Rules for reference
Hosted by Books & Other Thoughts
1. Read 8 books between now and Labor Day that you were inspired to read after reading a fellow book-blogger's review. Ideally the books will be ones you'd never heard of or would probably not have considered reading had it not been for the review. If you expanded your horizons or went beyond your usual reading comfort zone because of the review, all the better!
2. Write a review of the book on your blog.
3. (The most important step) Make sure you link to the review that inspired you to read the book in the first place!
4. Books read for other challenges count.
5. There is no need to make a list ahead of time - for this type of challenge, it's probably best to remain open to serendipity in the bookblogosphere!

Thanks for participating in the challenge, Becky! You are a challenge goddess. I am still getting caught up after being away so much in August, but I'm off to read your reviews that I missed! Thanks again for recommending the books that I read for the challenge, particularly Savvy, which was one of my favorite books I read this summer.
