Shelf Discovery Challenge Wrap-Up's that time -- the end of the Shelf Discovery Challenge. I'm not the best person for completing challenges, but I'm happy to say that I did finish my own! The minimum required amount was six books, and I read twelve. Here's my list:

ARE YOU THERE GOD? IT'S ME, MARGARET by Judy Blume - review
THE CAT ATE MY GYMSUIT by Paula Danziger- review
FIFTEEN by Beverly Cleary - review
DEENIE by Judy Blume - review
BLUBBER by Judy Blume - review
IT'S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD by Judy Blume - review
THEN AGAIN, MAYBE I WON'T by Judy Blume - review
TIGER EYES by Judy Blume - review
FOREVER by Judy Blume - review
THE WESTING GAME by Ellen Rankin - review

I don't know about those of you who participated in this challenge, but I thought this was extremely fun! It definitely brought back a lot of childhood memories. However, I feel like there are still so many books from SHELF DISCOVERY that I didn't get around to reading. I have a big box in my basement with about 20 more books that I have collected over the past six months that I still want to read. So...I have decided that I will be starting a SHELF DISCOVERY 2 Challenge come fall (probably September!) I am hoping that many of you will want to "play" again, and I'm also hoping that I will also attract some new participants.

In the meantime, I have another fun challenge which is officially starting tomorrow. It's the 2010 EW Summer Book Reading Challenge. You can read about the details here. It's a fun, no-pressure challenge (perfect for summer reading) and the books look terrific. I'm hoping you'll consider joining. You only have to sign-up for 1 book -- how easy is that?

Just a little reminder: I have a post where you can link to your Shelf Discovery Challenge wrap-up. You can add your link anytime, but please try to do so by May 15th because I will be selecting the winners the following day!

I acquired all 6 books then read none of them *sobs*. On the plus side, I'll already have them to try again in the fall!
