2013 Challenges

Last year, I joined way too many challenges. It was my first year and I wanted to challenge myself. I buckled under pressure; that means I was not successful in completing most of the challenges. This year, I’m going to choose only 10-13 challenges.

  1. E-book Challenge by Workaday Reads
  2. Books in Translation by The Introverted Reader
  3. Sookie Stackhouse Reading Challange by Darlene’s Nook Book
  4. Dystopia Reading Challenge by Blog of Erised
  5. 50 States Challenge by Book Obsessed



I really want to finish the E-book Challenge hosted by Workaday Reads so I’m signing up for it again.


  1. Floppy disk – 5 ebooks
  2. CD – 10 ebooks
  3. DVD – 25 ebooks
  4. Memory stick – 50 ebooks
  5. Hard drive – 75 ebooks
  6. Server – 100 ebooks
  7. Human brain – 150 ebooks

I’m going to go for the same level, Hard Drive-75 ebooks. I read 53 ebooks last year so I think it is doable.
