2012 Challenges Summary: BA’s Off the Shelf Reading Challenge

To hail to the new year, albeit belatedly, I’m sharing all the links you’ve shared during BA’s 2012 reading challenges. Today it is all about the Off the Shelf reading challenge aimed at turning those unread books on your shelves into read ones. See who signed up, discover what everyone was reading, and learn about their reading year.

Please be aware that there are quite a few links in this post (heaps in this one and I apologise for it going off the page, but there isn’t any way to fix it), but I’ve broken up the links into three sections – Participants, Your Reviews, and Your Experiences – in order to make it more user friendly.

2012 Challenges Summary: BA’s Get Steampunk’d & Go Indie Reading Challenges

Just Interrupting: It’s my birthday today! I’m 30 now… I’m getting old, oh jeez! So I wanted to wish everyone else with a birthday today a happy one, a happy birthday to all the February babies, and a happy unbirthday to everyone else. Basically, have a great day everyone.

Now, carry on…

To hail to the new year, albeit belatedly, I’m sharing all the links you’ve shared during BA’s 2012 reading challenges.The Get Steampunk’d and Go Indie challenges are on the smaller side compared to the other ones and have less links as a result so I’m combining them.

Today it is all about the Get Steampunk’d reading challenge aimed at surrounding yourself with the imagination of a steam-powered world. The Go Indie challenge aimed at broadening your horizons by not sticking to traditionally published books or books sold via the big publishing houses. Small printing presses, independant presses, and self-pubbed is the go. See who signed up, discover what everyone was reading, and learn about their reading year.

I’ve broken up the links into three sections – Participants, Your Reviews, and Your Experiences – in order to make it more user friendly. Continue reading

I will try and get this out before my brain decides to completely shut down (that was a lot of brain work for some reason)….

In order to make way for 2013 challenges, I have put sign-ups, reviews, and wrap-ups in their own posts. I have been posting them all day long. I know they aren’t closed yet, we still have some 2012 to go, so in order to find everything easily I have linked it all up like crazy.
