2014 Reading Challenges

Everyone got a jump ahead of me on signing up for challenges this year. At least that’s how it seems to me. Anyway, here are my reading challenges and goals. I’ll try to update this if I decide on more or less.

1. Dive Into Poetry Reading Challenge 2014

Goal: Dive in and read 7 or more books of poetry

  2. Good luck with the challenges. I’m still trying to decide if I want to ‘officially’ sign up for any and we’re already a week into the new year. I’m so bad at following through with them.

  4. Good luck with your challenges. I am interested in several all at once but sometimes can’t meet the challenge. I hope to meet your poetry challenge, though, cross my fingers.
