Other 2012 Reader Challenges #7: 2012 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge Hosted by The Book Vixen

Last year I read 65 books.  That’s pretty incredible compared to my previous track record ever since I started college.  I actually tacked on an English degree in college so I would have an excuse to read more fiction, but yet I never came close to 65 books in a year.  So what in the world compelled me to sign up for 100 books on the Goodreads self-challenge?  I have no idea.  It felt like the right number for this year. 

Anyway to tie into that self-challenge, I’ve joined up the 2012 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge hosted by The Book Vixen because I do plan on out-doing myself indeed.

Challenge: To read more books than you did in 2011


  1. Runs from January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012 with any books read prior to the first of the year not counting.  You can join up anytime on The Book Vixen’s blog.
  2. Books can be of any format and can count across challenges.  Re-reads also count towards your final number.

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

Yep, I plan to set myself on fire, reading 16+ more books than I did last year.  Challenge accepted!
