I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Reading Challenge Young Readers and Read to Me

I love picture books! My "baby" may be over 20 years old now but I purchased a new picture book just last month. And yeah, he rolls his eyes when I say "my baby" ;)

I have a perpetual challenge going and thought I'd add these two challenges to 2011 to help me with it.

Young Readers
Jan 1 to Dec 31

  • Read 12 Children's Books
    Think of this as referring to the "E" (Easy) and "J" (Juvenile or Junior) sections of the library.
  • You do not have to have a blog.
  • You may keep in touch and leave links to your reviews. *But* no reviews are required.
  • A list is not required. Choose what you like. Choose as you go. Or plan it all out now. Whatever you want.
  • Sign up by leaving a comment.

  • Read to Me
    January 1 to Dec 31

  • The objective of the Read to Me Challenge is to read with the kiddos in your life and/or enjoy picture books in general.
  • Books must be ones written expressly for children ages 9 and under. Board books, early readers, picture books, etc.
  • Print or eBook format is acceptable.
  • Anyone can join. You don’t have to be a blogger, and you don’t have to live in the United States. Open worldwide.
  • You do not have to have an blog to participate.
  • You can join at anytime. Deadline to join is November 20, 2011. (not 2010 you still have PLENTY of time to sign up!)

  • All of the books for "Young Readers" also count towards "Read to Me" but not the other way around! There are several levels for Read to Me and I choose to be Board Book and will read 12 books. The ones that don't count towards "Young Reader", plus any read over 12, will be listed from #13....

    1. Kekula
    2. A Bed Case of Stripes
    3. If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
    4. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
    5. If a Dog Could Blog

    Yay! So happy to have you on board! I'm excited to see what books you read throughout the year and what you think of them. It's going to be a fantastic year! Sorry for taking so long to get around to everyone, but I'm making it...slowly but surely. :o)
