OK….so Self and I have been having a dialogue over the past few days. We agree that I am a lost cause when it comes to challenges. It was either Gina, my buddy from Hott Books, or Julie, my other buddy from Reading Without Restraint…sorry having a senior moment..has brought it to my attention why they think I like challenges, not only for the concept but also for the adorable buttons. And I know if I say they are right, I’ll never hear the end of it, but, they are right!!!!
2010 was the first time ever that I kept record of how many books I read in a year. I had signed up for the 2010 100+ Challenge knowing that I would never get close but wanted to see just how close I would get. I didn’t do too bad considering I had some rough months with surgeries and slumps and still accomplished to get 68 books read. And then today…the Musing Monday question was just about this topic. I have been debating if I should sign up again for a 2011 100+ to see if I get any closer. I have had some very encouraging comments all day from from very kind visitors and Self and I have talked about:
I am challenging you to beat your 2010 record this year! Can you read over 100 books this year?
*The goal is to read 100 or more books.
*Anyone can join.
*You don’t need a blog to participate. Posting on GoodReads or wherever you post your reviews is good enough.
*Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, YA, Manga, Graphic Novels, Library books, Novellas, Young Reader, Nonfiction – as long as the book has an ISBN or equivalent or can be purchased as such, the book counts.
*What doesn’t count: Individual short stories or individual books in the Bible.
*No need to list your books in advance. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.
*Crossovers from other reading challenges count.
*Books started before the January 1st do not count.
*You can join at anytime.
