I don't know if you noticed. Now the groups have an option for a group-wide challenge. At first I was going to use our Mega-Challenge for this. But then I decided, why not just have a general reading challenge, but with the Dangerous Hero theme.

So here it is....

Dangerous Hero General Reading Challenge 2012
Duration: January 1- December 31, 2012
Description: Challenge yourself to read as many dangerous hero themed books this year as you can. Set your own goal. Maybe 25, Maybe 50, Maybe 100. It's your own goal.

If you join the challenge, it will keep track of how many you read for you.

Here is a link to the challenge page:

http://www.goodreads.com/challenges/8...

I hope you participate.

Nita (gillnit) Sounds like fun. I think I added myself correctly to the challenge. I am challenging myself to read 50 books with dangerous heroes.

Questions - do we still have to post and update on this thread?


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Wants to Read More) (gatadelafuente) | 9694 comments Mod
You don't have to post here. If you want to, you can. Just maybe a quick update, if anything. I might list mine here though.

Amanda (kittiescardigansbooks) | 207 comments I'm in for 50 - although I might up it to 75. We'll see how it goes!


message 15: by TarynXO (new)

TarynXO | 20 comments I'm in for 50. Do they have to be completely different heros everytime? Or can be same hero, but different books? Just so I know :)


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Wants to Read More) (gatadelafuente) | 9694 comments Mod
Each book counts separately, so you can read different books with the same hero, Taryn XO.


message 17: by TarynXO (new)

TarynXO | 20 comments perfect thank you!


message 18: by Janet (last edited Feb 19, 2012 11:40AM) (new)

Janet (janetlopez) | 6 comments After I've finished the book how do I credit for the read in my challenge. I'm newly active on GR so please forgive my ignorance. I thought that I was to name one of my bookshelves for the challenge and put the books there as I finish them. I did that and I'm still showing zero books read. What did I do wrong?

Janet, go back to the sign up page, follow the link above. Click on update your entry. It should show what the name of your shelf is on there. You need to add the book to that shelf for it to count it towards your challenge.

Lady Danielle, that's what I did. I just verified that I entered the bookshelf name 'Dangerous Heroes' as the bookshelf for the challenge. I then went to my books and the book I read is listed in that bookshelf as being read with the date that I finished. It's still not giving me credit for having read the book for the challenge. I feel so stupid. :(


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Wants to Read More) (gatadelafuente) | 9694 comments Mod
Let's try something else. Go back to that update your entry page and change the name of the shelf to something else, like Dangerous Hero Challenge. Click save, and then go to the book you've read and add it to that shelf and see if that helps. If not, we might have to have you go to the Goodreads Feedback group for assistance.

Lady Danielle, It worked! Thank you for your very patient help.


message 23: by Jill (new)

Jill | 294 comments I am in for 50. I have to read 400 books this year surely I will manage 50 of them to have dangerous hero's in them :-)

Wow, Jill. That's awesome you are able to read 400 books a year.


message 26: by Jill (new)

Jill | 294 comments Well I haven't before, but that's my challenge to myself. I have read 70 odd so far so on track. Lets hope I can keep it up.


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Wants to Read More) (gatadelafuente) | 9694 comments Mod
70 is outstanding. You go!


message 28: by Janet (new)

Janet (janetlopez) | 6 comments If I read a book that is loaned to me do I add it to my bookshelf to count towards my reading challenge? Even though I don't own the book?

I don't understand how the bookshelves work. I thought they were for listing books that I owned. But obviously, that won't work for the reading challenge. I'm confused.

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Wants to Read More) (gatadelafuente) | 9694 comments Mod
For 2012 yearly challenges, any books you read during the year of 2012 count. It doesn't matter if you own them or not. You can create shelves for whatever you want. Some people create owned book shelves and wish-list, or even library borrowed books. That's entirely up to you how you want to set up your shelves. For the purposes of this challenge, you designate a specific shelf and when you finish a book, add it to that shelf, and it counts towards the challenge.


message 30: by Janet (new)

Janet (janetlopez) | 6 comments Thanks!


Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ | 152 comments I see that there are some serious readers...70 already?
I'm only going for a sedate 40 but hope to get around 70 by the end of the year.

That's 70 , any subject, books. My personal challenge to myself to read 400, some have been novellas that only took me an hour to read, some graphic novels. I hope I can keep this up:-)


Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ | 152 comments Ho, I though they were full lenght books. Still, it is pretty impressive.


message 34: by Jill (new)

Jill | 294 comments Thanks :-)


Awilk -never sleeps-  (awilk) | 98 comments I am in. Although I started I haven't joined in properly. I will start with aiming for 50.


message 36: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (luigigirlnz) | 2 comments Are we counting re-reads or just new books? I constantly re-read books I have accummulated. I have already started my challenge but wasn't sure if I can add these dangerous heros in too.


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Wants to Read More) (gatadelafuente) | 9694 comments Mod
You can count any book you read during the year of 2012, even if it is a reread. You would have to go back and add those books to your challenge shelf.

Thanks :D I will wait before I start adding them since there are so many great books coming out this year and I want to see if I can do all "fresh" books :-)

Dani (dani_marie) I am new to Goodreads and to this group. I am reading the Black Dagger Brotherhood right now. I would love to do this challenge. Not sure if I have done it right. Can someone let me know please. Thanks

Hi Dani and welcome! Go to this link and sign up (http://www.goodreads.com/challenges/8...). You basically say how many books you want to read and create a shelf for them. When you finish the book, add it to the shelf you created. Did I answer your question?
