Getting Started

Okay, it's almost time for us to get started. So, here are the basic rules we have so far.
1) This is for books you have read in 2011. Not books you read last year, the book you read in 3rd grade, the book your mom read to you in preschool, none of those. But, I will allow books you started in 2010 but finished in 2011.
2) You need to list the title, the author, and number of pages. Then a sentence or two (or more if the spirit moves you) about the book. Did you like it, did you hate it, what was it about, is it worth reading or should the author be taken out back and beaten til they agree to step away from the typewriter.
3) Read another book.
4) Wait to see if you are a winner.
For January we are going to keep it simple. Everyone will get an entered into one drawing if they read at least one book. There will be additional contests for most pages read, most books read, or maybe highest page average. I won't tell you ahead of time because I don't want people reading to win specifically. You never know what will win the contest, BWAHAHAHA (evil laugh if you didn't catch that).
You will have to create an account to use this blog, but you will then be able to access it from work or from home.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I hope everyone has lots of fun with this. Now, get reading.
