Mad Reviewer Reading Challenge




The Mad Reviewer Reading Challenge is to read and review (either on Goodreads, Amazon or your own blog) 104 books in one year starting January 1, 2016 and ending December 31, 2016.
Carrie is fully aware that not everyone has time to read 104 books, so she has set up various levels:

1.  Mad Reviewer: 104 books in one year. (2 books a week all year.)
2.  Crazy Reviewer: 52 books in one year. (1 book a week all year.)
3.  Slightly Sane Reviewer: 26 books in one year. (1 book every fortnight all year.)
4.  Sane Reviewer: 12 books in one year.  (1 book every month all year.)

She also has a full set of rules at the sign-up link. Head on over and check it out!
