So I know I did a pretty crappy job with my reading challenges this past year. This was something new for me, so I’m just chalking it up to a learning experience.
I’ve decided to sign up for two challenges and create my own personal challenge (aside from my year reading goal of 75).
First, my personal reading challenge is to read the first 15 books added to my Goodreads “to read” queue. You can see my page on that here.
I’ve decided to sign up for two of the challenges that I participated in last year: What’s In a Name & The Historical Fiction Challenge.
What’s In a Name is still hosted by Beth Fish Reads and it requires 6 books (6 different categories) to complete the challenge.
The Historical Fiction challenge is once again hosted by Historical Tapestry (by the way, have you seen their layout? I haven’t been on there in a while so I don’t know how long it’s looked like it does, but it looks great!). Anyway, they created different levels and I’ve chosen the Renaissance Level, which is 10 books to be completed throughout the year.
Right now, I think those are good enough for me to do. I won’t feel as pressured and I’m sure I’ll find books that overlap (though I’ll have to double check the rules to see if they allow overlaps, but I think they did last year, so I’m sure it’s the same for 2013).
You can see the buttons for these challenges to the right. I’ll be posting the challenge sign-up posts during this week.
I also plan to do more non-book posts in 2013 (be on the lookout for some sewing things!)
