Looking for a fun way to whittle down the books on your TBR (To Be Read) List? Jump on over to The 9 For ‘09 Challenge and pick a book for each of the 9 categories to finish and review this year. I know, I know… the year is half over, but there’s no crying in blogging and you know you’ll feel so much better getting just a few of those books crossed off your list. Plus, Isabel put together a great site to make it so much fun. And I hardly need mention…but do I send you anywhere without prizes?
Ooh and just in case you are curious as to my picks and want to follow my progress, you can check out My List at Adventures in Thought.
Bloggiesta is the brainchild of Natasha over at the Maw Books Blog. It’s a chance to spend the weekend catching up on your blog. Tidying up loose ends, get ahead on posts, participate in hosted mini-challenges and learn some great blogging tips along the way. And would I forget to mention….prizes!
Best of all it’s not too late to start! Although officially it runs from 8am Friday the 19th through 8am Sunday the 21st. You can still jump in and get plenty of blogging done. I’m getting in with a slow start myself!
Just run over to Maw Books and get yourself setup.
