Photobucket




• The challenge will run from January 1, 2012 – December 31, 2012.

You have to read 10 books about mythology, whether they are Norse, Greek, Egyptian, etc.


__________________________________________________________________________

Have you read a book by an author that you really enjoyed and felt moved  to read another of the author’s works? Or are you thinking to give an  author another try even if you didn’t like your first taste of their  work? If yes, then this challenge is for you! You’re going to go back  for seconds of an author that you’ve only read once. The great thing  about this challenge is that it’s not just for your  second in a series  books, but the second time you’ve read an author as well.
(This challenge has previously been hosted at J. Kaye’s Book Blog, Royal Reviews, and A Few More Pages)
Interested in joining the fun? Here are the guidelines:
1.  Anyone can join. You don’t need a blog to  participate. If you’re not  a blogger, you can post your reviews at a  review site like Goodreads,  LibraryThing,  or Shelfari and  link them up here.
2. There are four levels to choose from in  this challenge:
Just  a spoonful - Read 3 books that are 2nd in a series or the second  time you’ve read the author. 
A few more bites - Read 6 books that are 2nd in a series or  the second time you’ve read the author.
A full plate - Read 12 books that are 2nd in a series or the  second time you’ve read the author.
All you can eat - Read 20 books (or more) that are 2nd in a  series or the second time you’ve read the author.
You can list your books in advance or just put them in a wrap up  post.  If you list them, feel free to change them as  the mood takes  you. Any  genre counts. Any book format counts.
3. The challenge runs from January 1 through December 31, 2012. 4. You can join anytime between now and December 31, 2012.
5. A post will be created here where you can link-up your  reviews and visit the reviews of other participants.
6. If you’re a blogger, write up a sign-up post that includes  the URL to  this post so that others can join in. Feel free to  use the button! You can grab the code you need from the box in the  right sidebar.
If you write up a sign-up post, enter the direct link to that  post when you sign up here so we can find it easily. Otherwise, link  away!

2012 Reading Challenge


 

• I'm pretty sure most people know what this challenge is about!  My goals 200.  I asked my mom how many books she thinks I read in a year, and she said 350, so I went MUCH lower then that so I'll actually make it:)

I may enter more, but for now this is it:)

wow 200 is still a lot, although I guess when I was still at school I guess I got to read a lot, always escaping into a book. Good luck with the challenges!

Good luck with all your challenges! I entered 9 so I'm going crazy reading, but it's all good. I signed up for 200 books on Good Reads too! Happy Reading.
