Take ANOTHER Chance challenge

-Hey there marauders-

Not that I am sure any of you need another challenge in your life, but we here at GBI suggest that you drop all others and pick up this amazing one by our dear friend Jenners! Way back in the day Padfoot and Prongs hosted our own literary scavenger hunt which we are so very proud to say helped inspire Jenners to start her own challenge which was a raving sucess! And it just so happens that since the first one was such a great time she is doing it all over again. Below is the information and be sure to check out her page to sign up and participate in the Take Another Chance Challenge!

Basic Information

The challenge will run from January 1, 2010 until December 31, 2010.

  • Here are the participation levels. Feel free to do whatever level you want. You can also switch up or down midway through the challenge.
A Small Gamble: Complete any 3 of the 12 challenges described below.
A Moderate Gamble: Complete any 6 of the 12 challenges described below.
Gambling It All: Complete all 12 of the challenges described below.
  • Each challenge you complete and link up in the correct Mr. Linky spots (which will be posted on January 1, 2010) will earn you entries into a prize drawing at the end of the challenge. Some of the challenges are harder and will earn you more entries. If you complete all 12 challenges, you will earn 5 extra entries into the drawing.
  • The prize is a book of the winner's choice from Amazon (worth $25 or less).
  • Crossover books from other challenges is fine.
You can find the list of challenges on her blog as well as the sign up at her blog so get signed up and be sure to check back with us as we update over the course of 2010!

Also if you are a member of the Good Books Club and are not a member of Google Wave PLEASE leave me a comment so that I can send you an invite. We are setting up and trying out a few new things for January's book discussion and we could use some input.

Oh and finally make sure to check out the GBI Etsy store! Perfect for literary lovers of all ages! Tell all your friends and maybe you will get lucky and they will purchase you one of our literary items for the holidays!! We have a sale going on as well as new items going up every week so keep checking back! If you purchase something you will get this adorable note in your package, which we think is reason enough to buy!

Alright more to come this week. We promised you updates and by god we will give you updates! Until next time marauders...

  1. Drooling and contemplating your store, marauders, trying to figure out who I can give some of it to :]

    Planning to participate the next bookclub bout, and do not yet have wave, so: isilwene, or nirinia @

  2. I'm such a loser about reading when I'm supposed to ... I suspect I shall never participate in your book club. I'm heading over to check out your Etsy store .. and I'm glad you're doing the challenge!! After all, you were the inspriration for it!

  3. @Nirnia Haha glad we have you drooling. There is more to come in the near future. Make sure to keep some things for yourself!! Also look for your googlewave invite here in the next day or so!

    @Jenners - No problem we understand that we are all busy busy busy with challenges to run and blogs to update. Not to mention lives to live at one point or another haha. Hope you find something you like at the store and thanks again for all the encouragement!


You solemnly swear you are up to no good...
