Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge 2013

Challenge Guidelines:

  • Runs January 1, 2013 – December 31, 2013 (books read prior to 1/1/2013 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 2013 than you did in 2012. See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you. You can move up a level as often as you’d like but no moving down.
  • Books can be any format (bound, ebook, audio).
  • Novellas that are at least 100 pages in length, as well as full-length novels, will count for this reading challenge.
  • 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 can track your progress on Goodreads or LibraryThing.

     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

2012's challenge was very close, but I just ran out of time, I ended up three books shy of 2011's totals! So I'm back to give it another shot.

2012's total was (not including children's picture books) 47. My goal was an additional 11-15.

I think I will stick with that goal this year. 

Breaking a sweat - Read 11-15 more books

I may not succeed, but a girl's gotta have a goal, right?! And that is mine. Hopefully the year will be a bit less crazy (no plans to get married again or anything), so let's get to it!!
