Taking Part in the 2015 Summer Reading Classic Film Book Challenge!

As you might be able to guess from the title I have decided to be completely crazy and try to take on the 2015 Summer Reading Classic Film Book Challenge hosted by Raquel over at Out Of The Past!  Here is the lowdown:

Here are the details:

Runs June 1st to September 1st, 2015
Open internationally!
Sign up for the challenge here.
Read a classic film book
Write a review and post it on your BLOG or Goodreads profile
Submit your review link here.
Repeat until you have read and reviewed 6 books!
Review 6 and be automatically entered to win a prize.

Go to the official summer reading page for full details including rules, entry forms, prize details, a challenge button and more.

Six books in three months. It’s not as difficult as it sounds! Aim for reading two books each month. Don’t procrastinate! Keep the two books a month pace or you’ll fall behind. You can do it. If you need some help, check out my 10 tips for getting in more classic film reading.

If you want to read fewer than six books, that’s okay too! Just set a goal that works for you. You can start reading and reviewing at any time, just make sure your reviews are up by September 1st.

If you do complete six books in the time frame given, you’ll be eligible for a prize! I’ll randomly select one person to receive the following prize pack:

A copy of Leonard Maltin’s Classic Movie Guide: From the Silent Era through 1965 3rd Edition, revised by Leonard Maltin and presented by Turner Classic Movies
Robert Osborne and Ben Mankiewicz Fan Club pins from Your Fan Club by Kate Gabrielle
TCM pen purchased from the 2015 TCMFF gift shop
Depending on the number of challenge finishers, I’ll plan on a runner-up prize too. Note the Maltin guide doesn’t come out until late September so the prize won’t ship until October.

Again, all the details about the challenge are on the dedicated page which can be accessed at the header of this blog. Good luck to all participants!

So, if you like reading and if you like classic films join me in this challenge!  It will certainly be a lot of fun!  And be sure to keep an eye out for upcoming BOOK REVIEWS!

    I’ve always wanted to take part in Raquel’s reading challenge and I think this year may be the year I finally participate! Bring it! x

    PS: What books are on your challenge reading list? Once I get home I’m gonna pull six from my shelves.

      I have no idea! I have so many to choose from! But I think I’ll start with A TOUCH OF STARDUST and then try CHARLIE CHAN by Yunte Huang…what about you? 🙂
