2013 eBook Challenge

The 2013 Ebook Challenge. Encouraging readers to expand past just physical books to embrace eBooks in all forms, whether on Kindle, Kobo, computer, or any other reader.

Challenge Guidelines:
  1. This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2013 – Dec 31, 2013.
  2. 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).
  3. Any genre or length of book counts, as long as it is in eBook format.
  4. You can plan your books in advance or as you read them.
  5. When you sign up in the Linky, put the direct link to your post about joining the E-Book Reading Challenge.
  6. You can move up levels, but no moving down.
  7. Sign-ups will be open until Dec 15, 2013, so feel free to join at any time throughout the year.
Levels:
  1. Floppy disk – 5 ebooks
  2. CD – 10 ebooks
  3. DVD – 25 ebooks
  4. Memory stick – 50 ebooks
  5. Hard drive – 75 ebooks
  6. Server – 100 ebooks
  7. Human brain – 150 ebooks

I joined this challenge in 2012 and then didn't post one single book. Bad, Freda! I won't do that this year. I will post each eBook I read and review, and hope you'll join in if you read eBooks too.

LEVEL: CD

That's what my aim will be. As stated in the rules above, you can go up but you can't go down, so if I read more than 10, I'll move on up like the Jefferson's.
Good luck to all the challenge participants! Happy eReading!
