New York Challenge

I read about Fizzy Thought's New York Challenge through a young blog, Books in the City. Fizzy Thoughts came up with the New York Challenge in part because she's excited for the upcoming BEA and the Book Blogger Convention that are both coming up this May 2010.

Here are the rules of the New York Challenge, as set forth by Fizzy Thoughts:

1. The challenge runs from February 1st through May 15th, 2010.

2. Between now and May 15th, read 1 (one) book set in New York City and post your review. The book can be non-fiction or fiction, poetry or prose, graphic novel or audio book…whatever floats your boat. It can even be a guidebook. It just has to have New York City as its primary setting. And no fair using a book you’ve already read.

3. Here's the link to the separate post with a Mr Linky for everyone to post their reviews. Head over there to sign up!

4. Each month I will also post a sort of mini-challenge asking people to write a post about New York. You do not have to participate in any of these, the goal is to have a fun collection of posts by the time BEA arrives. Each mini-challenge will have a New York themed prize for one of the participants. Here's the link to Fizzy Thoughts's February mini-challenge.

Books in the City, as part of the February Mini-Challenge, recently shared her list of the top places to read in NYC . Thanks to her list, I have a few more places to explore! Check it out!

And if you haven't signed up for BEA or the Book Blogger Convention, do consider participating. It'll be fun - it can be as hectic or relaxed as you wish. Registration for the Book Blogger Convention is ongoing and ends on April 30, 2010. The $115 is fully refundable, if you find that you have to cancel. Use this link to reserve your place for the Book Blogger Convention. You'll automatically be registered for the BEA when you sign up for the convention.
