Reading Challenges for 2011

I Haven't joined many Reading Challenges but there are so many neat ones this year that I thought I would join in on several

The first one was a no Brainer for me since I listen to ALOT of audio books



Welcome to the 2011 Audio Book Challenge. The 2010 edition was hosted by Alaine of Queen of Happy Endings. When Alaine was looking for someone to take over for her, I happily volunteered. The 2011 Audio Book Challenge will run from January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011.

Curious: 3 Audio Books
Fascinated: 6 Audio Books
Addicted: 12 Audio Books
Obsessed: 20 Audio Books

I will going for the Obsessed level which is listening to 20 books (shouldn't be hard since I usually average about one a week)
 
 

Guidelines for the 1st in a Series Challenge 2011
1. Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate. If you're not a blogger, leave your information in the comments.

Off The Shelf!

Off the shelf Reading Challenge

Off The Shelf Challenge

Are your books multiplying like rabbits before you even get a chance to read them? Trying to keep up with them, but can't stop buying new ones?

Maybe this challenge is for you. I know what it's like. There's so many titles and so many beautiful books out there sometimes it's hard to keep that TBR shelf under control, but if you really want to try why not challenge yourself?

The challenge begins on the 1st of January and ends on the 31st of December 2011

Note: This challenge is to read those books you own copies of, but have never got around to reading. If you don't have many that you own, but have a massive TBR shelf you're welcome to read those ones as long as you don't add new ones. You don't need to actually get rid of your books after you've read them, this is just to read them.

How To Participate

Series Challenge Season 5 hosted by Secret Dream world of a Bookaholic
Due to my current busy schedule, I'm afraid the Series Challenge Season 5 will not start until January 1, 2011. I hope you don't mind! If you want to sign up for the challenge, just comment below with your name and a link to your blog. If you don't have a blog, please note that.

The rules:

1) The challenge starts January 1, 2011 and ends December 31, 2011.

2) You must read 3 or more books for this challenge.

3) With these books, you should finish the series or at least be up to date with it.

4) Crossovers with other challenges are perfectly alright, as are re-reads.

5) Post a review on your blog and leave a link at the post I will set up on January 1, so I can keep track and others might find new series to enjoy.
6) Have fun!

That's it :)


I will be catching up with several of my current series that I read.
