2013 TBR Pile Reading Challenge

Put on By Doodle's Book Blog
Welcome to the 2013 TRB Pile Reading Challenge!!

6 Bloggers, 12 Mini-Challenges, 24 Books to Win!!!

We all have those books. We buy them, win them, they're gifted to us.. Then we put them up on a bookshelf and there they stay, collecting dust, waiting for the time when we'll finally decide to pick them up..

Join us on a quest to dust off your TBR Pile and read all the books you've been telling yourself you'll read next time you'll get a chance.. This is your chance! And we've got PRIZES!!! :D

Challenge Guidelines:
     1. This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2013 - Dec 31, 2013.
     2. Anyone can enter! You don't have to be a blogger, as long as you review the book you've read! 
         (On your blog, Amazon or Goodreads/Shelfari!)
     3. Any genre, length or format of book counts, as long as it is a book that's been sitting on your shelf for some 
         time now. Only books released in 2012 and earlier! NO  2013 ARCs and 2013 fresh-off-the-press releases 
     4. You can list your books in advance or just put them in a wrap-up post. If you list them, feel free to change them 
         as the mood takes you.
     5. When you sign up in the linky, put the direct link to your post about joining the 2013 TBR PILE Reading 
     6. You can move up levels, but no moving down.
     7. Sign-ups will be open until Dec 15, 2013, so feel free to join at any time throughout the year.
     8. On the 20th of each month one of the hosts will post a wrap-up. Every wrap-up will have it's unique theme
         a mini-challenge, a giveaway and place for you to link up your reviews from this monthFor each review 
         you link up, you will get one entry in a drawing of one book of choice from Book Depository. It's open to
         INTERNATIONALS. The giveaway will be open until the next wrap up post goes up! (i.e. the entire month)
     9. If you miss a wrap-up post + giveaway, you can link up your reviews next month. Do not, however, try to link up
         one review twice - we will be checking ;) 
     10. December is a wrap-up for the whole year. All the book reviews you linked up January-November + the ones
