2013 Reading Challenge Round-Up

Happy holidays everyone!  I’ve been trying to keep an eye out for 2013 challenges.  I haven’t decided if I’m going to sign up for any – although now is the time to decide, and I have lots of time this week to think about it!

When I searched for 2013 Book Challenges I found tons of them.  But I wanted to stick to challenges from blogs I’m familiar with, so here’s what I found:

Around the World in 12 Books: http://www.giraffedays.com/?p=14723 (read a book from a different country each month)

Sarah’s Back to the Classics Challenge: http://www.sarahreadstoomuch.com/2012/12/announcing-back-to-classics-challenge.html (read books from different literary categories)

Roof Beam Reader’s TBR Challenge: http://roofbeamreader.com/2012/11/23/announcing-the-2013-tbr-pile-challenge/ (read books from last year’s TBR pile – I did this in 2012 and it was a great way to push yourself to read books you might otherwise have forgotten about)

Book’d Out’s Eclectic Reader Challenge: http://bookdout.wordpress.com/eclectic-reader-challenge-2013/2013eclecticreader/ (read a book from a different genre each month)

Historical Tapestry’s Historical Fiction Challenge: http://bippityboppitybook.blogspot.com/2012/12/2013-historical-fiction-reading.html (read a certain number of historical novels in 2013 — as few as 2 or 25 or more)

in 2012 What She Read hosted the Pay it Sideways Challenge, and I said I’d include it in my 2013 list.  Laurie, will you be hosting in 2013?

And here’s a blog I don’t know but a challenge I’ve been meaning to start: Socrates’ Book Review Blog’s Finishing the Series Challenge: http://socratesbookreviews.blogspot.com/2012/11/finishing-series-reading-challenge-2013.html

What challenges will you be participating in?  Please post a comment with a link.
