Benedictionary is hosting The Tudor Book Challenge.
From January 1st, 2010 to December 31st, 2010 The Tudor Book Challenge challenges you to read books about or inspired by the Tudor era of the English monarchy.
The Challenge Rules:
•You may read your books in any format – e-books, audio books, electronic reader books, and printed books are acceptable.
•You are welcome to use the books you read for the Tudor Book Challenge in other challenges (where applicable).
•Books can be fiction or non-fiction, but they must be about or inspired by Tudor England. If you do not know much about the Tudor dynasty, that’s okay. That’s part of what this challenge is about. If you’re lost, try the Tudor Book Resource for some Tudor book suggestions. You can find even more Tudor book suggestions here.
•You are not required to post a list of the books you intend to read. You may choose them as you go.
•Bloggers and non-bloggers alike are welcome to participate in the challenge. If you do not have a blog, you will need to review the books you’ve read on some book-related website: i.e. GoodReads, Amazon, Borders, etc. and send in the links (via comments) to be eligible for the prizes. I need to be able to verify that these books were read by you.
The Challenge Levels:
King or Queen – You are the ruler of your dominion. You will read at least 11 Tudor-related books.
