    There are no words to describe the immense success of our last thread Book challenge 2011, because of the zeal and enthusiasm shown by all you ILs out there!

    The last year's challenge definitely motivated each one of us to read atleast one page of a book a day. The regular excuses for not reading viz. I dont have time, 24 hours is not enough for me, I have young kids to look after all took a backseat. So let us keep up the good work and continue to read and motivate others in the group to take the challenge to a higher level in 2012.

    Increasing the number of books you challenge your-self with, indulging in reading new authors and genres all seem like a good action plan for the year. Come on, dont let go the reading habit! Gear up people!!!

    P.S : For any newbies who haven't started to take the challenge seriously, its never too late to start. So come join us at the wonderful world of books and here are the guideline :

    1. The challenger can make his/her own choice of number of books, he/she wants to complete.

    2. The challenger can post here, only if he/she is done with the book and not at any stage of book reading.

    3. The books can be of any language.

    4. It can be fiction or non-fiction or self - improvement, anything really except ofcourse cartoon books, comics, magazines and weeklys.

    5. We, the contenders follow the numbering here.
    For ex: If Ms.A makes a entry of her 4th book, then the book name should be preceded by number four.

    6. Also, please mention the name of the author too - that way all others could know more about the book too.! Adding in a 2 line description also lets others to understand what you are reading and well, who knows you might be sharing the same interests!

    7. Please rate every book you read. This will help the fellow readers make a mental note of all tha ratings readers have put and add the books to their to-read or wish list.

    8. If the book is a re-read, it should be a year ago. We dont want the same book names repeated right?

    So dear ILs wishing you a very healthy, prosperous, fulfilling and bibliophilic New year 2012.

    Best Regards,
    Vidya

    1) Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
    Surprisingly I didnt like the book :(

    One request to the moderator - can we pls maintain the thread with only the book details of the ILs. Can another thread be opened to discuss on the targets and other FB/chatting about books
