Introducing the Harry Potter Reading Challenge

<<cough cough>> Dang all that awesome mist and fog is getting me all verklempt.

Anyway, the deets:

What: Read or listen to all seven books in the Harry Potter series

  • Sorcerer’s Stone
  • Chamber of Secrets
  • Prisoner of Azkaban
  • Goblet of Fire
  • Order of the Pheonix
  • Half-Blood Prince
  • Deathly Hallows

When: The challenge will run from August 1, 2009 to July 31, 2010.  I know we’re all busy with life and work and other such fun things so join up whenever you want, there are no deadlines to the challenge besides the end date above.  :)

Where: E-to the Everywhere!  Post reviews on your blog, chat about it on messageboards, post vlogs or podcasts, comment on and converse about it in the monthly post I create here on Galleysmith.  It’s entirely up to you, as long as there is some evidence of your having completed each book along the way you are good to go.

How: Get thee to Mr. Linky below.  Sign up to join in and play, cause you know….Harry would want you to and all!

Then, post a kick off post on your blog and link it back up according to the details on the monthly HPRC post also available here on Galleysmith :)    You can find August’s post already up! If you don’t have a blog then comment to the post I put up each month and point us to where you are chatting about it or join/start a conversation of your own right then and there.

Oh but the fun doesn’t stop there!!

I have one more thing you might want to hear about….

Party Gifts!!
I mean come on….what is a party like without gifts?  So, over the course of the year there will be giveaways y’all.  All things Harry Potter are game so keep an eye out to see what’s happening as we’re truckin’ along.

Since I want to start this party off in style I’m going to give away two Harry Potter box sets (one paperback and one hardcover)!  See….look….pretty!
