Happy New Year! Thursday, Jan 1 2009 

First, Happy 2009! May it be a joyous and fruitful year for you all.

A hard decision had to be made, but I will not be continuing the BAM Challenge into 2009. I hope you have had fun participating. I am leaving the site up so that others can use it as a resource. Please also continue adding suggestions in the comments section as you think of them!

But not to leave you hanging, here’s a list of 12 topics you can use to continue on with your own BAM Challenge if you so desire. Thank you for joining me in this fun exercise!

  1. New
  2. First
  3. Luck
  4. Self
  5. Travel
  6. Conflict
  7. Classic
  8. Season
  9. Food
  10. Environment
  11. Security
  12. Balance

Also, we had one last suggestion from Nanci in honor of President-elect Barack Obama: Change. Linda Dyndiuk compiled a great list on this very topic for September’s challenge, and revisiting previous topics are always encouraged!

Thank you, again, for your enthusiasm and participation!

Coming in 2008! Wednesday, Dec 5 2007 

Welcome to the Book A Month (BAM) Challenge. Right around the first of the month, every month, we’ll be posting a theme. All you have to do is read a book that corresponds to that theme and post a review, either on your own website/blog and comment with a link to it or in the comments for the post itself. Pretty simple, right? This is perfect for those looking to fulfill their New Year’s Resolution of “read more books”. See you around January 1st!
