Have You Finished The Mad Reviewer Reading Challenge 2014? Tell Me Here!

Yes, it’s the end of 2014 already and so the end of my reading challenge is also nigh.  That means it’s also time to announce how I’ll be verifying the challenge entries as well as what the winners of the draw will receive.  I’ll start with the latter.

Here are the prizes for this year since last year’s prize distribution was really an unmitigated disaster (and I really do apologize to the winners last year for all of that):

  1. Grand prize winner: a $35 book shopping spree on The Book Depository.
  2. First Runner Up: a $15 book shopping spree on The Book Depository
  3. Second Runner Up: a couple of free ebooks donated by some close author friends.

If you have finished The Mad Reviewer Reading Challenge 2014, comment below with a link to your reviews or email me through my Contact page.  Even if you didn’t reach your goal, as long as you reached at least 12 books (the lowest level) you can still get entered.  The rules are here if you want to look.  And unlike last year, I am not chasing people around to see if they finished the challenge.  If you finished the challenge, please take the time to comment or contact me in some way or you won’t be entered into the draw for 12:00am MT on SUNDAY, JANUARY 4.

If you need a refresher, here are the different levels and the number of entries they get you:

1.  Mad Reviewer: 104 books in one year. (4 entries.)

2.  Crazy Reviewer: 52 books in one year. (3 entries.)

3.  Slightly Sane Reviewer: 26 books in one year. (2 entries.)

4.  Sane Reviewer: 12 books in one year.  (1 entry.)

And yes, as I said at the beginning of the challenge, they all have to be reviewed!

Once I get some people who have given me links to their reviews, I’ll list everyone who completed the challenge and the levels they accomplished.  My link goes to the ‘My Reviews’ list here on my blog, but other links will go directly to the person’s blog.

    Dear Carrie – yes I’m a Crazy reviewer! You can see all my reviews on my blog here: http://jemimapett.com/blog/category/book-reviews/ and nearly all of those have been copied over to Goodreads and amazon.co.uk (some to Amazon.com too). Since I got to my Goodreads target of 60, I think I’m there for Crazy 😀

    Thanks for doing this challenge, and for the wonderful prizes to the lucky winners!

    Hi Carrie,

    I’ve completed my initial entry amount for the Sane Reviewer. I tried to go up to the next level, but fell short. I hope it still counts! I can’t wait to start the challenge all over again!

      Congratulations on doubling your initial goal of 52 books! As for the monthly updates, that’s fine, I don’t really expect that at all. If you join the challenge in 2015, feel free to keep a page like that again; it was very easy and convenient for me to verify your reviews that way! 🙂
