Book Challenges 2013
Last year I only participated in the Goodreads Challenge and read more than my 60 books I wanted to read. This year I was looking at more challenges and picked some really cool ones. Most of them require an introduction and or goal setting post and I am combining all these in this one post.
I will, once again, participate in the Goodreads Challenge and my goal is to read 60 books this year too. I know that I managed to read 83 in 2012 but I want to be on the safe side in 2013 and I know that I have a lot of things planned so I might not be able to read so many books. If I set my goal to 60 books I am sure that I will complete it successfully and we all love to succeed, right?
6 awesome book bloggers host the 2013 TBR pile reading challenge and I will participate! I have so many unread books on my shelves and I would love to read more of those. Not only will I feel a lot better when doing so, I will also have more money throughout the year (when I'm not buying so many books) and it will be so much easier for all my friends and family to give me books for my birthday. I'm aiming to read 11-20 books from my TBR pile which is categorized as "a friendly hug" (I love this name). Hopefully I will read more than 20 books from my TBR pile but I can move up levels anytime during the year.
Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf is hosting a Witches & Wizards Reading Challenge. I sounds like so much fun so I added it to my ever growing list of challenges. My goal is to reach Initiate level (to read 1-5 Witchy books).
A Daydreamer's Thoughts host a Genre Variety Challenge. I like many genres but feel like I neglected some awesome ones last year. So I will try to jazz up my reading by participating in this challenge. I am Careful and will try to read 6 books from 6 different genres this year.
I also will participate in the Book Blogger Recommendation Challenge and want to read 5 books from the list.
Workaday Reads hosts the Ebook Challenge on her blog. I have a Kindle and love it but I tend to neglect reading ebooks because I love the feel of a pysical book which leads to many awesome ebooks on my reader but I only read a handful. This will change in 2013 because my goal is to read at least 10 ebooks which is the CD level.
In 2013 I will participate in 10 different reading challenges and my own Photochallenge. Some of the books I will be reading might count for more than one challenge so it doesn't feel so intimidating but still, I have a year full of wonderful books ahead of me and looking forward to the experience.
Are you participating in any challenges?
