Signed up for the 2012 Reading Challenge

By Cher Cabula-Mendoza - Sunday, January 01, 2012

Last year I managed to read 100 books for the reading challenge over at GoodReads. I struggled through it because I had such a busy schedule and towards the end of the year, I had to cram several books in order to make the deadline. Thankfully, I did. Although this year, I’m entering the challenge with 25 lesser books.


Why lesser books this year? I found that I had to pass on thick novels in order to be able to make the reading quota allotted for a single month. Given the amount of free time I have,that I also have to juggle between doing other tasks and hobbies, if I signed up again for 100 books this year, I might fall into the same pattern. Believe it or not, I still have books bought last year that I haven’t read. My ebook collection is still plenty. In fact, one of my target buys this year would be an ebook reader. My phone is becoming more of a gaming device nowadays instead of accompanying me to bed with an ebook.

So here’s to another good reading year. I can’t wait to see what wonderful novels will make it to my list this year. How about you? Wouldn’t you like to start a nice reading habit this year? Sign up at GoodReads now.
