2013 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge


**Challenge complete. See my wrap-up post HERE.**

Dates: 1 January - 31 December, 2013
Hosted by: The Book Vixen

Guidelines (quoted from the Challenge announcement page):
  • The goal is to outdo yourself by reading more books in 2013 than you did in 2012.
  • See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you. You can move up a level as often as you’d like but no moving down.
  • Books can be any format (bound, ebook, audio).
  • Novellas that are at least 100 pages in length, as well as full-length novels, will count for this reading challenge.
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed.
  • You do not have to be a book blogger to participate; you can track your progress on Goodreads or LibraryThing.

Levels:
  1. Getting my heart rate up – Read 1–5 more books 
  2. Out of breath – Read 6–10 more books 
  3. Breaking a sweat – Read 11–15 more books 
  4. I’m on fire! – Read 16+ more books

** I'm signing up at the second level ("Out of breath").
