2013 Reading Challenge

The start of a new year means that it’s time to once again kick off the annual Goodreads Reading Challenge! Although I joined the 2012 challenge halfway through the year, I still managed to complete 25 books, especially given the significant number of cross-country flights I put under my belt between June and December.

This year, while I don’t expect to be doing quite as much traveling, I still hope to read more books than I did last year. Initially, I’ve set my 2013 goal at 30 books, but should I find that I’m burning through them faster than expected, I’ll definitely increase the number as I go along.


Are you joining the Goodreads 2013 Reading Challenge, and if so, how many books are you hoping to read this year? Feel free to come say hi and link up with me!

  1. Reading is always a great goal to have, but I definitely need to make time for it. I read 7 books over the holidays and my trip to India - I love to read and really miss it when work and life get in the way!

  2. Happy reading this year! I'm going to try to do better with my book-a-week goal this year. My commute to work is longer since I moved, so I plan to use that time to read.

  3. WOW, 30 books in one year, that sounds like a lot to me, but I guess I could give it a try.

    I just finished one last night but I started in 2012 so, would that count?

    Happy reading :)

  5. I like when you FB your books you want to read and have read on Goodreads! It gives me ideas for things to read that I know will be good. :o)

  8. I have been trying to read more too. I was doing good for a while but it has definitely been hard for me to find the time lately. I have a huge stack of books by my bed waiting for me though.

  10. I'm not joining a specific challenge, but I am hoping to knock out at least a book a month this year - I've never been a big reader, but I really want to change that! Good luck with this :) xoxo, eliza

  12. I plan to read a bit more than last year. I think I read only 10 or 12 books so hopefully more this year. Need to get started!
    Good luck to you! You can do it!
