What I don't need is another challenge. But this sounds fun, so here goes....
Hogwarts Reading Challenge 2010. This is being hosted by Bunnitaz @ Worth Reading It?
Read (and list - along w/ finish dates) at least 5 books that fit Hogwarts classes. Each book read wins 1 point toward the house cup. Any Harry Potter books read win 25 points toward the house cup.
The classes include: Transfiguration, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Charms, Potions, Astronomy, History of Magic, Herbology, Arithmancy, Ancient Runes, Divination, Care of Magical Creatures, and Muggle Studies. There are guidelines to what books fit what classes, of course.
There are prizes (available to those with blogs or who participate through Shelfari or Facebook), and mini-challenges.
