Information here is taken from the site:

Rules/Guidelines:

The basic idea of this challenge is to read books about GLBT topics and/or by GLBT authors.

The challenge runs year-round, and there will be three levels of participation:

  • Lambda Level: Read 4 books.
  • Pink Triangle Level: Read 8 books.
  • Rainbow Level: Read 12 or more books.

You don't need to choose your books right away, and they can change at any time. Overlaps with other challenges are fine.

In January, I will put up a post for you to leave links to your reviews, if you like. Those links can help serve as a reference for others. That will also be how I track participants for prize drawings.

Prizes! There will be prizes, both for this main challenge and for various mini-challenges throughout the year. Keep an eye on the blog for details.

 

Hosted by Amanda at The Zen Leaf and Jen from Multi Genre Fan the site is very well organized and clear.

Shellie’s Commitment:

  • Lambda Level: Read 4 Books (I may read more)
  • Shellie’s Goodreads GLBT shelf link to access books from

Amanda -
Thanks for doing this important challenge...

hopefully this post will help spread the word more about your already popular challenge. :)

The site looks awesome, you can tell you both thought about it a lot since it is really logical and clearly laid out. It also helps with the white background.

Great Job!

Oh, thanks for posting this, Shellie! You are such a dearth of awesome, intelligent information. I'm starting to think perhaps you've got supernatural powers... ;) I'm going to ask if my novel might perhaps be considered as part of the challenge, as it contains GL characters. Thanks again for posting!

Nicole -
Thank you -
I'm really not that smart or wealthy for that matter - I'm just good at searching and cut and paste commands.

Yes it will be included with this challenge as well as the War Through the Generations challenge since I think they are still doing the WWII Books and as many other challenges I can finagle.

You should be linked all over the place. ;)
