I heard right from the source (Book Garden) about this challenge, and since I love both tea and books, decided I must join the Tea & Books Reading Challenge.
Here is how it works:
Last year you had to read 700+ pages but she reduced this to 650+ for 2013.
And as a little incentive - books with more than 1.200 pages will count for two books (so theoretically you can read four such super-chunksters to reach the Sencha Connoisseur level)!
Last but not least - no large print editions of a book, please!
Here are the levels to strive for:
2 Books - Chamomile Lover
6 Books - Earl Grey Aficionado
8 or more Books - Sencha Connoisseur
