A new year means a new set of Reading Challenges. I toyed with the idea of foregoing challenges this year, but I just can't help myself. So, without further ado, here are the challenges I am going to do this year:
- The Much Ado About Shakespeare Challenge (which has already started)
- The Centuries Challenge
- The What's In A Name Challenge
- The Colorful Reading Challenge
- The Book Awards IV Challenge
- The World Religion Challenge
- The GLBT Challenge
- The Decades 2010 Challenge
- The 2010 Chunkster Challenge
- The RYOB Challenge
Now, I know what you are thinking. That is a lot of challenges for a guy who was thinking about foregoing challenges this year. But, like I said, I can't help myself. The challenges last year pushed me to read books I might never have read before. I am hoping that will be true this year too, especially the GLBT Challenge.
I am happy to have several repeat challenges: The What's In A Name, Colorful Reading, Book Awards, Decades, and Chunkster Challenges are all ones that I completed last year. The rest are new to me.
The challenge I am most excited about is the RYOB challenge. I have so many books on my shelves that I have yet to read, so this is a great challenge. I am committing to read 36 of my own books this year, that is 3 per month. I hope that fulfilling the other challenges using my own books this year will make it easy to complete the RYOB Challenge.
