Goodreads 2011 reading challenge

GR 2011 Reading Challenge I received an email from Goodreads (like all the other 153.701 participants) that I will get a 2011 reading challenge badge for my GR profile IF I reach my target in the 2011 Goodreads reading challenge. .

I want that badge!

But I am afraid I won’t get it.

Somehow I bit off more than I can chew. Of the 100 books I targeted I read 62 and that is wrong already because there is a number of DNFs included in this. I will set next year’s target considerably lower. Even though I will be participating in the Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge.

Did you participate in the GR reading challenge? How did you do?

  1. A pity you didn’t make it. Is not going to happen unless you read more than one book a day for the rest of the month…

    I didn’t do this challenge as I don’t want to read more than before, I just want to read. I read 170 books last year, so there is really no need in trying to challenge myself in reading more. 🙂

  2. I didn’t go for that challenge though I would have succeeded with flying colors as they say. I’ve just passed the 150 books line recently, so … But I am planning to take it more slowly next year! Maybe reading the fatter books 😉 will slow me down a bit and this is also a reason why I created the Tea & Books challenge, so to get rid of those chunksters on my TBR piles.

    • Birgit, with the GR challenge you could set your own golad as high or low as you wanted. My hundred were just a guess and I failed miserably!
      I am sure your chunksters will slow you down a bit concerning the number of books for 2012.
