This year was my first time doing this reading challenge.  I will be doing it again next year, again at Level 2. Sign up here.  Details from the blog below:

Welcome to the 2015 What an Animal Reading Challenge VIII.  I began hosting this challenge in 2010, when I took it over from Kristi at Passion for the Page.  I love reading books that feature animals and am going to host this one again.  So, this is my sixth year of hosting it.  I hope you will join me.

The challenge will begin on January 1st. Read on for more details...

The rules are really simple...

1. Read at least 6 books that have any of the following requirements:

a. there is an animal in the title of the book

b. there is an animal on the cover of the book

c. an animal plays a major role in the book

d. a main character is (or turns into) an animal (define that however you'd like).

Level 1 - Read at least 6 books

Level 2 - Read 7-12

Level 3 - Read 13 or more

2. The animal can be any type of animal (real or fictitious)--dog, cat, monkey, wolf, snake, insect, hedgehog, aardvark...dragon, mermaid, centaur, vampire, get the idea...

3. Challenge runs from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015. That’s a full year to read at least 6 books. 

4. Books can be fiction or nonfiction.

5. You may make a list of books at the beginning of the challenge or you can just list them as you find them.

6. Book titles may be swapped out at anytime (assuming you made a list to begin with).

7. Crossovers with other challenges are permitted and encouraged.

8. You don't have to have a blog or write a review, but you can if you want to.
