This Challenge was for new Tudor reviews for any new or old Tudor books participants reviewed in May, June and July 2010. 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). EDIT to add certain books regarding the end of Edward IV's reign are acceptable, as some contain a lot of the beginnings of the Tudor Dynasty such as Edmund and Jasper Tudor. For example, To the Tower Born by Robin Maxwell is allowed, as well as the upcoming release of The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory.
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.
At the end of the challenge, I chose the member of the challenge who reviewed the most Tudor books in the Challenge Period (May through July) winning a book prize of their choice up to $15 in value from The Book Depository since that is FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE. That way, International Readers joined in the LinkFest and compete for the prize. I also had a second and third prize of lesser value, to be determined.
