2012 Challenges

I didn’t do so well on my 2011 challenges, but I guess as long as I’m reading, I’m winning.  You can check out my 2011 Challenges page to see how I did.  2012 will be another year of too many challenges.  You can follow my progress throughout the year on my 2012 Challenges page.

Courtney over at Abducted By Books is hosting the 15,000 page challenge… in which… you try to read 15000 pages in the year.  I’ve never counted pages, so I’m curious.

Finish the Series.  I’m going for level three – finishing three series.   I’ve chosen The Demon’s Lexicon Series by Sarah Rees Brennan (1 book), Stephanie Plum by Janet Evanovich (12 books), Myron Bolitar by Harlan Coben (8 books).

I’m trying to switch to more books on my e-reader.  I still love “real” books, but there is just no room on my shelves (or my drawers or my counters or my bed) for all of the books I’m planning on buying this year and also it will make moving so much easier.

I’m doing Fun Size for 10 e-books and feel like that is a safe level for me to aim for.

I’m doing Mini-Cooper Level: 4 books.  I may upgrade at some point. My Bucket List:
1. Little Brother by Cory Doctorow
2. An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
3. Soulless by Gail Carriger
4. The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff

I’ve mostly been trying to pick challenges that would fit nicely into the reading I already have planned.  I have tried to read outside my comfort zone ever since Revolution completely and unexpectedly blew me away and this challenge will encourage me to continue to do so.  I will read and review a book from twelve different genres this year.

I’m signing up for level one: 12 books.  I love my library and I’m hoping for more.

    Awesome reading challenges! I’m going to look into the Bucket List challenge, because I am a sucker for Reading Challenges… I’m even going to re-host my re-reading challenge, despite the fact that since becoming a book blogger and discovering hundreds of books I want to read I no longer re-read as often as I once did.

    Thanks for plugging my challenge Steph!

    I also want to do the Finishing the Series challenge, but my stupid work computer wont let me bring it up! I’ll have to remember to sign up when I get home! I could finish the Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe, and the Georgia Nicolson series, and I’m going to read the Lord of the Rings again!
