New Challenges Already??

 

 
So....it's hard to believe, but, apparently, it's that time of year when challenge hosts start posting their new challenges for the the coming year. And because it's that time of year, I (like the car above) get sidetracked from my 2022 challenge destinations and tempted to take the 2023 off-ramp. Just off to the right there is the road that leads to the town of  2023 Challenge Planning. Both planning my reading for the challenges I sign up for as well as planning for the challenges that I will host myself. It becomes a little more difficult to keep my eye on the 2022 prize.

If you're curious about the 2023 challenges which are popping up, I've added a tab for next year's challenges above.

Happy reading! And Happy Challenging!

I've Signed Up for HOW many challenges?!


Is it just me or are there more challenges out there this year? Or maybe there are just more calling my name. I ask because....well, 2021 isn't even over yet and I have managed to sign up for 27 (yes, you read that correctly Twenty. Seven.) challenges. Sure...I might wind up with that many by the end of the reading year, because new ones pop up. Or I pick up short-term ones (for summer or the Christmas Spirit Challenge or whatever). But I don't normally start with that many. Folks...I think I have a challenge problem....

So...how many have you signed up for? C'mon, fess up and make a girl feel better about how many she's got.

Christmas Is Coming! Time for a Christmas Challenge & Readathon

 

 
Michelle at Seasons of Reading is once again sponsoring her Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge. In short, the challenge runs from November 22, 2021 through January 6, 2022. The books read must be Christmassy in nature--novels, short story collections, books of poems, etc.
 
Three ways to participate:
1. Challenge: Pick a level
      ~Candy Cane: read 1 book
      ~Mistletoe: read 2-4 books
      ~Christmas Tree: read 5-6 books (this is the fanatic level...LOL!)
2. Readathon: read as much (or as little as you want)
3. Participate in both!

Additional levels for watching Christmas movies and reading children's books with your kids--but you must complete one of the main reading levels to fulfill the challenge.
 
 
I'm joining in for the Readathon and also at the Mistletoe level for the challenge. Come join us!

Get Ready to Be Challenged...in 2022


  And, yes, the holidays are coming. But...that's not what I mean. For reading challenge addicts like us, this time of year means that challenge hosts are putting together new versions of current challenges for 2022. Or, perhaps, they're dreaming up new challenges to make our addict hearts beat faster. 

Jamie @ Whatever I Think Of is the absolute best at tracking down challenges and has already spotted the first one. So, I will be setting up the links for next year's list of Reading Challenge Addict challengers as well as the ongoing list of reading challenges that get posted for 2022.

Summer Time and the Reading Is Easy

Hilda by Duane Bryers

 ...or at least it's supposed to be. Let's hope that we all have some down time this summer and can work in extra reading time. I'm going to need to squeeze in as much as possible because in August we're going back to live and in person at the university and I have a feeling that my reading time is going to suddenly drop to zero while I get used that whole transporting myself to office (instead of of my living room) thing again.

For those looking for Summer Challenges, I've updated the Challenge list, but here are a few that might tempt you.
