A Reading Challenge

Posted by on January 10, 2011

I’ve always loved reading. I come from a family of bookworms, and started devouring books  at an early age. So when I saw the post on Falcata Times about the reading challenges at Book Chick City, it caught my interest straight away.

There are three challenges – read 100 books, read 12 Mystery/Suspense books, and read 24 Horror/Urban Fantasy novels, each by the end of 2011. You can combine these, so the 12/24 genre specific books will contribute towards the 100 book challenge. For more details, I’ve included slinkies below, or you can use the Challenge adverts shown on the side bar.

100 Books in 2011

12 Mystery/Suspense Books in 2011

24 Horror / Urban Fantasy Books in 2011.

Averaging out at two books per week, this may prove tricky, and is definitely contrary to my “get more fresh air” goal for this year! However I can see a great deal of enjoyment coming from this. There is also the opportunity to post reviews, so it will also be interesting to see what other participants are reading.

There is also a Stephen King Challenge which I may sign up for – I only re-read the Dark Tower series a couple of months ago, otherwise this challenge would have been perfect – but a reshuffle of my TBR list just might give me the minimum six books to have a go.

So, anyone else joining in?
