Together with Kimberly @ The Windy Pages we will be helping you clean up those ARCs. The challenge begins on May 1 and ends on the 31st. 

The goal: to read and review as many ARC's as we can. We will have fun challenges each Saturday hosted by some wonderful bloggers and a prize for two luck participants at the end of the challenge. So gather your ARCs and your brooms and lets have some fun!

  • Challenges will be hosted each Saturday with a change to win additional prize

Kim can the last two entries in the Rafflecopter be the one and the same post?

Kim I thought that each challenge was open for the whole weekend?

It's ok Kristin and thanks for the fantastic challenge, so far I've participated in 3/4 so I'm doing well in the challenges section but not so great in the actual reading :(

I think there's something not quite right with the rafflecopter, it isn't allowing 2 reviews per day, it's only allowing 2 reviews in total!

actually it won't let me do that as it will only allow you to log in with facebook now!

I know I'm being a pain but the rafflecopter is still saying 'do this again tomorrow' when it's more than 24 hours since I put in the first review. I think it's probably because I entered them before you changed it to being able to do it everyday.

Is it okay if I log in with a different email in put in my reviews to solve the problem? I have 2 reviews to put in as I couldn't put any in yesterday.

Here's my post with my ridiculous challenge. I have two from March, two from April and two from July - the rest are all June! You definitely better keep that promise about hellhounds, woman! Today's going to be a non-reading day so I'm already sort of off track, aaaah.

I have a couple questions if it's all right :D I started a book one of the last days of April and finished it after the challenge started, counts or no? Also I DNFed a review book next, counts or no? I completely understand if neither do, I'm just excited to get started, haha

Oh no, rafflecopter question, I can't remember if I submitted a certain review yet and don't want to double enter it D: Is there a way for me to see what entries I've submitted already so I can check? Recent Activity seems to be on the blink

Just realized I could count the number of book reviews submitted by the number of entries, I'm all good now :3

I am an idiot.... I can't work a rafflecopter to save my soul... user error!!! Sorry!!!

Thank you! :) And it still shows every time I get here as "do this again tomorrow" even though I haven't entered the new ones. Maybe it's my browser....Eh, don't care, having fun knocking them off my list! This is awesome; thanks for hosting this challenge!

It allows daily link for books finished. You have to wait 24 hrs in between. My goodness you are doing an awesome job!

Hmmm, the rafflecopter won't let me link daily. It only took the first two links I posted. Did I mess up somehow? Eh, doesn't matter. I'm having fun and apparently needed to be held accountable to be knocking these books off my list! :D I'm at 8 completed and halfway through #9! :D
