The Book Vixen is once again hosting the Outdo Yourself challenge, which is a no-brainer to join as I'm constantly trying to read more. I read so much more this year with starting up my book blog than I ever have and I'm gearing up for even more in 2012. My initial goal will be Out of Breath (6-10 more books), considering my year-end total will probably be in the 50s or 60s.
Sarah @ Sarah Reads Too Much will soon be announcing details for an encore of Back to the Classics. Yay! I really loved that challenge. It definitely got me off my behind and in gear to read older books I've always wanted to absorb but don't have the incentive to get to. Can't wait for the new categories!
So that's two challenges I'm signing up for. I think I will stick to a small, manageable number of challenges so I'm not restricted to a book list and have room for my spontaneous side. Maybe two or three more...
As for my 2011 challenges....*drumroll please*...ALL DONE! Yay! I still have a few reviews to write but having read The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway for the last Back to the Classics category in just one sitting, I'm officially finished. Of course, my total for the Outdo Yourself challenge will continue until December 31st at midnight ;)
I'm planning a wrap-up post to conclude and celebrate the end of my 2011 challenges. This is where I need your help. As some of you may already know, this is the first year I've participated in reading challenges (seeing as the blog itself is just 14 months old) and I'm not too sure what this post should be like.
Do you have any ideas or topics of interest that might be good for a challenge wrap-up post?
Also, is it customary to post it near the end of the year or can it go up any time?
Please post ideas in the comments. I look forward to hearing your thoughts :) I'd also love to hear about any 2012 reading challenges you think I'd like to participate in.
