You might call it an obsession. Maybe even a sickness. I simply cannot get enough of some of the great challenges being hosted in 2011! This is my third (and hopefully last) comprehensive sign-up post.
The Book Junkie’s Bookshelf is hosting the Support Your Local Library Challenge. I participated in that challenge for 2010 and sadly, it looks like I’m going to be one book short of finishing the challenge. I want to do more in 2011 and to utilize my public library more fully, so I’m definitely in for this one again. I made it to 24 books this year, so I’m only signing up for the minimum for the challenge, 30 books.
The Ladybug Reads is hosting a 2011 E-Book Challenge. I participated in and enjoyed this challenge last year, so I’m happy to be participating again this year! I’m in for the “Obsessed” level, which means I have to read 20 ebooks in 2011. I don’t think this one will be too hard since I do read a lot of ebooks.
Sheila at Book Journey is hosting one of the most interesting challenges I’ve ever come across. It’s called the 2011 Where Are You Reading Challenge, and the challenge is to basically read one book set in each of the 50 states in the US, for a total of 50 books. However, every book you read is eligible for this challenge. The way it works is you create a map on Google Maps and then stick a pin for every book you read. It’s a great way to see “where” you read. I’m not sure I’m going to fulfill the 50 states part of the challenge (though I will try), but I find the idea of a reading map fascinating!
