2013 Challenges

shhhh…this is a very quiet post….especially since I said I was going to cut back this year, BUT, I just can’t resist.  I am signing up for just a couple few more.  I would try to sneek them in but I have to follow the rules and they say I have to post…so here goes.  

Since it is obvious, the problem that I have, it only makes sense that I sign up for this one:

Some of us have a bit of a problem.

Some of us have a huge problem.

Cheryl from CMash Loves to Read and Gina from Hott Books are two such people. And they are the founding mothers of the Reading Challenge Addict Blog.  Bev from My Reader’s Block is one with a HUGE problem and the current author and caretaker of the Blog.  We each can stand proudly and say,

I am a Reading Challenge Addict.

So we are challenging each of you who can also say that you also are a Reading Challenge Addict.
There will be random prizes and recognition for those who are meeting their own expectations by completing the challenges they’ve entered.

How addicted are you?  I don’t quite know yet what level I will sign up for until all of 2013 challenges have been posted.

  • Easy as Pie: 1-5 Challenges (Entered & Completed)
  • On the Roof: 6-10 Challenges (Entered & Completed)
  • In Flight: 11-15 Challenges (Entered & Completed)
  • Out of This World: 16+ Challenges (Entered & Completed)


We’re not making this a difficult challenge, actually, it’s going to be very simple!

  1. The newest edition of the challenge will begin on January 1 and end on December 31, 2013.
  2. Write a starting post joining the challenge and outlining your challenges.
  3. Track all of your challenge accomplishments – good & bad.
  4. Stop by to join us in the mini-challenges, updates & extra giveaways throughout the year.
  5. Comment like crazy and offer support for your fellow addicts.
  6. Have FUN!

Easy, right? Who wants to be in on the fun? What else will be on offer? Random giveaways for participants to enter and unannounced special drawings for commenters on the site so be sure to leave your email address with your comment! Are you ready?

This reading challenge is hosted by Reading Challenge Addict. For more information and to sign-up, please see this post.

 The next one I failed miserably at in 2012, so until I get it right, will be signing up again.  Plus I really like the button.

Last year I had several folks either discover this reading challenge late in the game or who enjoyed it so much that they asked me to host again.  Just this week I’ve had requests from the color fans asking for another round. So, for your challenge reading pleasure, I will once again host The Color Coded Reading Challenge beginning January 2013.  Since this is my third year in, I’ve loosened the categories up a bit–I will now accept any shade of the required colors.
Here are the rules:
*Read nine books in the following categories.
1. A book with “Blue” or any shade of Blue (Turquoise, Aquamarine, Navy, etc.) in the title.
2. A book with “Red” or any shade of Red (Scarlet, Crimson, Burgundy, etc.) in the title.
3. A book with “Yellow” or any shade of Yellow (Gold, Lemon, Maize, etc.)in the title.
4. A book with “Green” or any shade of Green (Emerald, Lime, Jade, etc.) in the title.
5. A book with “Brown” or any shade of Brown (Tan, Chocolate, Beige, etc.) in the title.
6. A book with “Black” or any shade of Black (Jet, Ebony, Charcoal, etc.) in the title.
7. A book with “White” or any shade of White (Ivory, Eggshell, Cream, etc.)in the title.
8. A book with any other color in the title (Purple, Orange, Silver, Pink, Magenta, etc.).
9. A book with a word that implies color (Rainbow, Polka-dot, Plaid, Paisley, Stripe, etc.).
* Any book read from January 1 through December 31, 2013 will count.
*Crossovers with other challenges are fine.
*Everyone who completes all nine categories will be entered in a year-end drawing for a book-related prize package.
*Please post about the challenge on your blog. Sign ups accepted until Nov 30, 2013.
*Please sign up using the Linky [at the host’s site]. Give your name & blog (Example: Bev @ My Reader’s Block) and use a direct link to your challenge post as your url. Please don’t connect to just your home page.  Links to a list on GoodReads or other social media sites are also acceptable.
*Please use the Review Page to post review links and a final wrap-up post when you finish the challenge.  (Review Page Link coming soon)
*No blog or GoodReads site? That’s okay. Post a comment [at the host’s site] to announce your entry into the challenge and when you have completed the challenge just post a comment at the review site with a list of your books.

This reading challenge is hosted by My Reader’s Block. For more information and to sign-up, please see this post.
