A Buck A Book Challenge

Welcome to DelGal's “A-Buck-A-Book” Challenge.

Here's a great way to reward yourself for reading persistence and save money at the same time. Read as many books as you'd like, there is no minimum, and there is no maximum. BUT, here's the "catch", you MUST physically take a dollar and save it somewhere safe where it won't be spent, every time you complete a book. At the end of the year, your total money saved will be the total amount of books read, ideally the more book read, the more money saved.

Now, once Dec 31 comes, you're must spend this saved money on something fun just for yourself (no paying bills, no buying gifts for someone else!), to begin the next year... Maybe more books for the new year? A nice dinner out to celebrate reading? The possibilities are endless! Finally, once this challenge completes on Dec 31st, please let your blog fans, and fellow challenge participants, know what you decided to spend your money on by posting whatever it may be. If it's $5 or if it's $100, we want to know what you rewarded yourself with for a year of hard yet enjoyable fun reading!

In short - put aside a dollar for each book you read. Post in the comment section your progress if you don't have a blog, or a link to your blog. At the end of the year update us as to what you did with your saved money. That's it!

Note:  This post is also posted on my challenge blog.

Books read:  2
Dollars saved:  $2.00


Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. This is such a great idea....I'm in!

  2. Not doing the challenge but as I was reading Google Reader I cam upon a little post that said you won a Sony Pocket Reader and I just wanted to say CONGRATS!! You have been very lucky the last week or so I see your name all over the

  3. Thanks for stopping by!

    CelticLady--yes, I won the reader and I did a post about it. I have been very lucky lately...I am blessed!

  4. Sounds like fun, I may have to do this one.

  5. Golly I would have had over $100 last year. But I know me, I'd only use it to buy more books--that would be if I remembered to tuck away the money, which I won't. I'm like that!
