Cozy Mystery Challenge – time to sign up!

**Sticky Post**

Last year I hosted a cozy mystery challenge in September, and I'm ready to do it again! The goal is to decide on a number of cozy mysteries you think you ran read in September, and then, well, read them in September!

In order to participate you need to:

  1. Decide on a number of cozy mysteries to read in September. (This can be from 1 up to, well, whatever you think you can squeeze in!)
  2. Create a post on your blog with the number you plan to read for this challenge and possible title selections, please create a link back to this post so others can easily find the challenge home if they wish to join.
  3. Sign-up with Mr. Linky so I can keep track of who all are going to play. Please put the number of cozies you plan to read behind your name. An example would be: Kris(04).
  4. When September is over, be sure to come back to my blog and I'll have a new post created where you can use Mr. Linky to let us all know how you did!


See, that's it! That's not so hard now is it?

Last year I asked people to read only cozy mysteries for the month of September, but that proved to be a little hard. So basically the only change is that you can read other stuff, just pick a number of cozies that you think you will be able to read, and try to stick to it.




***REQUEST: I'm pretty busy right now and not sure I'll have time to create a challenge picture. If you like to create these and have the time to create one for this challenge, I would really really appreciate it.***


***AUTHORS: Any authors out there willing to donate one of your cozy mystery books as a prize? I had a couple of authors offer to do this for me last year and loved being able to give away a book to a challenge participant. If you are interested, please notify via email. Thanks!***

Yeah! I'll be over to check out your list tomorrow lover of books. I, myself, still haven't put together my list. lol! We are working on the dining room now and so my library has all my boxes of books and tools and flooring and doors in there. haha! So it will take some effort to find my cozies.

grilsgood - I read a lot of mysteries too, I don't read as many cozies as I used to, but always have several waiting for me in the TBR pile.
