Sign-Up for the LOST Books Challenge!


Welcome to sign-ups for Round Two of the LOST Books Challenge. Some things have been changed since last time, so here's the scoop:

1) Round two of the LOST books challenge will launch Wednesday January 21st and continue until the series finale in 2010. Participants can join at any time.

2) Participants are asked to choose at least five books off the list of books alluded to or mentioned on the show to complete by the time the series concludes in 2010. If participants did not complete the first challenge, they can use those same books again. Find books here, here, or here.

3) The LOST books challenge will have its own blog. Participants can cross post their reviews directly onto the blog. But to add to the fun, participants can post about anything related to LOST (except for spoilers)...recaps of the episodes, theories, etc. It will be sort of a fun place for book blogging Losties.

4) I promise to try to keep it fresh and interesting with mini-challenges and contests.

5) To sign up, write a post with the books you intend to read and link back to this sign-up post to invite others along for the fun. Then come and drop the permalink to your post in the Mister Linky.

6) If you want to post to this blog, send me an email at lostbookschallengeATgmailDOTcom If you just want me to post a link to your review with a short excerpt, send the link to lostbookschallengeATgmailDOTcom

Anyone who signs up by January 30th, 2009, will be eligible for a drawing for season 3 of LOST on DVD.

  7. I am really excited for this challenge (my first online reading challenge ever)! The browser was acting funny, so I may have entered twice. Sorry if I did.

  13. Q: I'm doing a couple of reading challenges at one time. Do you think it's cheating if a book counts for this challenge as well as another?

  14. Juju - That is not a problem! We don't have any rules about books counting for more than one challenge. :)
