The Lunatic Who Is Signing Up For Too Many Challenges! (Royal Reviews Sign Ups)

This is my first post regarding Challenges I will be joining in 2010.  I spent all last night working on compiling many of my lists (yes, I'm very anal!).  I have determined that I am joining over 30 challenges, which includes a few I had already signed up for that started in the fall and perpetual challenges (including my Michener Challenge).  I will be keeping track of all my challenges at my new challenge blog Challenges of The True Book Addict, where all my challenge buttons will be listed, but I will still post updates here.  One thing about all these challenges is that ALL books listed come from my own shelves...how cool is that?!

So...my first challenge sign up post is for the four challenges I'm joining over at Royal Reviews.

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. Thanks for the heads-up! I'm signed up for the audiobook challenge.

    Happy New Year!

  3. Thirty challenges in one year?! That is indeed lunacy, lol. Though there were many that interested me, I decided to go easy on myself and only committed to four or five. I figure I can always sign up for others later if desired. Happy Reading, and Happy New Year!
