- The TBR Pile Challenge - self-explanatory (but allow me to explain anyway). I have to clear the TBR pile, and this challenge worked great for me in 2011, so I look forward to clearing more books in 2012.
- My personal challenge, the Around the World Challenge - this can partly be addressed by the TBR pile but will involve the library, which is OK, it is still a focused list. Feel free to join me in this challenge if you'd like!
- The Mixing It Up Challenge - this one is going to help me clear the TBR pile, and although I will have to go to the library for a couple of the categories, again, I think that's OK since most of the books are here on hand.
- The Color Coded Reading Challenge - just found out this one will be hosted again in 2012, hooray! I actually have several books on hand that will work, and this also fits into reading the book series that I had planned to check out.
I will, however, try to read more than the 166 books I read in 2011, try to read outside my comfort zone, and possibly keep track of books that cost $1 or less just out of curiosity.
One other note - when I first started this blog I did it in haste and couldn't think up a really clever name, plus, I didn't consider that I'd still be doing this in 2012. Of course now it's kind of outdated. I thought about starting a new blog called "Reading 2012" but the idea of having to start all over with my followers and etc. seemed like too much of a hassle. I think instead I'll modify the name of the blog slightly to reflect the continuation of my reading tracking. In any case, I am looking forward to a new year of reading!
