    Hi Angela,

    Love the challenge idea. I’m signed up for way too many challenges but I can’t resist one focused on Urban Fantasy. Count me in.

    By the way, I love the banner. Who designed it for you?

    Hi Jen – thanks for joining in the fun. I’m late in getting it up and running so I know that many people have signed up for lots of other challenges. My buttons were designed by the fabulous Parajunkee’s View aka Rachel. She’s really awesome.

    Great challenge! Most of the books are my list to read. But what if I’ve already read a few of these books on this list? I read them this year before this challenge was posted.

    No worries. If you already read some of the books on the list, they count towards your total for the challenge. I’m in the same position – just means that we are ahead of the game. Hope you decide to join.

    I will add as soon as new titles are available, but I’m looking at least once a week.

    Found your challenge through Missie (The Unread Reader), it looks great! I work at a SF/Fantasy/Comic book store so this is a great opportunity for me to read a lot of the books we get at the store.

    Thanks for hosting this challenge.

    My first challenge. : )
    Since I love UF, I thought it shouldn’t be too hard. I’ll just have to keep up with my Amazon wish list to make sure I get them ordered, lol.
