The guidelines/rules for 52 books in 52 Weeks:

  1. The challenge will run from January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012.
  2.  Our book weeks begin on Sunday
  3.  Participants may join at any time
  4.  All books are acceptable except children books **
  5.  All forms of books are acceptable including e-books, audio books, etc
  6.  Re-reads are acceptable as long as they are read after January 1, 2012

  10. You don't have a blog to participate.  Post your weekly book in the comments section of each weekly post.   
  11. Mr. Linky will be added to the bottom of the weekly post for you to link to reviews of your most current reads
**in reference to children books. If it is a child whose reading it and involved in the challenge, then that's okay.  If an adult is doing read aloud with kids, the book should be geared for the 9 - 12 age group and above and over 100 pages. If adult reading for own enjoyment, then a good rule of thumb to go by "is there some complexity to the story or is it too simple?"  If it's too simple, then it doesn't count.

What is the Contentment Reading Challenge? Well, it's based on the idea that we, as avid readers, have many books scattered around our homes--on shelves, in the closet, under the bed, etc.--that we hope to read again "some day", but have not made the time to do so. Or maybe you are continually purchasing new books and never take the time to be content with the ones that are currently on your bookshelf.
  1. This IS a challenge, so there has to be some goals/levels to set. There's no pressure--just choose whatever level you think would be good for you to try and accomplish in this coming year.

                * Floating: Skimming the surface, you re-read 5 books you already own.
                * Wading: Getting your feet wet, you re-read 10 books you already own.
                * Swimming: Immersing yourself again, you re-read 15 books you already own.
                * Diving: Going deep into the stories you love, you re-read 20 or more books that you already own.
  2. This challenge officially starts on January 1st, 2012 and officially ends on December 21st, 2012
  3. If you have a blog, post about your decision to join in the Contentment Reading Challenge for 2012 and then leave a comment saying you want to join
