The Tudor Book Blog Reading Challenge

Many of you have probably noticed that I haven't been posting like I used to. The past few months have been pretty hard on me. I lost a very close family member, started a new job, and have just been all around swamped with life. However, I figure the best thing to do is start the New Year afresh. I figured the best way to jump start the Book Blog would be to hold a reading/review competition.

The Tudor Book Blog Reading Challenge is pretty simple:

1) Choose your "goal" position at court:

Lowly Page (1-3 books)
Squire (3-5 books)
Knight (5-7 books)
Lord/Lady of the Court (7-9)
Groom of the Chamber/Lady-in-Waiting (10-12 books)
Prince/Princess (12-15 books)
King/Queen (16 + books)

2) Sign up here with your name, a link to your blog (if you have one), and your "goal" (chosen from above).

3) Start reading! Any Tudor related book (fiction or non fiction) you read and finish in 2012 counts. To enter each book, write a review (it doesn't have to be long, just a short overview and your thoughts) and post the link to it (if you post it on your own site, fb, etc.). If you do not have a website, do not fear! Each month I will have a new post for the competition. You can post it in the comment box there. 

4) All entries must be in by Dec. 25th, 2012. The results will be posted on Jan. 1, 2013. 

One lucky winner will be drawn randomly from those who complete their "goal." This winner will receive several Tudor-related items. Throughout the competition, new items will be added to the prize pack. A separate prize will be given to the person who reads/reviews the most books. 

You can enter the competition at anytime before Dec. 25, 2012. If you are entering another reading challenge, feel free to use your same reviews/books for this challenge. The more challenges the merrier! 

I hope you all enjoy this competition as much as I will! If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Good Luck!

Here is the page to sign up! Good Luck!


  1. How do you enter The Tudor Book Blog Reading Challenge?
    On FB, known as "The Tudor Dynasty"

  2. Hi Anthony! All you need to do is leave a comment on this page (http://www.thetudorbookblog.com/p/tudor-book-blog-reading-challenge.html) with your name, website, and your reading "goal" (i.e. King, Page, etc.). Hope this helps :) Glad you're joining the challenge!

  3. I think I'm going to aim for Princess. I think this might be challenging for me though because I've read a ton of tudor related books already and might have trouble finding new ones

  4. Is the reading challenge still going? I just found this blog. :))
