My 2012 reading challenge report card:
Audiobook Challenge: My goal was 25+ audiobooks. I quit counting at 29. I exceeded even my own expectations.
Goodreads challenge: My goal 120 books. I made it to 120 books but didn't do it until just yesterday. This was a lofty goal for me so I give myself an A for the effort, especially this busy year with a wedding which cut into my usual summer reading. If you look at my Goodreads page it looks as though I only read 117 books. I reread three books and they don't allow for rereads.
2012 ALA YA Award Books Challenge: I read 17 Award books this year which puts me near the top of the learner level. This is a challenge that I sponsor. I didn't read any books by the winning author (Margaret Edwards Award), Susan Cooper, or I would have deserved an A.
Read all Chris Crutcher books challenge: I only completed one Crutcher book this year. Obviously I did not apply the effort required on this assignment.
Big Book Summer Challenge: I made my goal of reading at least one big book this past summer.
Austen in August Challenge: I read one Austen-related book in August, my goal.
Books I Should Have Read in School, but Didn't Challenge: None. 0%.
2013 Challenges I will participate in:
- Read the ALA YA Award Books
- Printz Award Books
- Goodreads Challenge, 108 books
- Read Chris Crutcher Books
- Audiobooks Challenge (this is a give-me since I listen to audiobooks all the time)
