It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Just how many books do I really need to read during 2012?

Once again, I've joined too many challenges, have new ones ready to join, and others I'll be joining that aren't 12 month challenges. My Reading Challenge Addict page has 20 challenges listed and I must complete 16+ to complete the challenge. Good thing "overlaps" are allowed!

IF I read one book for each requirement without the overlaps, I would need to read ...... 320-330 books!

WHAT! Even with 150 being any book, that still leaves over 250 more books.


I thought I would be able to list them but who am I kidding, that's a long list! Let's go with the challenges where I've already chosen the books.

Book list:
Brave New World
Hunger Games
Hidden Empire
The Once and Future King
Magic Kingdom for Sale-Sold
The View from the Cherry Tree
Eyes of Prey
311 Pelican Court
A Snake in the Glass
The Fairy Tales Detective
Ancient Awakenings
The Call of the Canyon
Every Thing On It
Lost in a Good Book
The City and the Stars
Kiss of Snow
Manufactured Identity
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian
Harry Potter series
Chronicles of Narnia
Tomb of Endearment
Carriage House
The Cricket in Times Square
Murder on Monday

Not too bad, there are enough overlaps that 38 books read will complete nine challenges!

Are you ready for 2012?

Wow, that's a lot of books! Looking forward to reading your thoughts about them. :)

I haven't even thought about how many books I'd have to read if I read different books for every challenge I've signed up for. I don't think I want to. :-) Fortunately, the books I've chosen so far overlap all over the place.

You seem so organized. I am still on the fence as to whether i will join any 2012 challenges. Have fun/

I think I am only doing a few challenges next year, as this year was pretty much a (shining but) bad example of overcommitment.

Lucky you, to be looking forward to The Once and Future King. It is one of my all-time favorites!
