Vampires, angels, demons, werewolves and fae. If you can’t pick a favorite, then that’s okay!
Under The Covers is hosting the Immortal Reading Challenge-



1. The Immortals Reading Challenge runs from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012. You can join at anytime from now and throughout the year. This is a 2012 challenge, so books read before January 1 will not count to your progress.

2. You pick your goal! Read as many books as you’d like for each species. This means that you can do just one category or all five or a combination of. The choice depends on you and your reading pace.

*We have chosen to have a three book per species standard. However, if this is a breeze for you, then feel free to tackle on the additional bonus entries of two more books of the same level.

3. Re-reads are acceptable.

4. Books chosen can be of any genre.

5. To participate, copy and paste this post on your blog along with the challenge button. We ask that you provide a link back to the sign-up page in case others wish to participate.

6. Readers without blogs can still participate! Keep track of your progress with Goodreads, Shelfari or LibraryThing.
To sign up:

1. Make a sign up post announcement, listing the level you've chosen and a list of books you plan to read. If you don't have a blog, post on GoodReads or another site as a thread where we can access your list of books. Be sure to take the image above and use in your post.

2. Go over to UTC, add your entry with a link directly to that post so we can see what you'll be reading.

You're done! Every month during 2012 we will make a challenge update post where you can come and updates us on how you're doing with your challenge.

This month I read a ton of Romantic Suspense and 1 PRN--which was Darynda Jones' Third Grave Dead Ahead--I also managed to catch up on Cassandra Clare's A Clockwork Prince and City of Fallen Angels--but both really didn't fit any of my categories of a paranormal read, even though there were secondary paranormal characters.  Maybe next month, I'll do better.
How about you?  How many PRN books did you manage to squeeze in this month?
