Yes, there will be draws every month for participants. As long as you are signed up below, every review you add to the monthly roundups will get one entry into the giveaway for that month.

There will also be a grand giveaway at the end of the year for eveyone who achieves their goal level (or higher). There may be different prizes for different levels, but that is not decided yet.

The 2012 Paranormal Romance Challenge is being hosted by Laurie at Bitten By Paranormal Romance.
The Rules of the challenge are as follows:
This years challenge is going to be a little different. You have to read 20 paranormal romance novels and add a small review or long if you like LOL.
I will allow erotic paranormal romance but again they have to be novels.
novellas will not be allow nor will urban fantasy. If you want to make sure it’s not UF please ask or you can visit these post below to find out how to tell the difference for yourself.
The other change will be I am only giving away autographed books to people who finishes their challenge.
You can make one post on your blog for your reviews and once your done with all 20 books come back here to link you post or you can email me you post.
If you don’t have a blog you can still enter. Just email me your reviews once your done or if you have a goodreads, shelfari etc account you can make a shelf just for your 2012 paranormal romance challenge. Once your done email me your challenge shelf and I will look them over.
Once you read 20 books your done you can not enter for another turn.
At this time I have 12 autographs books but I can always get more if needed.
Once your finished and I look over your books or post I will tell you to pick out which book you want. So first finishes first serves LOL.
I have the buttons on my left side bar so please grab which one you want.
If you need any help or I didn’t make something clear please let me know.
You can sign up now but the count wont start until Jan 1, 2012.
I will have the post with all the autographed book up on Jan 1, 2012
I think that’s everything but I am sure I missed something if so give me a yell.

                     2012 War Through The Generations Reading Challenge: WWI-The Great War

War Through the Generation’s 2012 reading challenge will be World War I. The challenge will run from January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012.

This year you have options when reading your fiction, nonfiction, graphic novels, etc. with the WWI as the primary or secondary theme.

Books can take place before, during, or after the war, so long as the conflicts that led to the war or the war itself are important to the story. Books from other challenges count so long as they meet the above criteria.

Dip: Read 1-3 books in any genre with WWI as a primary or secondary theme.

Wade: Read 4-10 books in any genre with WWI as a primary or secondary theme.

Swim: Read 11 or more books in any genre with WWI as a primary or secondary theme.

Additionally, we’ve decided that since there are so many great movies out there about WWI, you can substitute or add a movie or two to your list this year and have it count toward your totals.

Welcome to the Stephanie Plum Reading Challenge hosted byDarlene’s Book Nook!

There are so many books in this series that I have decided to make this a Perpetual Reading Challenge, which means that there is no ending date! Take as much time as you need to finish the series. I have always wanted to read this series, especially now more than ever since the first novel is the basis for a major motion picture starring Katherine Heigl opening in theatres on January 27, 2012! Since I could not find anyone else hosting this challenge, I thought I would give it a whirl!

The books in the Stephanie Plum series (including the Stephanie Plum Between the Numbers/Holiday Novels series) by Janet Evanovich are (this is the order in which the books are written):
