Good Reads Reading Challenge 2013

2013 GRR ChallengeIf you haven’t already, it’s time to sign up to the Good Reads Reading Challenge 2013.

I did the 2012 challenge, and I was a little overly ambitious with 100 books. This year, I’ve put myself down for a rather more conservative, though still ambitious 52. That’s still one book a week. Although sometimes it may well be a novella, but hey, so long as it stands on its own as a work of literature, it’s a book and it counts. Sadly, the same applies to the epic ones – so if I do venture towards that copy of war and peace gathering dust on my shelf, that I keep promising myself I will read, it still only counts as 1 book. Ah well, rules are rules, and you will only be cheating yourself.

In any case, some of the best way to get inspiration is to bury yourself in words, so get reading!

  1. I don’t stand a chance. I barely get one book done a month šŸ˜¦ Too much blog reading XD

    • Hi Lythya. You don’t need to read 52 books, just whatever is a challenging number for you. Having done the Good Reads Challenge 2012, I can say that it’s really satisfying looking back at all the books you’ve read in the past year. Well done on all the blog reading, perhaps there should be a challenge for that as well.

      • What we really need is a constructive criticisme challenge, for all the aspiring writers out there. Now that would set things in motion!

  2. Wow 100 is more than 4 years reading for me at my current pace. Even this year’s 52 target makes my eyeballs hurt šŸ™‚ I hope to read 24. Two a month is about my pace and I count novellas too!

    Happy reading!

    • Yup, 100 was a little over ambitious, 52 is still ambitious. I’m currently 1 behind at the moment. I think novella’s definitely count, it would be mean to not count them methinks ;-). I think it’s just a great way to push oneself into good reading habits, that is, if you like books. Happy reading!
