Reading Challenges for 2012

I love to read. I really do. However, I've really fallen off the reading wagon this last year. This year, I've decided to sign up for some reading challenges which hopefully will keep me motivated.

Please click on any of the links to go to the sign up page for that challenge and to read the rules. I love the supernatural, so of course, I'm on board for this 2012 Witches and Witchcraft Reading Challenge

I need to be shaken out of the type of books I normally read, so this challenge will be good for me. 2012 Book Blogger Recommendation Challenge

Mystery and Suspense Reading Challenge --Whodunnits are my all time favorite type of book. I love trying to figure out "whodunnit" before I get to the end.

Southern Lit Challenge --Books set in the southern states. What can I say? I'm a southern girl.

2012 100+ Books in a year reading challenge --Wow. 100 books in a year. I'm up for it. I am.

This seems like a lot of books for 2012. Luckily, many of these books will cross over onto other lists, so not as many books to read as you'd think. Well, except for that one for 100 books... that's about two books per week. I feel a trip to the library coming on.

Oh, and I'll be doing two poetry reading challenges:
2012 Fearless Poetry Exploration Challenge
Read More/Blog More Poetry Challenge.

I really need to read more poetry. Last year, I read two books in March and flipped through an anthology this past summer. That was it. So this year I decided to amp up my poetry reading.

Thanks for stopping by :)

I would like to be able to read 100 books in a year, but I usually average only about one per week, sometimes two.

Please keep us posted on your progress!!! :D

I have SOOOOOO many books on my bookshelf that I still have to read so I think I may just need to sign up for some of these challenges!!
I am a huge fan of yard sales and book sales and buying books at Goodwill when you can find them for under $1 so I have a huge amount of books that still need to be read and I have been lacking in the reading department lately with work, the holidays, my friends wedding and I have been a computer nerd the last couple months just spending all my free time on here so i need to sit down on the couch and read!!!

I joined the European Reading Challenge as well and I'm browsing a little through the participant's list. I'm so interested in what everyone's reading for this challenge! Like you I love to travel as well, that's why I choose this one. Even if I'm European myself, there's so much to learn about the world around me :)
Well, I will come back to learn more, happy reading till then!
