Hi Hogwarts Reading Challenge 2011 is now up and running until June 30th. This is the last Hogwarts Challenge for me as such it will be more involved and hopefully more fun. Click Mini Challenges for dates and info. I am not announcing any prizes other than the $15 gift card to a random winner for participating in the main challenge with the 5 book minimum met. However, there will be a drawing for a prize for all those who are able to accumulate 450 plus points and well as participate in all the mini challenges as well as read 7 books from one series (in honor of the 7 HP books). This final challenge is called the Triwizard Tournament. All prizes will be given out any time after the mini challenge or right the main challenge but if you win you will get your prize.
*A series is when the main character is the same in all subsequent books. Ex: Eve Dallas in the Death in…, James Patterson Alex Cross books. When in doubt, ask me. Have fun and Happy Reading
