I found another one! I am joining Quirky Girls Read's The Classic Bribe reading challenge. It is a summer reading challenge. And you all know that I can't resist a challenge. Especially one that only requires that I read one book.

Summer Reading Classics Challenge & Giveaway:

  • Read at least 1 Classic over the summer – between June 1st and the end of Labor Day Weekend, September 5th

  • You can have begun the Classic prior to June 1st, but it needs to have been completed between the challenge dates above

  • Post a review on your blog of each Classic that you read during the challenge period and reference a link to this The Classic Bribe challenge page

  • Link to each of your reviews separately by clicking on Mr. Linky below

  • Each linked review counts as 1 entry – no entry limit per blogger – read and review as many as you like

  • Each entry builds up $1 toward an Amazon gift card – the more entries the higher the balance can grow – capped at $35

  • Random winner selected Labor Day weekend from all entries- no restrictions on region

  • Winner receives the full Amazon gift card balance accumulated based on entries received

    I've seen several challenge participants anticipating a read of Middlemarch - enough to make me think I should delve in to it myself.
