I've signed up for the Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge, running from January 1-December 31, 2011.
This is the first time I'm participating in a reading challenge. I've decided to plunge into a few for next year, but so far this is the only one open to start next year I'm interested in. If you hear of any others taking place starting in January, leave a comment & link below.
The purpose of Outdo Yourself is to read more books in 2011 than you did in 2010. There are 4 goal levels to choose from. I've highlighted my current choice:
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
As you can see, I'm quite gung-ho about it! I have TBR stacks to plow through (who doesn't?), but I like having a purpose and a set focus for what to read, so I'm hoping to participate in some challenges that will offer interesting themes.
