Fran | 11051 comments 2013 Create-Your-Own Reading Challenge

With the year ending, most of us have started looking forward to the new year and have some reading goals we really want to reach.

This is the place to Create-Your-Own-Reading Challenge for 2013.

I've used the acronym SMART to explain how you can put yours together.

SPECIFIC - Sure we have goals and resolutions, but for this challenge you need to be specific on what you will read. Are you going for all classics, books of a specific author, books you already own, etc? You set the parameters, but make sure there is one.

MEASURABLE - Please don't say as many as I can read, please :). Knowing the titles in advance is not required, but you need to put a number of books as your goal. This is a requirement to participate in this challenge.

ATTAINABLE - Be realistic for this challenge. I know how we can go overboard, but you know, how many hours you read in a day. Do not set yourself up to fail. On this note, you are only allowed to have one Create-Your-Own Reading Challenge entry.

REWARDING - A tenet I follow everytime I create and/or join a challenge, is that it should be fun. This is not a punishment, but an activity that you really want to do. You get a better chance of completing it, if you are enjoying yourself.

TIME-BOUND - This challenge is good for the whole year. If you want to set a different start and end date, its up to you, but make sure I can see the duration period of your challenge.

Here is the suggested format:

Nicola | 649 comments These challenges look awesome! I have to revisit mine from last year as I did not finish my version of CLEAR THE FLOOR!
Thanks so much to Fran for starting this challenge off for me - I hope to take over and keep track now.
Good luck everyone! I will check in regularly - and post my own challenge as well.

Nicola | 649 comments I really failed at this challenge last year. The arrival of my tablet and its kindle app kept me downloading new books instead of reading my previous ones. I NEED to work harder on this challenge, so I am repeating it this year. I am sure I have put even more books in my closet, and will add them as I come across them!

Books are an awful lot like bunnies! Apparently they multiply while sitting all by themselves in a basket - who knew?
I will increase my goal to 55, even though I think the basket will continue to multiply.
Challenge Update
12/55 completed

My book basket has overflown to take over my reading corner. This year I challenge myself to clear up this corner by reading the books and either returning them or passing them on to someone else. They are all recommendations from other people. If nothing else, my husband will be pleased that I have begun to clean it up! Then I will work on my basement shelves! (55 books)

Elena Boteva (lenahbkp) | 27 comments Nicola wrote: "Good Luck Elena! Just curious - if you have picked 30, how many do you actually own waiting to be read?"

I don't really have an exact number, but maybe aroun 150 novel-type books, and about 150 more that include cookbooks, fitness books, self-help books, textbooks, etc...

I do have about 300 that I have read, or reread in many cases.
On one hand I don't like having this many unread books, but on the other, I like the idea that when I am looking to read something, I have the option to go to my library and pick either a book I have read, or one that I haven't.
I read fast, but I also buy books all the time, so keeping up sometimes can be a challenge. So when I created this one, I was also thinking about other challenges and stuff like that.
Sorry, sometimes when I start talking (or typing as the case may be) I can't seem to shut up :))

Nicola | 649 comments Love it!! Glad to know I am not the only one with that many books (or who rattles on at times!). My goal is to whittle down my to read pile - but there are SO many good books calling my name every time I enter a store!

Eirene (sleeplessromantics) | 3 comments Challenge Title: Get Your Canada On! (AKA the Canada-Day Long Weekend Read-A-Thon)
Duration: June 29th to July 6th
Number of Books: I'm going to aim for a minimum of 6.
Challenge Description: To celebrate Canada Day (July 1st!) and the long weekend, I've decided to challenge myself by finding and reading Canadian romance authors. Their works don't necessarily have to be set in Canada, but I thought it'd be fun to read those that are set in this country.

Authors who currently live in Canada (even if they're not) or those who have relocated to Canada are also allowed since a lot of us Canadians are from somewhere else. :)

List of Authors I'll Read (Book Titles TBA):
1. Vivian Arend
2. Sex and the Single Earl by Vanessa Kelly Review to come!
3. Slightly Scandalous by Mary Balogh (3.5/5, review here.)
4. Against Her Rules by Victoria Barbour (4.5/5, review here.)
5. Zoe York
6. ???
