  6. This is so NOT going to happen . My challenge for 2011 was and is 250 books. Thankfully I'm still 3 books ahead, but I have 4 reviews to write and post so my reading will suffer for a day or three. I'll stay at 250 for next year thank you very much. LOL

  7. I participated in this challenge this year and it's kept me in line so I'm really looking forward to participating next year as well.

  8. Seeming as I just became interested in book blogging earlier this year, this will be the first time I've ever signed up for a challenge. I'm amazed by the awesomeness of the book blogging world every day.

  9. What an awesome post! I did this wrong the first time, so you'll see my name twice in the list. Sorry!

  11. I'm so glad you're doing this one again, I've had fun with it this year.

  12. I'm going to try to read 16+ more books than this year which could put me at 236 books to read if I get to 220 like I plan this year. Love this challenge!

  13. I'm going to try to be on fire!!! LOL But I already have such a high goal that it will start getting really hard to beat in the next couple years! Also a question, when I signed up I put my goodreads profile but now I just started a blog so can I change my link? Or should I just put both and keep track on both?

    ReplyDelete
  14. @Jennifer Messerschmidt

    Change your link. No need to keep track on both sites. Just make sure you do a blog post on your blog for this challenge and link to that post (don't link to your blog's main page). Let me know if you run into any snags.

  15. Nothing better than a reason to push myself; I'm sooo in!

  16. I'm a reading fanatic so of course I'm in!

  18. I don't have a blog, but I left my goodreads account link in the sign up section under "BookChick." So for future reference I chose the "Breaking a sweat" level and plan to read 15 more books, bringing my total for 2012 to 100 books. I'm hoping I finally reach that goal in the New Year! Good luck to all who signed up! Let's hope 2012 brings many more good reads and no apocalypse or end-of-the-world shenanigans! Lol! Happy reading! =)

  19. Count me in, please - I'm going for the "out of breath level", to bring me up to 40 from 34.
    May I count books that I began in 2011 but will finish in 2012? One of my challenges is "Books I Started But Didn't Finish", and I'm hoping to complete four such books in 2012.

  20. Hopefully, after a dismal reading year in 2011, this will give me the boost I need to get reading again in 2012! Can't wait to get started. :)

  22. I was all looking forward to this, and then realized that in order to outdo myself, I'd have to read almost a book a day...so I think I'll have to withdraw this year, but should be back next year!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I started out with a low goal and actually read 14 books over my goal last year!! I'm anxious to see how I do this year! Thanks so much hosting!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I don't think I did too bad last year, but I definitely could've done better. So I'm excited to do this!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks for hosting this challenge again this year. I managed to outdo myself by 17 books in 2011. This year, I'm just aiming to outdo myself by 1 book. It's going to be a challenge for sure!

  28. Love this challenge...always try to outdo myself every year reading. We'll see if I can do it again. :D

  29. This challenge is perfect for me. I love to see if I can beat my last year's reading goal. This year I'm trying for 60 books, 2 more than last year. I guess that's the "Getting Your Heartrate Up" level.

  30. I just started my book blog today and I also just signed up for this challenge. Thanks for hosting!

    ReplyDelete
  31. This should be easy - I just graduated college in December so I have so much more time to read! (Stuff I want to read, that is.) Thanks for hosting!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm looking forward in outdoing myself in my reading this year. The perfect challenge for me!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I NEED to outdo myself- my reading last year was pathetic! Glad there's an official challnge spot to update with other readers!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Already behind. But enjoying the books I have read so far!

  35. I'm over halfway through the year. Should I go for it? Don't know if there is a prize but it's wonderful you qualify non signed-up reads from January 1st. You also allow multiple challenge content, which makes my task easy! :-) Pleased to introduce myself to you and everyone, 'Book Vixen'! http://cmriedel.wordpress.com/2012/06/27/my-home-and-native-land/

  37. I'm well past where I was at this point last year and very excited that I am close to my goal as well. Pretty sure that the four days I have at Thanksgiving will get me over the finish line!
