Vampires, angels, demons, werewolves and fae. If you can’t pick a favourite, then that’s okay!

At UTC, we love them all! So let’s celebrate our love for all things immortal with 2013’s Immortal Reading Challenge.

Here’s the rundown:
1. The Immortals Reading Challenge runs from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013. You can join at anytime from now and throughout the year. This is a 2013 challenge, so books read before January 1 will not count to your progress.
2. You pick your goal! Read as many books as you’d like for each species. This means that you can do just one category or all five or a combination of. The choice depends on you and your reading pace.
*We have chosen to have a three book per species standard. However, if this is a breeze for you, then feel free to tackle on the additional bonus entries of two more books of the same level.
3. Re-reads are acceptable.
4. Books chosen can be of any genre.
5. To participate, copy and paste this post on your blog along with the challenge button. We ask that you provide a link back to the sign-up page in case others wish to participate.
6. Readers without blogs can still participate! Keep track of your progress with Goodreads, Shelfari or LibraryThing.

To sign up:

1.  Make a sign up post announcement, listing the level you’ve chosen and a list of books you plan to read.  If you don’t have a blog, post on GoodReads or another site as a thread where we can access your list of books.  Be sure to take the image code above.

2.  Come back here and using the list below, add your entry with a link directly to that post so we can see what you’ll be reading.

You’re done!  Every month during 2013 we will make a challenge update post where you can come and updates us on how you’re doing with your challenge.

    Let the reading commence!!!

  13. Kimberly B

    If I want to sign up do I only need to put my list on Goodreads? Or do I also sign up through this blog?

  14. Are you guys doing update post each month for this challenge like you did last year? Cause I haven’t seen any, but then again I haven’t updated my list on my own blog either.
    That is my project to do within the week.

  15. If you spent a lot of companies are there to showcase false claims.
    Whereas the traditional story has a beginning, a middle and an end, the serial.
    However, youneed to make sure your have your title
    finished including using key words within the title.

    Here is my web blog … Ims Media Marketing

  16. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is important and
    all. However imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video
    clips, this site could certainly be one of the very best in its field.
    Amazing blog!

  19. I used to be suggested this web site by way of my cousin. I am no longer positive whether or not
    this publish is written through him as nobody else realize such
    precise about my problem. You’re incredible! Thanks!

    With this attachment, you can sanitize not only carpets
    but also rugs and other fabric surfaces. Cleaning floors is made increasingly the more quicker with
    a steam mop, if you have to have a new mop consider these.
    So if your main requirement of a steam mop is for it’s sanitizing purposes,
    you will definitely want to look into the Monster Steam Mop a little more.

  21. For many the allure of France is not the weather or the cost of living, or even the spectacular view.
    The king forbade spinning on distaff or spindle, or the possession of one, upon pain of death, throughout the kingdom, but all
    in vain. zenas and links two limestone plateaus: the Causse du Larzac
    and the Causse Rouge.

  22. Grab your subscription and download gossip girl episodes.

    A do-it-yourself job will more than likely result in a helter-skelter mess within the sink, a mix
    of dismantled pipes and also the water that. The factor with watching movies around the world wide web is basically that
    you either uncover clips and parts that cut out within the middle or perhaps the movies one
    does come across are terrible top quality and are
    practically unwatchable.
