So, these are the things that I'm challenging myself to for the upcoming year!
I challenged myself to read 65 books this year and I finished the year with 68. I think with having graduated I might have a little bit more time to read, so I'm challenging myself this year to read 70 books overall and I'm keeping track of this goal with the Goodreads widget!
I love doing these, even if I didn't finish all the challenges that I signed up for last year. Some people don't like the pressure, but I just think its fun.

I loved the first in the series and challenged myself to read these last year and failed. But I REALLY want to get to them, so I'm challenging myself again.

Always wanted to read this series, so again, this is the perfect excuse.

Participated in this one last year and blew it out of the water. Once again just sticking with the 25 books level, since I'm participating in another challenge.

Love this series, can't wait to read it again!
And A Personal Challenge
I'm challenging myself TO READ MY OWN BOOKS in 2012! I have stacks of books that I have had forever and I haven't gotten around to reading them and the collection grows all the time. I love taking review requests, but I think i'm only going to accept them on a very limited basis for this year so that I can read some of these books that I've had forever. My goal for the year is 70, and I would love it if half of those books were books that I already owned. We'll see how that works out for me!
So these are the things that I'm going to be challenging myself to for the next year, along with all of the other personal goals that I have set in my life. Here's to 2012, going to make this a great year!
