novels
     Married – Read 13–16 Nicholas Sparks novels

List of Nicholas Sparks novels:
     The Notebook
     Message in a Bottle
     A Walk to Remember 

     The Rescue
     A Bend in the Road
     Nights in Rodanthe

I'm going to do my best and read all of them! I have faith that I can do it but I don't want to promise in case I fall short! Head on over and join up if you feel like reading some great books!
