Welcome to "Laurie Here - Contemporary Fiction and MORE - Book Reviews"! Join me and let's escape life into the wonderful world of books getting lost between the covers where the lives of the characters live and their amazing stories take place for a little while! Let's learn about the authors, too! I write "honest" book reviews about my experiences and tell you how the trip was! You may want to follow along with me, too! Leave a comment while you're here, too!
These directions are COPIED AND PASTED from the above Sponsor!
Here are they are:
The 2013 Self-Published Reading Challenge. Encouraging readers to look beyond the traditional, and experience pure imagination.
This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2013 – Dec 31, 2013.
Anyone can join, you don’t need to be a blogger. If you don’t have a blog, feel free to sign-up in the comments. You can post reviews to any book site (i.e. Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, Goodreads, etc).
Any genre, length or format of book counts, as long as it is self-published by the author.
You can plan your books in advance or as you read them.

Since we can "UP" this Challenge at any time through the year, I'm going to play it safe and Challenge myself to an easy one of 25 Self-Published books - which I KNOW I WILL exceed! Like I said, I can change it at any time, so . . . this DECLARES i AM GOING TO DO #3: A PAGE! (Even though undoubtedly I'll end up doing a Chapter! I'll just come back and change it!)
You can go over to my Challenges 2013 page at the TAB up above and see the books listed under this Reading Challenge! The book will have the LINK attached to it. I usually read about 50/50 - 50% Published and 50% Self-Published. Who knows? It might even be higher! We'll see how the year goes!
