Erotic Reading Challenge 2012

The Forbidden Bookshelf is excited to announce that it will be hosting their second annual erotic reading challenge for 2012! The only difference is they're upping the erotic factor to BDSM, kink, and taboo genres.

The challenge comes complete with a fun incentive and multiple challenge levels that should appeal to newbies of the genre, and those of us who've been around the block! Don't act shy, you know who you are! :)

Challenge Rules:

  • You can start the challenge anytime during the year.
  • As you read, keep a list of the book titles and their author. Stop by The Forbidden Bookshelf and click on the "Challenge" page at the top of the blog. Leave a comment with your list of completed books, and your name and email addy.

  • You don't have to be a blogger to participate! Bloggers who are keeping a challenge post and want to link to it, may do so by adding your website/blog link in the comment(s) you leave on the challenge page. 

I have signed up for the 50+ level!

Update as of July 8, 2012 - I have read 44 books so far towards my goal of 50+ books read. I think I am well on my way to becoming a book slut for 2012.
