Dean Koontz Reading Challenge 2012

No matter if you haven't read a book by him before or whether you know them all, this challenge is for both newbies as well as fans. It doesn't matter whether it's his latest novel or a re-read, every book with Dean's name on it counts! I'm a huge fan of Dean Koontz, so in my case it will be mostly re-reading, preferably of older books. If you should need some recommendations, don't hesitate to ask. And here's a little helper: Dean Koontz Book List

3 Books - Odd Thomas' Mailman

6 Books - Odd Thomas' Neighbor (this will be the one I'm settling for)

9 Books - Odd Thomas' Best Friend

12 Books or more - Odd Thomas' Stalker

If all this talk about Odd Thomas confuses you, I suggest you start the challenge by reading the respective novel!

To sign up, please read the general rules below! Then post about the challenge on your blog, including the button above, and don't forget to link back to the Dean Koontz Reading Challenge page on my blog!



Anyone may join. Just leave a comment below with the following info:
Name / Blog (if you have one) / Chosen Level

I'll comprise a list with everyone and add it to this page!
Updates on the challenges will be posted on a regular basis and you may then comment with your own progress.

The challenge will take place between January 1st and December 31st 2012.

You can join any time between now and early 2012.

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.

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 the challenge.

The books you choose may crossover into other challenges.

Both physical and eBooks are allowed.

Reviews of the books read are not mandatory.

If you have any questions, please comment below!

  1. Eeeeek! I'm a huge Koontz fan? Are audiobooks allowed?

  2. I had no idea he had that many books, wow. I may join this one. Lightning is a favourite.

  3. @Darlene: Audiobooks don't count, but seeing how you're a big fan I'm sure you'll find a few books you want to read again, right?

    @Marce: I sure hope you will join us!

  4. That's too bad, Birgit. Listening to audiobooks is my main method for reading, since I'm usually multi-tasking! I don't have the luxury of time to sit and read.

  5. Suey here! I'm officially signing up to join this challenge with the hope to read 3 books. I want to finish the Odd Thomas series. Here's my link:
