1. Only titles published before the year 2000 count. So that means only the first three Harry Potter novels would qualify for this challenge.
2. The challenge focuses mainly on novels but you can choose picture books or collections of short stories or non-fiction, if you desire.
3. Challenge runs from 31st of January to the 31st of December 2013 and you can sign up at any time.
4. You don't need a blog to participate, you can just sign up and for each book read just leave a comment on the monthly post for the challenge or you could link to your goodreads page, facebook, twitter, whatever you can think of.
5. Choose a level.
6. Write an introduction post with the badge and a link back here. Maybe outline some of the titles you plan to read.
7. Any format counts, including e-books and audio books, re-reads count as do double ups with other challenges.
Gumnut baby - four books. (The gumnut babies are the most famous characters by Australian children's author illustrator May Gibbs.)
Alice - six books - you are entering into the wonderland of childhood.
Mary Poppins - ten books - you have a serious interest in the world of the young.
Peter Pan - twelve books or more - you clearly are still in touch with your inner child.
This is my favourite type of children's literature! As a child the books I loved most were The Secret Garden, Anne of Green Gables, Little Women and What Katy Did. I'm moving house soon, so all my old classics will soon be rescued from the loft, and I can't wait to re-read them all! As I've already reviewed 4 at the time of writing this, I'm going to aim for Peter Pan level - here goes!
