Happy New Year!! And to celebrate there is a Black Stallion Reading Challenge – with Prizes!!!
“I was so obsessed with them that I would ofter pretend I had my own horse and I would ride him everywhere. That’s right…I didn’t have an imaginary friend…I had an imaginary horse!
I decided I would like to recreate those good old days by doing a reread of The Black Stallion series, and I also decided I wanted to spread that joy I felt when I was younger around to as many others as I could….(I’m even trying to get my teenage son to read along!)
Hence, the 2012 Black Stallion Reading Challenge was born!
I don’t expect everyone to be able to get through the entire series, so I have broken the challenge down into levels:
The books should be read between January 1st and December 31st 2012. My goal is to read at least one a month, so I will be posting a wrap-up post at the end of every month and I welcome you to post your updates in the comments and let us know where you stand.
Prizes will be based on levels (amount of books) read. Please be honest!
RandomHouse Canada has graciously agreed to offer up some wonderful prizes including books and RandomHouse swag such as mugs, pens, bookmarks, etc. More details about exactly what prizes are available and how the system works will be added later. My goal is to get at least a bookmark or pen to every person who reads at least one of these fabulous novels in 2012. Right now let’s get everyone signed up! Leave a comment below and let everyone know you are participating!
I have created a Goodreads Group for people interested in participating in the challenge. You don’t have to have a blog, just a Goodreads account! So please join up and answer the poll stating how many of the books you think you are going to read. If you have a blog I would appreciate you using the image and code below to show your support, and make sure to tell all your friends!
