TwentyTen Challenge January Reviews Carnival

twentyten_reviews-300x200[1]Well, we’re at the end of the first month of the TwentyTen Reading Challenge, how are you doing? Enjoying it so far? Have a favourite read already?

What I’m hoping to do with this post and at the end of every month, is highlight a few of the reviews that have been posted, in the style of a review carnival. Hopefully, in addition to spreading a bit of link-love this will point you in the direction of one or two books you may not have come across before that will then help you compete the challenge!

A few stats before we start:

  • 126 Readers are signed up to take part!
  • 60 Review links posted!

What I’m hoping to do at the end of each month, is highlight a few of the reviews that have been posted, in the style of a review carnival. Hopefully, in addition to spreading a bit of link-love this will point you in the direction of one or two books you may not have come across before that will then help you compete the challenge!
