Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Hosting You Read How Many Books? Reading Challenge

You Read How
Many Books?

hosted by me, here at The Lair

Brittany's getting married! I've had my break and she'll be busy so the challenge is back at The Lair.

Guidelines are pretty simple. You'll have all year to read your books so go ahead and stretch yourself.

1. Choose a Level
  • Level 1: 100 minimum
  • Level 2: 150
  • Level 3: 200
  • Level 4: 250 or more
2. You may move up a level but not down.
3. You don’t need a blog to participate. Feel free to link to a Goodreads shelf or another public profile where everyone can see your books.
4. Reviews are not necessary but a list of books is. There will be a link up for reviews if you wish to post them.
5. All formats allowed as long as the book has an isbn or equivalent and can be purchased/borrowed, the book counts.
6. Individual short stories in a collection and individual books of the Bible do not count.
7. Crossovers from other challenges count - they’d have too!
8. Books started before January 1st, 2016 2017 don’t count.

Sign up below with the link to where you will be keeping up with your books (not your homepage) please!

Whitney Behr said...

I've read close to 80 books this year and would love to make it to 100 in 2017. Thanks for hosting!

Whitney Behr said...

I accidently put my homepage in the linky! The link to my challenge page is: Sorry about that!

Bev Hankins said...

I'm in for 150!

Anna Knight said...

Thanks for hosting! I'm signing up for a bunch of challenges, and hopefully I'll complete them! I'm going for 100 because I've never read 100 books in a year, but I can feel that 2017 is going to be my year! :)

J. Hooligan said...

I'm going to wimp out and start at 100... which is about 150 less than I read this year.

essie said...

I used to read a lot, but lately I've barely touched any books... Time to change that with this challenge! (signed up for the 100-book-goal because I am picky about my books and might not be able to find any more than that without extensive research........)

dollycas aka Lori said...

Will be trying for Level 3.

K Eckert said...

Natalie Taub said...

I'm in college so I don't have much time for pleasure reading, but since I have breaks, I'll try for level 1!

Natalie Taub said...

I just noticed I have two links. As you can see, it's the same link, but I would prefer to keep my full name for the purpose of the challenge. Thanks! I also made a specific shelf. That link is
