Cozy Challenge

The 2009 Cozy challenge is kindly hosted by Not Enough Books.

Challenge Rules:
1. The challenge runs from April 1, 2009 –September 30, 2009 (6 months)

2. The goal is to read at least 1 cozy mystery for each month, so a total of 6. You can read these all in the same month, one per month, or however you want.

3. It is ok to use books that you are already reading for other challenges, however at least 2 need to be specific for this challenge.

4. You do not need to have a blog to participate

5. You are not required to make a list of books you plan to read ahead of time, but it would be fun if you did. I do ask that you at least create a post for this challenge and link back to this post. Please also note how many books you plan to read for this challenge.

6. You must sign-up before April 1st, so the last date to sign up is March 31st.

7. To sign up for the challenge – please use Mr. Linky below. Behind your name, please put the number of books you plan to read for this challenge in (). Example: Kris (6) If you have trouble with Mr. Linky, just leave a comment.

8. At the end of the challenge, If you have a blog, please create a wrap-up post telling others how you did and listing each of the books you read for the challenge and link them to your reviews. I will create a posting regarding the end of the challenge and ask that you sign Mr. Linky and link your wrap-up post.

  1. Great list! I have read all authors except J.B. Stanley (which I plan to read but haven't gotten around to it yet). I'm all bummed because I went to get my copy of Cream Puff Murder this past week and the store didn't have it! augh! I'm hoping to get a copy to read for this challenge though. I'm already planning to switch out one of the books I listed. haha!

    Thanks for joining my challenge!

  2. This sounds like something I'd enjoy as I love cozies, but I'm in so many challenges right now. I'm not sure I can keep up...but maybe I can :)

  3. You convinced me! I'm all signed up and my books are chosen :)

  4. OH....I am so tempted to sign up for this challenge. I am discovering that I really do enjoy the cozy mysteries -- and when I win Oolong Dead from your lovely give- away (yea....right) I know that I will immediately add that to the list.

    Still need to decide if it is possible to complete the challenge - but you have sure tempted me!

  5. I haven't read many cozy mysteries, but last winter I read all of the Joanne Fluke books up to that point. They were fun, but as I am dieting, I don't think I want to read any of them now.
