Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) This challenge will have the same concept as last year's 12x12. However, it's completely up to you how many categories you want to complete! Whether it be 2, 5, 10, or a full 13.

Keep in mind that for each category you must read 13 books.

Rules:
~Any book will count, rereads included.
~Books must be finished between or on January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013 to count.
~Each book can only count for one category.

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Special Notes/ETAs:

~You don't have to list your categories before posting the books you're going to read, like I have below.

~If you do a large amount of categories and put them all in one post, you might run out of characters; you might want to split them up into 2 posts like I have below.

~If you choose to do Alphabet Soup, the goal is to try and read the letters of the alphabet with 13 books. One for the author's first name, and one for their last. If you read a Sarah Dessen book, and then read Lemony Snicket, one S will be "invisible" because of the S you've already read. However, you can still list the Lemony Snicket book under Alphabet Soup to get credit for the L.

Melissa T (melissasmidnightmusings) I'm in with 10 categories. I also have a challenges page set up on my blog which I update weekly. It will have this same challenge (I'm working on the page, it'll be posted Jan 1st) Would anyone mind if I just created my own member challenge folder and then just listed the link to my blog challenge page rather than having to crosspost links every week?
