I have seen everywhere on the blogosphere this year that many readers had set a reading goal they tried to reach: to read 50, 100 or even more books in 2010. I neer had such a challenge, but this year when I kept track of all the books I was reading thanks to my blog I realized this would be fun to try to push myself to outdo what I have read in 2010, and that's when I saw the Book Vixen's Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge! It was definitely for me, so of course I signed up :-D
You can read the rules and sign up here, but basically the challenge is a personalised one: you challenge yourself to outdo your own reading performance of 2010, so no external pressure: if you read 12 books in 2010 you could set the goal to read 15 in 2011, do it at your own pace just read.
There are 4 different levels:
Getting my heart rate up – Read 1–5 more books
Out of breath – Read 6–10 more books
Breaking a sweat – Read 11–15 more books
I’m on fire! – Read 16+ more books
And I'm aiming for I’m on fire! I plan to read at least 16 more books than I read in 2010.
So cheers and good luck to everyone! :-)
