2012 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge

2012 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge OK, I'm fast becoming a reading challenge addict. The object of the Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge (hosted by The Book Vixen) is simply to read more books in a year than you did the year before.

2011 was my first year out of university, so the number of books I read skyrocketed from the year before. I'm hoping I can continue that trend and bump it up even higher for 2012. I'll be going for the level Out of Breath, which aims for 6 to 10 more books than the year before.

At the end of the year I'll update this post with the number of books I read in 2011, at which point I can set my goal for 2012. Then I'll maintain a list of the books I read here, so it'll be easy to see my progress.

Update: I read 72 books in 2011! I can't believe it! Therefore, I'll set 78 books as my goal for 2012. Wish me luck!
