Tam from Bailey’s and Books posted about how they were going to take part in the 100+ Reading Challenge for 2010. Following the links I found the original site. J. Kaye has issued the 100+ Reading Challenge for 2010 and I have foolishly signed myself up. I am not hugely optimistic of my chances but I signed up for a few reasons.
My first reason is simple. I have well over a hundred books lying around waiting to be read. Many of them have been waiting for nearly all of this year while others are more recent acquisitions. This might actually get me reading through some new material.
The second reason is that I think it is going to be a really fun challenge. I love reading and too often I find other things to do. Admittedly a lot of my reading time is now taken up by writing, or by reading blogs, but I love reading books and this will help me to make more time for it.
Finally, I like challenges. I like meeting them. I like overcoming obstacles and making things work. I also like there not being actual consequences should I fail. It will be a challenge, but a safe one where if I meet it I get satisfaction, if I don’t, well there is next year.
So, are you going to take the challenge?
