2013 Reading Challenges
I’ve decided to take on 3 reading challenges for 2013. In the years past, these have been personal challenges. This year I hope to actually participate in organized challenges hosted by my fellow bloggers. Here’s what I’m challenging myself to read in 2013:
Challenge: The 2013 Reading Challenge
Level: 80 Books
Since I actually start and end my reading challenges on December 15 each year, my Goodreads numbers and my actual numbers are sometimes different. Either way, I’m setting both challenges to 80 this year, a step up from my goal of 75 from last year. All books except picture books count for this challenge.
Challenge: The 2013 Debut Author Challenge
Level: 12 books
I love the idea of specifically reading books by new authors, and this challenge offers formal ARC tours, prizes, and an excellent community of readers discovering the same great books that I’m reading. I’m sold!
Challenge: 2013 Feminist Reads Challenge
Host: The Hiding Spot
Level: Hard (10+ books)
What I love most about this challenge is that I get to define what a feminist book is. This may mean different things to different people, but the point is that we are seeking to read books with strong female protagonists.
Of course, I would probably read 10+ of these types of books anyway, but the added benefit of the formal challenge will help me share my reading list and the lists of others so we can inspire oodles of feminist reading in the world.
Which are your personal reading challenges for 2013? Are you participating in any formal challenges?
