2010 A Buck A Book Challenge!

Ok ok…. before you go calling the CAA (Challenge Addicts anonymous) – hear me out.  This is a POSITIVE thing.  What Delgal’s Book Reviews has presented here, is a challenge for us to put away $1 for every book we read.  From Jan 1 – Dec 31, a buck a book put somewhere that you can not spend it.  At the end of the year you have a little bonus money for all the wonderful reads you read during the year and the money is to be used for something special for yourself.  Is it books?  A new book shelf?  Maybe it is a little pampering?  Die hard readers this could be the start to your BEA 2011 fund!  Whatever it is – it is yours for the reading!  How super fab cool is that?

So – of course I am in!  And I owe money for my January reads!  Pop in at Delgal’s Book Reviews for official details and to get signed up!  Come on!  EVERYBODY’S doing it!  :)

  1. What a great challenge..but.. I think I may go broke with it!

  2. Only a buck a book Lydia – if you pay as you go it should be doable…. :)

  3. Okay, this does sound good. But I would have to stash it in some special place that would be hard for me to access!

    I do need more bookshelves, though. Something like you put up near the ceiling, because I have no other spot for them!

  4. This does sound like a great idea. I wish you luck!

  5. This is such a good idea.

  6. This is a wonderful idea and you are right…what a great way to help get ready for the BEA. I would love to do that next year!

  7. I’m all for this! I am wanting a new bookshelf!

  8. I’m really toying with joining this challenge.

    I have an award for you here.

  9. This will be fun to see where I end up.

  10. I saw this on other blogs and I think it is such a creative idea. Way to go!

  11. Glad you joined up!

  12. Good luck Sheila! At the rate you read, am sure you’ll have your BEA 2011 fee in no time! :)

  13. Hey what a great idea! I’ll have to try it and maybe I could go on a book shopping spree ! It will be fun to see how much money everyone stashed and what they did with it!

  14. What a great idea! I’ll have to figure out what I’ve read this month and get started. I might use it on more books, or if I read a lot, I’ll use it on a mini vacation.
