Hogwarts Reading Challenge

I've only just found this, and I know i said i wouldn't sign up to any more challenges, but as a Harry Potter super fan, i couldn't resist.

Here are some of the details on the challenge. For complete rules, click HERE.

In the Hogwarts Reading Challenge you are a student of the school. You will be sorted into houses. Each book you read must fit in to the subject of one the classes. You do not have to read books that fit all the subjects. Each book equals one point (toward the house cup).

You must read at least 5 books (audio books counts) before you are enter in to the drawing. At the end of the Challenge one person will win a $15 Amazon Gift Card and one house will win the House Cup (purely a pride thing).


I'm in Gryffindor!!! Wooo.
