I've got a bunch that I've got my eye on. But I haven't committed to anything yet. I should have, even back in December bc obviously you want the whole year to work on them.

I have 12 that I have my eye on.

1 - Book Chick City is hosting the Mystery & Suspense Reading Challenge.
2 - Socrates Book Review is hosting the Cruisin' thru Cozies Reading Challenge

These two are just a given since mysteries and cozies are my books of choice. It's not really a "challenge" per say for me but hey, if they are what I read anyway, why not count them!

3 - MizB's Reading Challenges hosts the 2012 Original TBR Challenge.

I love this one bc it makes me focus and read the books on my TBR list. It's actually a lot harder than I anticipated. You would think it wouldn't be hard to read books you want to read. I did this last year and the problem is getting distracted by other great books and reviews. Also, I also lost interest in some books as well, so that was a problem.

4 - Teresa's Reading Corner hosts the 2012 Audio Book Challenge.
5 - Reading with Tequila hosts the 2012 Book Blogger Recommendation Challenge.

The following ones are new to me but caught my eye. I especially like the last two. Bc it involves the kids and kids' books.

6 - Historical Tapestry hosts the Historical Fiction Challenge 2012.
7 - Reading with Martinis hosts Those Books I Should Have Read 2012 Reading Challenge.
8 - Tea Time with Marce hosts the I Want More Challenge 2012.
9 - Book Journey hosts Read Dystopia Challenge 2012.
10 - The Introverted Reader hosts the Dewey Decimal Challenge.
11 - Emlyn Chand hosts the 2012 "Books that made me love reading" Challenge.
12 - mommy wants to read hosts the 3660 Minutes Reading Challenge.

Oh, and there's one more that I did last year and can't seem to find this year is a Page to Screen/Books into Movies reading challenge. So I'm going to just make one up and Ty and I are planning are doing one together.

It's no problem. I've had these links open anyway, waiting for me to decide one way or another....

I fell into the world of reading challenges about 4 years ago. There are so many of them, so many different kinds!

If you're looking for any one in particular, let me know and I'll try to hunt it down for you.
