2012 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge

Details:

  • Runs January 1, 2012 – December 31, 2012 (books read prior to 1/1/12 do not count towards the challenge). You can join at anytime. Sign up on The Book Vixen’s blog.
  • The goal is to outdo yourself by reading more books in 2012 than you did in 2011. See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you. Nothing is set in stone; you can change levels at any time during the challenge.
  • Books can be any format (bound, eBook, audio).
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed.
  • Grab the reading challenge button and post this reading challenge on your blog to track your progress. Please include a link back to this sign-up post so others can join the reading challenge too. You do not have to be a book blogger to participate; you could track your progress on Goodreads or LibraryThing.

Levels:

  • Getting my heart rate up – Read 1–5 more books
  • Out of breath – Read 6–10 more books
  • Breaking a sweat – Read 11–15 more books
  • I’m on fire! – Read 16+ more books

I am going to start out with the “I’m on fire! rate up level.” I’ve read 124 books so far in 2011. My goal for 2012 is to read 150 books.

  2. Geez … I already read 400 books a year — guess I will read the same + some more unless my employment situation changes!

  3. Thanks for participating! Good luck and I hope you reach your goal 🙂

  4. I honestly can’t remember how many books I read in a year! I’ve been known to read 20 or more books during the summer months alone! So is there anyway I can pick a goal number and go for it? 😀
