I have the first part of mine, though because my friend is reading the same books, I can't really add books in series she hasn't read yet. Like Inheritance.

I can put you down on a sliding scale. Another girl is doing that, she reads an insane amount, so everytime she hits her goal she's adding 25 to it.

hm~

I'll start with the His Dark Materials trilogy since that's actually sitting on my bookshelf and I've just never got around to it.

> 3>

so~ The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman will be up first

Awesome! I've read that and half of the second one, which is completely different, I think.

I can't wait till January 1st.

Do any of you do the Goodreads First Reads Giveaways? I didn't used to do them, but after I got 40-50 books on my list and had reviewed them, I started entering them and I've won two so far.

I'm reading the first one I won right now, and the second one is sitting on my desk waiting to be read.

But I mean, getting a book for free, before it comes out, and all you have to do is review it. You might as well. o.o

How does that work? I mean I have a good reads account, I've just never heard of that.
Its actually through good reads that I had originally heard of the challenge.

Starfruit; You go here: http://www.goodreads.com/giveaway. Or click the down arrow next to "Explore" then click "Giveaways".

You just go through the list, the first one asks for your address, then it automatically saves it. And you can enter as many as you want. Then at the last page it tells you the rules of entering.

Cerebral; It's okay, mine suck too. They don't have to be awesome, I usually just put if I liked it or not, if it took a long time to get through or if it was a fast read, and anything I liked or disliked specifically about the book.

Short, simple, and to the point. I usually don't read the ones where they go in-depth about the plot and characters and stuff anyway because I don't want to ruin the book for myself.
