Do you plan on participating in any reading challenges in 2011? Are you planning on hosting any reading challenges? Perhaps you'd like to share an idea for a reading challenge--to see if there is any interest! Share with us which challenges look tempting to you! (You don't have to "officially" join any of the challenges for this weekly geek. Just let us know which ones you'd be most interested in.) You might want to spend some time browsing A Novel Challenge. Are there any challenges you are looking forward to that haven't been announced yet? Regardless of your challenge plans, are you starting to plan ahead for next year? Do you make lists or goals? Are you a person who enjoys reading more if it is structured? Or are you all about being free to read what you want, when you want?
I hadn’t started thinking about challenges for 2011, but I’ve participated in some in the past and found them to be fun. One of my favorites for 2009 was the Pub Challenge; for two years running I’ve done the A to Z Challenge, which I might participate in again this upcoming year if someone is doing it. I didn’t complete it this year (didn’t get an author for X in), but I had fun with it. Another challenge I did this year that I had fun with was the Chunkster Challenge. When I do challenges, I typically make lists of books to read, though I never really stick with them. I think I enjoy reading more if I go along with no set pattern or reading goals. However, if I do participate in the A to Z Challenge (if it’s offered), I have a number of books in mind to read for it.
