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!)

An Embarrassment of Riches? I'll say!

An Embarrassment of Riches TBR
Reading Challenge

Hosted by Planet Books
Sign up here, through Jan 8

RULES: To be considered a TBR book,
  • you must own it prior to Jan 1, 2013.
  • The book can count toward other challenges, as well.
  • It can be fiction or nonfiction, poetry or play, audiobook–as long as it is a book.
  • This is not a picky challenge–just about reading the riches we already own.
  • On the last day of each month I will post an entry where you can say how many TBRs you read that month, titles, and whether you liked them or not.
  • Full-blown reviews not required. You can list them in comments or link back to your own blog or page where they are listed.
  • At the end of the year I will have pretty badges for all levels, and if I haven’t learned to create them by myself, hopefully somebody else will make them for me.

There are five levels of accomplishment (and a bonus challenge) in the Embarrassment of Riches TBR Reading Challenge
  1. Copper: Read 6 TBR books between Jan 1 and Dec 31 2013
  2. Bronze: Read 12 TBR books between Jan 1 and Dec 31 2013
  3. Silver: Read 24 TBR books between Jan 1 and Dec 31 2013
  4. Gold: Read 36 TBR books between Jan 1 and Dec 31 2013
  5. Platinum: Read 50 TBR books between Jan 1 and Dec 31 2013

Bonus Challenge! The same levels are also available for digital samples. If you are like me, you also have a quizillion samples you’ve downloaded onto your e-reader. Culling through samples and deciding whether to keep reading or not is a separate challenge with all five levels and the same year-end prize–a special badge.

Wait! My ebooks don't count as my TBR list? Oh, she said samples. I'm okay and will go for Platinum and read 50 books from my tbr pile during the year.
