TGIF: Sept. 23rd, 2011


TGIF is a feature at GReads which recaps the posts for the week and has a different question each week for bloggers to answer.

This Friday's Question:

Reading Challenges: Did you sign up for any this year?  How has your progression been?

The only reading challenge I signed up for this year was the 2011 Reading Challenge on Goodreads that challenged you to read a certain number of books in a year.  Of course, you set the number.  

My original number for this challenge, based on how many books I read last year, was 125.  Well, I hit that goal exactly at the halfway point of the year.  I finally decided to up the number to 175.  Yup, I'm an underachiever.  Why should I say 200? or 250? if 175 is more attainable.

I like to challenge myself, but I admit that I also don't like to see myself fail.  I'm still debating on upping the challenge to 200, but I just can't bring myself to do it.  I'm currently at 149 of the 175 books I have challenged myself to read.  We'll see how it goes.  What are your thoughts?  Do you think I should up my challenge?

What about you?  What challenges are you participating in?  I would love some challenge recommendations for 2012!
