The (Soon-to-Be) Monster List of All-Bookish Links


Well, I guess I'm not surprised. This post was simply meant to be my list of upcoming bookish events that I planned on joining for the remainder of the year. Now it's this unwieldy list of links including challenges, memes, and bookish link-ups. And I know there is more.

I have a notebook where I have been scribbling all these events. Most often I am always floundering -- ugh, I forgot about the event, or I find out too late to rejig my reading plans.

So I decided to make "lemonade" out of this dilemma! You can help me build up this list and make this an evolving resource. There's a form down at the bottom. Or just leave a comment and I'll add it in!

Maybe this will help me -- and all readers out there -- to get a bit of a head start on the wide variety of bookish events we can join in!

*indicate I partake, or have joined in in the past

Note that most events/challenged are repeated annually. Please check individual links to find out details.
