E-Book Challenge 2010

I might just go with the obsessed  Level since I do read a lot of e-books, looks like a fun challenge for 2010.

This challenges was previously hosted by J. Kaye's Book Blog. When J. Kaye kindly offered to let Royal Reviews take over running this host we were very excited.

A couple of the Royal Reviewers myself included do not live in the US. We live in Australia and E-Book Readers are not easily available, so it was a very exciting day when we discovered that Kindle has been released for the Australian market. So are very exciting that we can participate in the E-Book Challenge.

Challenge Guidelines:

--Non-Bloggers: Include your information in the comment section.

-- Fascinated – Read 6 E-Books.

-- Addicted – Read 12 E-Books.

-- Obsessed – Read 20 E-Books.
