Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge 2011

Posted December 31st, 2010 by in Uncategorized / 0 comments

  • Runs January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011 (books read prior to 1/1/11 do not count towards the challenge). You can join at anytime. You can sign up on The Book Vixen’s blog.
  • The goal is to outdo yourself by reading more books in 2011 than you did in 2010. See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you. Nothing is set in stone; you can change levels at any time during the challenge.
  • Books can be any format (bound, eBook, audio).
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are fine.
  • You can list your books in advance or list them as you read them. It is not required that you review the books you read for this challenge but feel free to do so.
  • Post this reading challenge on your blog so you can keep a list of the books you’ve read for this challenge. Please include a link back to this post so readers can join the challenge too.
  • You do not have to be a book blogger to participate. You can keep tabs on books you’ve read for this challenge on Goodreads or LibraryThing if you’d like (maybe make a shelf for “Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge”). If you are not on either of those sites then you can list the books you read for this challenge in the comments on my wrap-up post, which will be up at the end of 2011.

     Getting my heart rate up – Read 1–5 more books     
     Out of breath – Read 6–10 more books     
     Breaking a sweat – Read 11–15 more books
     I’m on fire! – Read 16+ more books

I think this challenge is great because I don’t think I will make 100 books so I just would like to outdo myself. I only read about 50 books in 2010 because from Jan-May 2010  I was taking 21 college credits. Which for any one who doesn’t know just how many that is, most people take 12-15 credits in one semester. So I was taking 2-3 more classes than people normally take. So I was at 6 main classes with 2 small credit ones on the side. So honestly I barely had time to sleep let alone read!

I’m going to go for the I’m on Fire! level because since I’m going to have very light school semesters (only 12 credits per semester) for the next year I hope to read more. My job is wanting me to go from a 15 hour work week to close to a 30 hour work week but I still hope to have enough time to get 66+ books done.
