2012 Reading Goals

Given my new job (YAY!) I will only be working 3 days a week, third shift. Though I'm not quite accustomed to the new routine at all, I am anticipating that I will be able to read way more books this year than I've ever been able to previously.


Overall Books to Read: 125.
I finished up with 107 books last year and my goal was 100. I am pretty confident that I can read more this year.



2012 Debut Author Challenge
(The Story Siren)

I ended up reading 38 debuts this week, which is way more than I was shooting for. I'm hoping to read 50 debuts this year. I'll update this post later on the books I've read, because I'm relatively non-committal and I don't want to state in advance which books I'll read!



2012 Audiobook Challenge
(Teresa's Reading Corner)

I'd really love to read 10 audiobooks this year, though I think I'll be undershooting this one big time. I LOVE AUDIOBOOKS. I'll update this list later.



2012 Sophomore Challenge
(Chick Loves Lit)

Do you realize how many amazing books came out in 2010/2011? SO MANY. So naturally, I'm going to be signing up for the 2012 Sophomore Reading Challenge, because I will be requiring so many of these books to quench my thirst for more kissing, romance, and fade-to-black hotness. Again, the whole "non-committal" thing. I'm shooting for 10 sophomore books, I'll keep up with which books I read in 2012.

Additionally, since the world is ending on December 21, we're losing 10 days of our year, so we'd better buckle down.

  3. I rocked Kristi's challenge, too, so I'm hoping to do EVEN BETTER this year. And congrats on reading 107 this year! I surpassed my goal too, so now I want to try to read a little more.

    Happy New Year, Jen!
