Simon Pulse Rom Com Challenge!

(I saw this from twitter, @PageTurnersBlog who pointed me to The Book Celler, who found the challenge on Chick Loves Lit)

There is a new challenge on the block. How exciting. I usually don't do challenges, but I started them this year. So, I figure why not! I have been reading the Simon Pulse Romantic Comedies for a few years now. I can't remember the first one I read, but they're very addicting.


You can find more about the challenge here. The Simon Pulse Rom Com Challenge runs September 1, 2010 - September 1, 2011. There are four levels for this challenge:

Rom Com Lover - 5 books
Rom Com Raver - 15 books
Rom Com Addict - 25 books
Rom Com Crazy - 35+ books

I am going Rom Com Crazy - You can count books you have read before the start date, but you want to read at least 50% of the books during the year.

Here's a complete list of all 38 Simon Pulse Romantic Comedies. I'm going to bold all the ones I've read prior to September 1, 2010 and I'll simply bold each book that I read as the year goes on.

Looking at the numbers, I'm not sure I qualify for this specific challenge, so I'm coming up with a new challenge. I'm going to track down the ones I haven't read yet, because they're books that I've been wanting to read.

Are you up for the challenge?

Welcome to the challenge! I'm jealous that you've read so many - can't wait to see if you can find the rest :)
