Brush the cobwebs aside,
Pull the book from the shelf.
Blow the dust off the cover,
Then immerse yourself.

If you feel literarily negligent dust off those old, classic books, stories or plays you've always wanted to read and join me in the 2012 Dusty Volumes Reading Challenge.

This challenge will run from 1/1/12 to 12/31/12.  All 2012 Dusty Volumes must be read and reviewed in 2012.

To join:
  • Write a post about this challenge on your blog with a link back to this post.  
  • Include a list of the Dusty Volumes you hope to read in 2012.  They should have a publishing date before 1960.  You can add, subtract or change the list at anytime.
  • Grab a button and add it to your post or sidebar.  (Hint: adding it to your sidebar will earn you extra entries in future Dusty Volumes giveaways!  Plus, it would really make my day.)
  • Sign up on Mr. Linky below.  Please enter the link to the Dusty Volumes post on your blog, not your main blog page.  (If you link to your main blog page, unfortunately it will be deleted.)   
  • When you write a review on one of your Dusty Volumes please let me know by leaving a comment below with a link to your review.  OR, you can leave a comment on one of my Dusty Volumes reviews when I post them.  Also, if/when you write your review it would be great if you could mention that it is part of the Dusty Volumes Reading Challenge.
  • If you don't have a blog:  You can just sign up using your name.  You can link to Goodreads, Amazon, Shelfari, etc.  OR, instead of linking to a review you can leave a comment with your thoughts.  

I have not verified all the books on these lists, but here are a few links to help you out:
~YA books published before 1960 from The Pulse.org
~Another list from Goodreads.com.

I wasn't going to sign-up for too many challenges this year, but am thinking that I may go for this one. I have a few classics sitting on my shelf that have yet to be cracked open. *coughJaneEyrecough*
