I've joined a new reading challenge. It's the Harry Potter Reading Challenge! Yayyy!
This is actually kind of perfect for me because I'm a newbie when it comes to Harry. I've never read any of the books and I've only seen the first four films (the 3rd and the 4th I seem to mix up all the time!). One of my personal goals for this year was to read 50 books - That list must include one of the Harry Potter books, so now thanks to this reading challenge, I have an excuse and something to spur me on. :-D
I hate fads which is why I have avoided Mr Potter until this point, but now I'm starting to feel a little left out and feel as though I need a touch of magic in my reading.
This challenge is being hosted by Michelle at GalleySmith, and all you need to do to take part is read or listen to the seven Potter books between 1st August, 2009 and 31st July 2010.
Further details and where to sign your name up are here. Then make a bloggy post about it and link up to the August HPRC here. It's as simple as can be! (Though you don't even need a blog to take part.)
Thank you to Amanda from The Zen Leaf for mentioning this in her blog - otherwise I wouldn't have heard about it. :-D
