Antonym Reading Challenge 2012 Sign Up

January 1, 2012 - December 31, 2012

Are you ready to take the challenge!?!

The goal of this challenge is to read books by matching antonyms in the title. To help you out, here is a link to a couple of web sites to get you started:  Opposite Word and Thesaurus.

Your books can be of any genre and any format (ie. paperback, ebook, audiobook, etc.). No short stories. Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are fine. (Re-read reviews must be written within the year 2012; you can not use old reviews.)

You can list your books in advance or list them as you read them. The idea of this challenge came from a Goodreads group. 


**Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate.
**Non-Bloggers: Sign up in the comments section. Post your reviews with other book sites (ie. Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, Shelfari, etc.) and post the link in the comments section of the Antonym Reading Challenge Review Link. (will post January 1).

Example:
hot/cold
HotHot Ice by Nora Roberts
Cold: Cold Fire by Dean Koontz
Bonus: Hot Flashes and Cold Cream by Diann Hunt

mean/generous
Mean: Lean Mean Thirteen by Janet Evanovich
Generous: The Generous Wife by Lori Byerly

**the bonus is not required. it's totally up to you if you want to complete a bonus**

Levels:
Diploma: 6 – 10 books
Bachelors: 12 – 20 books
Masters: 22 – 30 books
Doctorate: 32+

When you sign up on Mr. Linky, put the direct link to your blog post about this challenge. Include a link to this post, so that your followers can sign up too! You can either list your books on your challenge post, sidebar, or a page dedicated to your challenges.

What a fun idea! I was amazed at how many antonym books I have sitting on my shelves (which will work out quite nicely for my Mount TBR Challenge). I'm in! {Like I could really resist a challenge...}

Update! Found enough in my TBR stacks to upgrade to the Doctorate level!

Neat challenge!

Question: The challenge levels are missing 11, 21, and 31 books. Which levels do those fit into?

@Darlene
11: Diploma
21: Bachelors
31: Masters

Since it takes two books to complete a set, the odd numbers (11, 21, 31) would mean you completed a bonus but not enough books to level up.

Hope that helps...

How fun! Luckily, I started out 2012 with the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld, so I already have Uglies and Pretties! lol I guess I could do Specials and Extras, too, but those are only antonyms in the books, not in the Webster dictionary. :)
