Challenge period: 1st January to 31st December, 2015
Sign up: before 31st March, 2015

The aim of this challenge is to encourage bloggers to read more classics. Reading and posting a review for a minimum of six books will get you an entry into the prize draw for a $30.00 gift from Amazon or The Book Depository. Reading and reviewing more books will get you more entries into the prize draw. More details and how to sign up can be found here. If you want to participate, sign up before 31st March 2015.

There are 12 categories, but you don't have to do them all. You can select which ones appeal to you and still qualify for the draw. If you complete six categories, you get one entry; complete nine categories, you get two entries and if you complete all twelve categories, you get three entries!
