2012 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge

2012 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge

This is the second year I do this Challenge and I’m so looking forward! I need some kick in my behind :D. So far I read 31 in 2011, thats 2 more than 2010. So my goal for 2012 is to read at least 32 but would like to reach 50 (this time for real).


  • Runs January 1, 2012 – December 31, 2012 (books read prior to 1/1/12 do not count towards the challenge). You can join at anytime. Sign up on The Book Vixen’s blog.
  • The goal is to outdo yourself by reading more books in 2012 than you did in 2011. See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you. Nothing is set in stone; you can change levels at any time during the challenge.
  • Books can be any format (bound, eBook, audio).
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed.
  • Grab the reading challenge button and post this reading challenge on your blog to track your progress. Please include a link back to this sign-up post so others can join the reading challenge too. You do not have to be a book blogger to participate; you could track your progress on Goodreads or LibraryThing.
