Weekly Geeks : Reading Challenges 2011

Do you plan on participating in any reading challenges in 2011?. Are there any challenges you are looking forward to that haven't been announced yet? Or are you all about being free to read what you want, when you want?

I like to read whatever takes my fancy rather than reading for challenges. I don't join many challenges and the ones I do join, I take those in my stride without any kind of pressure.  I read varied genres, so even if I don't join any challenges, I do seek out books which are interesting, different and make me think. Poetry too comes into that.

The challenges that I will definitely be participating are:

1Mystery and Suspense Reading Challenge 2011 which is hosted by Book Chick City and will go on from Jan-Dec 2011. One has to read 12 books of the genre. I am way ahead in this challenge for 2010!

2)  Canadian Book Challenge 2010-2011 hosted by John Mutford and runs from July 10 to June 11.

3) R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril Challenge VI to be hosted by Carl V Sept-Oct 2011

For the past two years, I have only been joining at the most, three challenges. In 2011 too I will not join more than three.

Hi doll! I've been woefully horrible with challenges this year. Think I might take another stab at the mystery challenge. Have fun! Will be watching.

I join quite a few challenges, but don't pick books based on them. If the books I read fit into the challenges, great, if not, oh well.

Same here - I like to read whatever I feel like reading when I feel like reading it. But, I still seem to end up signing up for challenges. Next year, I'm planning to only do self-challenges. I want to challenge myself to start reading an entire shelf of books and then keep on going, one shelf at a time. I've been pondering which shelf to start on, though, and that's apparently the hard part!! LOL Have fun with your challenges.
