My very own mini-challenge



I am, as I have mentioned before, well behind on my challenge reading. So, naturally, I joined Carl's Once Upon a Time III. As you do.


So. For the month of April I'm having/hosting (it'll be having if no one else will play with me; hosting if they do) a catch-up.


I have three no, four challenges now that have specific subjects. Well three. I don't have books for Carl's challenge yet.


BUT I do have books for Dewey's challenge, the Art History challenge, and the Dream King challenge.


So, for April I'm going to read four books, one from each of those challenges.


For the Dream King challenge, http://dreamkingchallenge.blogspot.com/2008/12/dream-king-challenge-rules.html I'll read Smoke and Mirrors.


For the Art History challenge, http://www.arthistoryreadingchallenge.blogspot.com/ The Agony and the Ecstasy


and for the Dewey challenge, http://deweysbooks.wordpress.com/March, by Geraldine Brooks.


For the Once Upon a Time challenge http://www.stainlesssteeldroppings.com/?p=1083 .... Something, by Somebody.





Feel free (pleasepleaseplease) to play along. I can't make buttons or anything, but if anyone out there has mad artistic skillz, you have my full permission to use any cat photo I've posted here.

The rules, such as they are is to read up to four books in up to four challenges with specific subjects you're involved in.

It'll run from April 1-April 30.
There are no prizes, except you know, bragging rights, or something.

Ahem ... please play with me ....

I'll definitely play along! I didn't join the challenges you joined, but I have over 50 challenges going, so I'll definitely find some books. I'll come back with a link to my blog post later today, okay :-)

Great idea, how about thisfor a logo? I"m at my mom's computer which doesn't have as good a program so I can do better if you want, just let me know callista83 AT cogeco DOT ca. Also please have people save it to their own computer and not link to it.
