Tea & Books Reading Challenge

The Challenge:
This challenge was inspired by C.S. Lewis' famous words, "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me." and is hosted by The Book Garden. This is to read books with at least 700 pages.

The Rules:
  1. Anyone may join. Just leave a comment below with the following info:
  2. Name / Blog (if you have one) / Chosen Level
  3. I'll comprise a list with everyone and add it to this page!
  4. Updates on the challenge will be posted on a regular basis and you may then comment with your own progress.
  5. The challenge will take place between January 1st and December 31st 2012.
  6. You can join any time between now and early 2012.
  7. You have to pick a level, though you may "upgrade" to the next one at any time. In this case just drop me a line, so I can change your previous level.
  8. You don't need to list your books ahead of time, though I won't object if you do. I'm definitely curious about your book choices for these challenges.
  9. The books you choose may crossover into other challenges.
  10. Both physical and eBooks are allowed, though personally I feel that especially the Tea & Books Reading Challenge is more fun with real books.
  11. Reviews of the books read are not mandatory.
The Levels:
2 Books - Chamomile Lover
4 Books - Berry Tea Devotee
6 Books - Earl Grey Aficionado
8 or more Books - Sencha Connoisseur

My Goal:
Chamomile Lover - 2 books

I was going to say, "it's not that many" but it is. 20 is a lot. BUT...most of them allow for cross use of books :) Also what is the biggest thing that could happen? I don't complete them. I am sure to discover some good reading in the process. Or that's what I keep telling myself.
