13 in ’13 :: reading challenge


It seems, after a #reverb12 prompt asked about out favourite books, that I’m not the only one disappointed about the lack of reading this past year. I thought about how the 50/50 challenge motivated me to read more than I normally would.

And so I propose, a 13/13, 13 books in twenty13, challenge. Read 13 books, of the no-pictures-not-for-small-people variety, in the next 12 months. That’s one every four weeks. Seems do-able, don’t you think?

Simply sign up in the linky below (the URL is optional, so even if you don’t have a blog, you are more than welcome to join in!), and grab the button for your sidebar and/or challenge posts. If you are a blogger, I’d also love if you posted occaissionally about what you are reading, or even come back and comment, and maybe we all might find something new to add to our lists. (and if you would like the banner above, please let me know, and I’ll add some grab-code for that one too.)

Then grab the button:

    I’m in! Great idea! Last year tried to read one a week, but failed at 38! Life gets in the way too often, but think I can manage the 13! Will be good to get some ideas of what others are reading too…thanks for doing this.

    Hi, I joined up a little while ago but notice my name doesn’t have any URL linked to it. Is there any way I can fix that? I’m onto my third book for the year now so going well….I love the summer holidays!
