Maud Hart Lovelace Reading Challenge 2010



Hurray! It's officially time to begin the second annual Maud Hart Lovelace Reading Challenge!

This challenge will run here at A Library is a Hospital for the Mind from October 1 through October 31 and will include book reviews, trivia posts, and give-aways!


Here are the "rules" to participate:

1. Select which Lovelace book (or books) you wish to read during the coming month.

2. Write a post announcing your plans to participate in the challenge. You can include your reading list or just use the post to spread the word about the reading challenge to your readers. Then sign up here by linking your name and blog to the challenge (see Mr. Linky below).

3. Email me if you would like to post the MHLRC button on your blog or website. (libraryhospital AT gmail DOT com).

4. Return throughout the month to learn more about the opportunities to win either Emily of Deep Valley or Carney's House Party/Winona's Pony Cart thanks to the generosity of HarperCollins Publishers who have offered to mail complimentary copies to the winning participants in this challenge. The other give-aways will include Betsy-Tacy themed totes and other Maud Hart Lovelace related gifts. Check back each Sunday during the month of October to see what is being given-away and how to enter for a chance to win.

5. Visit around the blogs of other MHLRC participants. It's a great opportunity to get to know fellow bibliophiles and find out what books they love.

6. Come back on Sunday, October 31, 2010 and link up your final Maud Hart Lovelace related posts/reviews or reading challenge wrap-up.
I am signing up for this wonderful reading challenge. Before Sarah hosted it last year I had never heard of this author. I read the first four books in the Betsy Tacy series last year and my goal is to finish the series or at least the next two books. This is a really cute series. :)

What fun! I had never heard of this author until Emily of Deep Valley showed up on the CFBA reading list for November. Looking forward to your reviews!
