New Author Challenge

New Authors Challenge 2013This challenge runs from Jan 1 to Dec 31. The point is to find and read books by authors that are new to you. You can choose 15, 25 or 50 new authors.

Anthologies are a good way to read new authors but this shouldn’t take up more than a 1/3 of the books you read.

Grab a Book and Pull Up a Seat

This is a book group that I follow on Shelfari. They are an adults only (though I’m not sure why) club. Every month they have a mini challenge like, read a book with a monster on it, or read something about going back to school, etc.

Book Page Challenge

The goal of this challenge is to read a certain number (of your choosing) of pages a year. I am only participating to see how many pages I end up reading, because the number can be rather surprising.

Got any interesting reading challenges you are participating in? Comment below! I love to read about other people’s reading challenges.
