3Rs Challenge

One of the things I love about book blogs is discovering books other bloggers love. And that’s what the 3Rs Challenge is all about.
Here’s how the 3 hosting bloggers describe it:
The Three R’s is a collaboration of the minds of Cheryl from CMash Loves to Read, Julie from Reading with Restraint, and Gina from Hott Books. The ideas, the creativity, and the technology – respectively. We’re each putting forth what we can do to spring this to life.

It all started because Cheryl wanted to remember the bloggers who write the reviews that begin our journey to a new book, new series, or new author. Every day each of us reads the reviews of others shaping our TBR lists. Then we occasionally remember to note them in our post but, more often than not, we completely forget about the reviews that brought us to the wonderful book we’ve just read.

So this challenge is for them!

We’d like to link our reviews that mention the blogger that suggested the book we’ve read and are now reviewing.

How thankful are you?

  • 1-6 Books (~1 review every 2 months)
  • 7-12 Books (~1 reviews every month)
  • 13-24 Books (~ 2 reviews every month)
Rules:
We’re not making this a difficult challenge, actually, it’s going to be very simple!
  1. This challenge will begin on January 1, 2011 and end on December 31, 2011.
  2. Write a starting post stating how thankful you plan to be in the upcoming year and link it to the linky we’ll have on the starting post.
  3. Read a book recommended to you by another blogger. (This book can be a crossover from another challenge.)
  4. Review the book & Recognize the blogger who recommended it to you.
  5. Recommend the Book in our Recommend linky by linking your review post naming the blogger who recommended the book to you.
Easy, right? Who wants to be in on the fun?
I’m going to participate at the “1-6 Books” level. I’m very excited about the books I’ll find in 2011 by reading others’ blogs, and I look forward to crediting them for their great recommendations.
1. The Best of Everything by Rona Jaffe (recommended by Bybee of Naked Without Books!)
2. The Nobodies Album by Carolyn Parkhurst (recommended by Gary of Book Group Buzz)

One thought on “3Rs Challenge

  1. Hi:
    I'm so glad you will be joining us in The 3 Rs Challenge. Not only do we hope to give bloggers the recognition they deserve for writing the great reviews that make us add books to our ever growing tbr lists, we also hope to discuss books we have read, have some laughs, form new friendships (that's how Julie, Gina and I met) have some fun giveaways…kind of like one big book club block party…so stop by often, leave comments, let us know what fantastic reviews you have found or just even to say hi. Look forward to getting to know you. Thanks a bunch for signing up.
