I had a blast with my reading challenges for 2011 so in 2012 the trend will continue. I have, however, done my best to avoid the ones I had an easy time with last year and locate some ones that might require a bit more effort on my part.
I will be keeping track of my progress on the 2012 page located under the Reading Challenges tab up at the top of this blog. I have also learned from my mistakes and set more reasonable goals. Should I exceed them, I will try for higher levels.
Right now, I plan on participating in the…
All the Books of Pern Challenge – I have never read a Dragonriders of Pern book let alone a trilogy. But it’s about time I did so. I’m striving for Level Blue: Read the original Pern trilogy plus the Harper Hall trilogy (or any 6).
Horror/Thriller Reading Challenge – I really never seem to read a lot of Horror outside of Lovecraft and last year was no exception. I really enjoyed the Book Chick City‘s challenge last year, but since it allowed for Urban Fantasy and Horror, I pretty much just read Urban Fantasy. I’m striving for Level Carousel: Read 11-20 books.
Nordic Challenge – In 2011, I did a great job of meeting all of my challenges save for one. The Nordic Challenge. So it is back again. I’ll be working towards Level Freya: Read 3-5 books.
Sir Terry Pratchett Reading Challenge – I know, I know. Like I need an excuse to read Discworld books. But I still have Snuff, Making Money, and Unseen Academicals to read. So hopefully this challenge will help. If nothing else, the books will also count towards…
Unread Book Challenge – The goal of this is to read more of the books I own without buying more of them. I have no doubt that I will buy more books… But it would be pretty cool to read the ones I bought not too long ago with every intention of actually taking a closer look at.
