2013 BOOK CHALLENGE! Are you in?
 
Well, it's official. 2013 starts tomorrow. I know we've talked a bit about starting a 2013 book challenge so here it is!!

Not sure how to organize this. Would welcome any thoughts as to how to keep the thread current and prevent it from getting lost.

Everyone that wants to participate should state their book goal # and maybe the book/s they are most excited to read in 2013.

Maybe we can keep track of our books by editing our original thread? Keep a running list of titles that we've finished?

I cannot WAIT to see what new treasures we'll discover this new year!! :cloud9:

I'll start...

I plan on reading 30 books in 2013 (I usually read on average 2 per month so this will stretch me somewhat).

I have 54 currently on my "to-read" list though. Grrrrr... Just not enough time!!

The book I am most excited about reading in 2013 is Rush Home Road.... oh and Defending Jacob. Two books that have had consistently good reviews and that have been on my list for quite some time now.

I'm also looking forward to finishing the Harry Potter series once and for all!!!

Reading more is a great New Year "New Me" Goal! Count me in. Maybe a book a month for me.... I tend to read sporadically!

runsandjumps 12-31-2012 03:46 PM

I'll join. Goal is to read 100 books. No titles in mind, however I need to read different genres for sure. I am stuck in a rut. I usually finish a book a week, sometimes more. I am a very proud bookworm.

3smithboys 12-31-2012 03:58 PM

Sure, I'm in! I love to read...I just finished The Fault in Our Stars because it was recommended on the other thread and downloaded 11/22/63 and 77 Days in September. So those 2 are next on my list.

I've already read (and loved Gone Girl) and read and liked Dark Places (that one just took more time to get into, but once I did it was really good too...) So I think that I will read Sharp Objects, too.

I have The Book Thief on my Kindle too.... I downloaded that for one of my vacay books this summer, but never got around to reading it. I know that it is a must read book!

I think these should keep me busy for a bit... :goodvibes

ETA: I missed that we were supposed to put our goal amount of books - I think I will set my goal at 30. I love to read, but during the school year I don't read as much as I would like. I do make up for it in the summer!

nancycg56 12-31-2012 04:11 PM

Count me in!

My goal again this year is 50 books. I read 30 last year so I am getting closer and one of these years, I will hit it :)

I will be happy just to be able to get some of the books off my kindle so I don't have anything in mind that I want to read in 2013.

RunningGirl 12-31-2012 04:16 PM

I'm in for 40 books. Next up is Great Gatsby - want to reread it before the movie comes out.

teacherlisa1978 12-31-2012 04:20 PM

Great idea! My goal is 24 books. I'm most excited to finish the Outlander series and some more Gillian Flynn

StephMK 12-31-2012 04:20 PM

Can I join? I absolutely love to read but go through spells where I don't get any done. It's so hard to put a good book down then I end up staying up half the night!

I'm going to go with 20 books. One for each month then extras in the summer when I have more time.

wiigirl 12-31-2012 04:22 PM

I am in. :thumbsup2

My Goal: 15 books for fun, 10 books for work.

keenercam 12-31-2012 04:23 PM

I'm in. My goal is 52 books. Reading them shouldn't be too hard, but keeping track of what I've read might be difficult. LOL!

*tinker*bell* 12-31-2012 04:37 PM

Oooh I love this idea! Great New Years resolution, I'll set my goal for 45 books... I have no idea what I'll read need to hit the bookstore!

Simba's Mom 12-31-2012 05:28 PM

I'm in-I love to read also! My problem has been that I tend to forget the names of the books I read almost as soon as I'm done (I've been known to even have to look up the title of what I'm reading), but I just got a Kindle, so my books will be stored on it after I'm done. I'm down for 65 books. I've just got one question-what about books in progress on January 1? I have a book that I'm about half way thru, so I'll finish it in 2013. Does that count as a 2013 book or not? Either way doesn't matter, I just need to know. But no fair laughing at the "junk" I read-I'm one of these romance, cozy mystery type readers, nothing too deep.

Swimnoid 12-31-2012 05:57 PM

I'm in. My goal for 2012 was 75 and I read 79 (unless I finish my current one tonight).

I think I'll keep it at 75 for 2013.

I keep track by using the goodreads website.
