Book Chick City's Zombie Challenge 2012

So I may have bitten off more than I can chew already (pun intended,) and signed up for a reading challenge for the year that can easily fit within my current challenge of reading 60 books this year.

I follow a lot of book reviewers on twitter and got a link to Book Chick City's blog. They're hosting a slew of book challenges for the year, and I decided to sign up for the Zombie one. Here's the guidelines of this fun challenge taken directly from their post:

Timeline: 01 Jan 2012 - 31 Dec 2012

Rules: There are FOUR (4) LEVELS to choose from:

- One Chomp: Read 6 Zombie books in 2012

- Two Chomps: Read 12 Zombie books in 2012

- Three Chomps: Read 18 Zombie books in 2012

- Four Chomps: Read 24 Zombie books in 2012

You don't have to select your books ahead of time, you can just add them as you go. Also if you do list them upfront you can change them, nothing is set in stone! The books you choose can crossover into other challenges you have on the go.

You can join at anytime. All books read in 2012 count towards the challenge regardless of when you sign up.

At the beginning of Jan 2012, you will find a link to specific month to add your reviews.

Audiobooks do not count, but all other formats are accepted.

Only fiction, no non-fiction ;)

This challenge can crossover to other challenges.

You don't have to have a blog to join in - for those without a blog but who use Goodreads, Amazon, LibraryThing etc, you can add the URL to where you track your books. If you don't have a URL at all then choose a name you would like to use and then copy and paste the following link:

I thought this sounded like fun, and it gets me to read outside my comfort zone. I'll be shooting for two chomps of delicious brains. So sign up for yourself, there's the link above to their home page, or the button to the right directly to the challenge itself.

Let me know if you decide to sign up for any challenges this year, I'd love to see what's out there throughout the months to challenge, inspire, or for just plain fun.
