James Patterson Reading Challenge

Yvonne is hosting this fantastic challenge on her blog Socrates' Book Reviews! Oh, how I heart James Patterson!

Here are the guidelines...

1. The challenge is to read at least 10 James Patterson books in a year. You do not need to make a list of what you will read now or, if you want, you can. However, nothing is written in stone and the books you list can be changed at any time. Overlapping books with other challenges is allowed.

2. As long as it's written by James Patterson, you can use the book in this challenge. Even if you are part of my Women's Murder Club challenge, you can overlap books and count them as part of this challenge.

3. All books need to be read between August 15, 2009 and August 15, 2010. Books read prior to August 15th don't count for this challenge.

4. If you want to participate, just post about it on your blog with a link back to here.

3. Audio and Ebooks are acceptable.

4. Please use Mr. Linky below to sign up. Use the link to your post about this challenge, not your main blog address. Links that don't go directly to your challenge post will be deleted.

5. Once you complete the challenge, please post the link to your wrap-up blog post with Mr. Linky (I will put up a Mr. Linky for completed lists.)

6. There will also be a Mr. Linky for reviews, although posting your reviews are not a requirement.

7. You can take the button above and post it on your blog.

And for those of you "concerned" about my # of challenges, most of my challenges end in December, giving me ample time to complete these few that are left. :) Yay for a JP reading challenge! Thanks, Yvonne!

Reading List:
1. Along Came a Spider by James Patterson (Oct/Nov 2009)

  1. I wonder if there are enough Patterson books left for me to make it to ten - I've read so many. LOL. Thanks for the post, I'm going to think about this. I do have the 8th Confession and Run for your Life on my shelf.

  2. I have a love/hate affair w/ Jim. Will join in. Thanks, Rebecca : ).

  3. I think I've read most of his books. Of course, if you wait a few weeks, he'll come out with more. Good luck with the challenge.

  4. Welcome to the JP challenge! I hope you have fun with this! Enjoy!

  5. I am so joining this one too! Looking forward to seeing what he publishes between now and the time the challenge ends...gonna be fun!

  6. I'm not worried about all of your challenges because I know you can breeze through a Patterson book in one day!! Have fun! I only read the Alex Cross him!

  7. Well, I already have a James Patterson book in my TBR pile since you recommended him. :) But I'm not sure I should commit to reading 10 books by him if I haven't read any of his books yet....

  8. I just adore James Patterson's quick-read novels. I love the Women's Murder Club, but Alex Cross novels are my favorites.
