The Tudor Mania Challenge at The Burton Review
 
This is the "main landing page" post for the first Tudor Mania Challenge!
 
Starts May 1, 2010 and MckLinky comment form ends on July 31 at midnight CST. Each eligible MckLinky entry counts as one. Links will always be up, hopefully, for Tudor readers to peruse in the future.

This Challenge is for new Tudor reviews for any new or old Tudor books you have reviewed in May, June and July, and not for older reviews you have previously posted.

The Tudor Mania Challenge includes both non-fiction and fictional books set between 1485 and 1603, in England. Reviews must be around 300 words or more in length (to make sure everyone is playing fair).

Audio books/E-Books are welcome. The fun part of this is to see everyone's reviews and find new books and blogs to read.

Open to all participants worldwide.

At the end of the challenge, I will choose the member of the challenge who reviewed the most Tudor books in the Challenge Period (May through July) and offer up any book prize of their choice up to $15 in value from The Book Depository since that is FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE. That way, International Readers can join in the LinkFest and compete for the prize. I will also have a second and third prize of lesser value, to be determined.
 
Get organized! Feel free to start reading your books early, and then get your reviews ready to post for May, June and/or July. 
Here is a SUGGESTED TUDOR READING LIST

Use the normal blog comment form for questions or issues, or to say if you plan on participating! Suggest your favorite Tudor reads! Grab the button and post on your sidebar, and spread the word!
 
Entries are to be posted with the Link to your actual Tudor review that you are submitting via Mcklinky:
 
Enter the name of the book then the name of your blog in parentheses.
Such as:

May I review "To the Tower Born" by Robin Maxwell? The time period is 1483 but has Margart Beaufort and Elizabeth of York as main characters and partially focuses on how the Tudors were able to get the crown.

Let me know so I can post it with a link! Thanks!

Hello again! Quick question, I have just finished 'The White Queen' by Philippa Gregory and I will be writing a review. May I submit it here as part of the Tudor Mania Challenge-does it count?
