2012 Harry Potter Reading Challenge

A little late signing up for this one, but I saw it and thought it's definitely one for me! I only reread the first 3 books of the Harry Potter series last year, so here's to rereading all 7 this year. I especially love the idea of reading them one a month in time for September and Potter Con 2012, which I will surely have to attend!! That, and the other Extra Credit ideas Penelope of The Reading Fever has come up with - like discussions and watching the movies! This one is definitely going to be fun!

The challenge:

Read all seven books in the Harry Potter series during 2012.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

  • The challenge will run from January 1st, 2012, to December 31st, 2012. Books read before or after this time frame do not count. You can join anytime until the challenge ends.
  • Books can be in any format: Print, ebook, audiobook, etc..
  • You do not have to review the books to participate, although you are more than welcome to. If you choose not to review, you can also do the following and still be eligible for prizes:
    • Answer the discussion questions each month
    • Create a post talking about each book after you finish (any topic)
    • Just update your kickoff post after each book
    • Those without blogs can leave a comment with their thoughts/review/review link.
    • Because this is open to those who have already read HP, old reviews will be accepted. Whether you have read the books within the challenge time frame is on the honor system, so please be honest!
  • Be sure to leave the relevant links in each linky to be entered into the drawings for prizes (more on that below).
Sign Up:

To enter the challenge, make a kickoff post on your blog, include the challenge button, and link it back to this post over at The Reading Fever. Then sign up using the linky in the same post.
