Let Me Count the Ways Reading Challenge 

This challenge is all about page count. There are levels for you to choose from. You can always move up a level but you can't go down. I am going with mansion, the highest level which is 10,001+ pages. Since I read over 17,000 in 2012, I think I should be good. 

Total pages: 2,117 (as of 2/8)
2013 TBR Pile Reading Challenge
This one is a bit complicated, but the gist of it is to read books you have on your TBR list. I'm going with the friendly hug level - reading 11-20 books from my tbr list.  Total: 4 (Listed below)





2013 Ebook Challenge
I hardly ever read books on my fancy schmancy nookcolor, so I'm challenging myself to read 10 ebooks. So I am going for the CD level.

2013 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge hosted by The Book Vixen
Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge
I didn't read nearly as much in 2012 as I normally do, so my goal is to read 60 books next year. That's 10 more than I read in 2012.

Current tally: 7

Just for Fun Reading Challenge
I did this challenge in 2012 and actually finished it as well. The challenge is to read one book per month just for fun. Not for a review or for another challenge, but just for fun. You can sign up for this one on goodreads.
