Reading Challenge, 2012


Welcome to the Reading Challenge 2012. The idea is to set yourself a certain number of books to read in 2012 and then... to read that many books! After you read them, you have to write a review of that book. YOU set the amount of books you want to read this year - so don't tell me you don't have time for this. It can be as low as 5, or as high as 200. After you've written your review, don't forget to add a link to it to the wiki where you're listing the books you've read.


How to join up:

Follow the example below. write your name below, and then a link to the wiki-page where you will be keeping a list of the books you've read. Below that, keep a tally of how many books you've read, and also list when you joined the challenge. E.g.:

1. [SilverFire] - Silvie's Reading List 2012
Books read: 0/100
Joined: 24/01/12



Q: Can I re-read books I've already read?
A: You can re-read books you've already read prior to this year (providing you haven't already written a review on it) but you can't count the same book twice, even if you read it twice this year.

Q: How do I write a review?
A: Go to your ET diary. In the top right corner are a load of buttons. One of them says 'write a review'. Click it!

Q: It's February/March/November - can I still join?
A: Sure. But take when you're starting into consideration when deciding your goal.

Q: Can I count comics/graphic novels?
A: That's entirely up to you, and whether you personally count them as books or not. The point of this challenge is to get people to read more, so if you already read 300 comic books a year, then maybe you shouldn't count them. (NB: I know many people in other challenges count 3-5 comics/mangas as equivalent to one book).

2012-01-02 [Celtore]: I could have sworn I typed 2012...

Akayume your link doesnt work :-(

2012-01-02 [Akayume]: It works just fine. :P The page is still nonexistent. I'll get to it eventually.

2012-01-02 [Celtore]: Oh! Well :-)~

2012-01-02 [Linderel]: Aina, why did you change my date? >_o *changing back*

2012-01-03 [Celtore]: I did? I thought I changed my date more than I should have needed. Ugh sorry. I'm still not feeling up to par.

2012-01-03 [Linderel]: :P

Hmm. Might have to actually try and write the reviews, too. I kind of skipped that part last year.

2012-01-03 [Viking]: Slacker!

2012-01-03 [Mortified Penguin]: Being the lazy person I am, I just copied the previous date instead of typing it myself.

2012-01-07 [hanhepi]: oh, i didn't count any books i read last year because (or most of the books from 2010) because i was too lazy to review them... does this mean i coulda counted them? i think i'm gonna keep track of books i read. still might not review them though, cause i suck.

2012-01-07 [Viking]: You're supposed to review all the books, but it's not necessary. They still count even without reviews.

2012-01-08 [hanhepi]: well crap, i wonder how many books i read last year?

2012-01-08 [Viking]: 73?

2012-01-10 [hanhepi]: sounds good to me. i'm going to claim it whenever anyone asks.

2012-02-07 [Nioniel]: I love this. :3 I haven't read this much in a long time.

2012-02-08 [Akayume]: Me either. :P But now that I have an hour long bus ride home, it helps. :P

2012-08-07 [Akayume]: For the first time I have actually met my goal. XD

2012-12-30 [Ms. Steel]: And... fin.

2012-12-30 [Mortified Penguin]: And Jake.

2013-02-15 [All_Most PUNK]: Is there a Reading Challenge 2013?

2013-02-15 [Viking]: Yes, at Reading Challenge 2013.

2013-02-17 [Mortified Penguin]: Hooray! I haven't read a book in over two years!
