My 2013 Reading Challenges

Once again I am overdoing it on my reading challenges (see the list over there on the left... cringes ). So far I have 35 different challenges chosen to try. Many are challenges that require very few reads (6 or under) several require just 12 different reads. Then there are those that go way beyond that, such as the 2013 Category Challenge, Mount TBR and Book Bingo.

Some of the challenges are carryovers from 2012 that I never did get to and luckily they have been brought back for 2013.

One of my goals this year it to definitely read as much as I can from my already overflowing book shelves. I am notorious for buying books so much faster than I can read them. I'm sure I will buy new books this of an addiction for me and one I thoroughly enjoy and never want cured of!

I will admit. Deciding on which challenges to tackle and tyear I won't be able to help it and truthfully I don't want to. Yes buying books is somewhat hen which books to read for each challenge and which books will crossover challenges is as much fun as reading the books! It's my type A personality. Lists are a big thing with me. I make lists for everything and usually end up changing them at some point. And besides, If you're going to do something why not jump right in and do it in a big way!

I am completely and utterly addicted to reading challenges so of course I am going for the Out of This World level of 16+ categories. My list of challenges is on the left. Clicking on the challenge name will take you to my post about that challenge (as I get them done). There I will keep track of what books I've read for the challenge and how close I am getting to finishing the challenge. Listed below are all of the challenges with a tally of how many books I have read/need to read for each one.

Last year I finished 20 challenges. This year I hope to finish a lot more!

One other thing....just to set some parameters for my reading. I have some restrictions on how the books I read will fit into my challenges.

My personal challenge rules:
1. No more than 4 challenges per book.
2. The following challenges will not count as one of the “4” challenges per book:
Outdo Yourself
Mount TBR
TBR Double Dare
52 books in 52 weeks
2013 Category challenge
Let Me Count the Ways
Simply because every book I read will fit these challenges..except for any new
book I buy during the year

2013 Category Challenge (91) - pyramid style

TBR Pile (12) – Books read for this challenge cannot be used for any other challenge except for the 2013 Category Challenge and one of the two Genre challenges and Mount TBR. Books read for this challenge will not count towards the TBR Double Dare Challenge so must be read between May 1st and December 31st.

A book may be used for only of one these genre challenges…it cannot be used for both.
