Reading Challenge 2012!!!

Last year my now EXcoworker and I challenged one another to read 52 books by dec. 3hp1…in other words a book a week. But after completing this so called challenge we realized 52 books is less than what we typically read. So I decided it was time to spice things up. Neglecting the obvious beyond hectic schedule I have with working full time and going to school, I suggested we read 104 books in the year 2012(2 books a week!) No repeats, meaning the book can only be counted once a year. I’m very excited to get reading I have stacks upon stacks of books that I’m receiving from friends. I figure the best way to ensure I stay onto of my reading is to keep track via blog. So we will see how that goes. My goal is to read a book a day in January, with that being my ‘break’ time. Giving me plenty of cushion room for when school starts back up. So Amanda I hope your ready! Because the journey is about to begin! Btw how will we swap books this go around?!?! Lame! Your too far away.

For anyone wanting to join in on the challenge here are the rules:
*starting 1-1-12 through12-31-12 read a grand total of 104 books
*books can be reread but may only be counted one time
*no cheats(green eggs and ham so does not count!)(read age appropriateish books(I will be reading Peter pan))
*the Bible CAN count (I read The Story last year…as long as it is read from start to finish like any other book it counts)
*books for class also may count(obviously not a math text book, but if one reads Shakespeare obviously that counts)
*HAVE FUN this is not about a contest(well for us it gets that way lol) it’s a way to ensure we feed our minds:)
*it’s about quality not quantity…see no cheats above though when your mind becomes word soup and you just can’t take another book that is when you pull out Peter pan, Harry potter, the jungle book, etc to ease the mind with fun back into the read till you burst mode.
Now it’s time to enjoy hot chocolate, and a bubble bath, in a few short weeks I will have books to join me!
