Erotica Romance Reading Challenge - 2010

Last year J Kaye from J Kaye Book Blog started the Erotica Romance reading challenge, not only was it fun but I met a whole host of bloggers through this challenge.
I have been asked if I would like to host this challenge this year and of course I jumped at the chance – because mainly I love erotica and secondly I am looking forward to meeting more bloggers this upcoming year.
From last years experience some bloggers had a problem with the more erotic button, so I have had two done – because with erotica it isn’t all about skin, it also about the words and alot of assumption.
In the right authors hands just the thought of and the build up can be more exciting than the act itself.
Looking forward to an exciting year reading Erotica with you guys.

 


Timeline: 01 Jan 2010 - 31 Dec 2010
Rules: To read TEN(10) Erotica Romance in 2010

I'm sorry to be a bother, but could you delete my link on #8? Since signing up, I've realized that my "Current Challenges" page is getting crowded so I've posted a new link to an individual post where I'll keep track of the challenge. Thanks and I can't wait for this to start!

Amanda Leigh on 10 January 2010 at 19:43 said...

I just signed up too. Is there a place yet for posting reviews? I didn't see one, but I could have missed it.

Dana on 11 January 2010 at 16:36 said...

Hey EH! I've never done a blog challenge but this one seems right up my alley! But excuse my ignorance, what do you do with a challenge like this? I mean, once I've done a post about it and added the link to my side bar, are readers going to be sharing what they've read, or are we reading certain books together? Thanks for the explanation!

Evelyn Applegate on 1 February 2010 at 03:46 said...

Hi again,

I can't post reviews on the blog. In fact, when I clicked any of the links at the top of the page it said the page did not exist, then everything turned into Spanish for some reason. Very odd.

I'll keep reading and posting reviews to my own blog for now.

Evelyn Applegate on 1 February 2010 at 03:51 said...

Having said "hello again" it seems my original post didn't show up so that doesn't make sense. Oops!

I also failed to read the instructions and posted the link to my blog instead of my post about the challenge. Sorry! Could you fix it for me please? Cheers.
It should have been
