Reading Challenges 2011 - I Challenge You!

Weekly upkeep of a blog, as I've learned, is a difficult task! It's hard to keep things interesting, unique and relevant to the audience. In my search for the next great blog topic, I discovered the multiple "Reading Challenges" online. Avid bloggers from all over have imposed challenges on their blog's followers, and since it's still early in 2011, I've decided to challenge you!

My challenge is a combination of two challenges that I've seen: the A-Z Challenge, and the "Reading from my Shelves" Challenge.

The rules are as follows:

• Read a book with a title that begins with each letter of the alphabet.

• If you have a book that has been sitting on your bookshelf, unread, that book takes priority. For example, I've had The Time Traveler's Wife sitting on my bookshelf for a while, so that would be my book for the letter T.

• If you have a blog -- blog about it! If not, leave us a comment on this blog, and let us know what you read and if you liked it.

• If you read a book you enjoyed, suggest it to someone else!

• You have until the end of December 2011 to complete this challenge... Hopefully you can succeed!

If you choose to sign up for the challenge, leave your name and URL below!

If this challenge does not interest you for whatever reason, a simple search for “2011 Reading Challenges” on Google will provide you with a whole list of other challenges that surely will! Also, check out http://www.goodreads.com/which will help you keep track of books you might be interested in, books you intend to read and books you have already read. Registration is quick and painless!

Best of Luck!



  1. Great idea Jordan! I'm in!

  2. Great idea! And The Time Traveller's Wife is a great book! Is there a way to sign up if you don't have a URL?

  3. Kristy, I changed the form so anyone (with or without their own URL) is able to sign up! :)
