Those who want to post their reviews on either of the 2 blogs, will have to email with their reviews beforehand. It is important to link your reviews or post them to one of our blogs, so we can count your books right at the scoreboard.

At the end of each month,we will be checking up on each review to see whether the books reviewed are eligible for the challenge. Moreover each month the scoreboard will be updated with the number of books for each participant.
In the end of the year 2 people will be given a 10 $ Gift Certificate (to Amazon or any other online bookstore). 1 winner will be the one with the highest number of books read and reviewed. The 2nd winner will be chosen randomly regardless of number of books.
