    I would be happy to join this challenge; however, I'm rather new to the blogging world and book blogging community. I have no idea what Mr. Linky is and how exactly challenges work (from what I've gathered, bloggers agree to participate in the challenge, read a certain number of books, and review them for their blog..), 

  3. Go to the challenge link provided and it should tell you exactly what to do. Usually you write a blog post about you joining the challenge. There will be a form for the Mr. Linky on the challenge page that I linked to and you just put in your name and blog post URL and hit enter and that's it!


Thank you for visiting! Leave a comment and share your thoughts with me!
