Thanks to Jessica at HerInteractive, I'm able to offer prizes for the challenge! In case you didn't know HerInteractive makes computer games for young and teen girls, and are best known for their Nancy Drew adventure mystery game series.
There will be 5 prize sets all together given away to those who participate in the challenge.
Grand Prize (1 name drawn from all those who finish all 56 books) will win 5 games:
Nancy Drew: Warnings at Waverly Academy
Nancy Drew: Ransom of the Seven Ships
Nancy Drew: The Haunting of Castle Malloy
Nancy Drew: The Phantom of Venice
Nancy Drew Dossier: Resorting to Danger
First Prize (4 winners drawn from all those who finish at least 30 books) will win: Nancy Drew: Secret of the Old Clock (based on the first 3 books, Secret of the Old Clock, the Hidden Staircase, and Mystery at Lilac Inn)
One name will be drawn from all those who sign up for the challenge by December 31 will win: Secret of Shadow Ranch (based off the #1 selling Nancy Drew book)
All games are for PC only (unless you can run Windows on your Mac).
In order to be eligible to win your name MUST be on the Mr. Linky on the ORIGINAL POST with contact info either on your blog or in your comment in order for you to win. Also, while the challenge is open to anyone worldwide, prizes can only be sent out to US addresses.
At the end of the challenge, I will put up a post so that everyone can recap how they did throughout the year. Prizes will be awarded (except for the original signup prize) after that.
I'll also be posting updates throughout the year, and asking you as to how you're doing, so if you don't follow my blog or subscribe either by email or RSS feed, be sure to do so! I was made aware that 2010 will be the 80th anniversary of the creation of Nancy Drew so this is a spectacular way to honor the greatest teen sleuth in literary history! (Disclaimer: That is this blogger's personal opinion, you may disagree and that's quite ok!)
