2012 Reading Challenge Wrap-Up

In 2012 I participated in, and completed two reading challenges.

The first was the Historical Fiction Challenge Reading Challenge 2012 hosted over at Historical Tapestry blog.  I signed up to read 10 books to achieve Struggling the Addiction level and was able to achieve this by 29 November.

-The second reading challenge was the Aussie Author Challenge 2012 hosted by Booklover Book Reviews blog.  For this challenge I signed up to read 12 books by at least 6 different Australian authors to achieve Dinky Di status. 

In addition to these two challenges, I also set myself a GoodReads goal to read 60 books during 2012.  Despite a big finish at the end of the year,  I unfortunately fell short by just one book, achieving only 59 books for 2012.  Some quick stats though, according to GoodReads, I read a total of 17,533 pages during 2012.

In 2013, I am going to set the goal of 60 books again, and hopefully achieve it this time.  What reading goals and challenges are you setting for yourself this year?

Carpe Librum!
