150+ Reading Challenge For 2012

 It is my pleasure to present to you the 
150+ Reading Challenge for 2012!


Last year was my first year hosting the 100+ Reading Challenge.  I noticed a TON of blogs are hosting it this year, so I thought I would up the challenge.  For me 100 books is not a problem to read for one year.  I know there are a lot of people out there who can read more than the base line of 100.

So....this year I am not only challenging myself, I am going to challenge you to read even more this year!

The goal is to reach 150+ books for this challenge?  Now don't get discouraged!  I know 150 books or more sounds like a lot.  When you read the rules below though, you will find that it is quite easy to reach 150 books.

Don't be shy! Come sign up and spread the word!  The challenge doesn't officially start until January 1rst, 2012 but I wanted to get it set up before the holidays are upon us.  This should give you plenty of time to get yourself geared up for this challenge increase!


1. The goal is to read 150 or more books. Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate. Posting on GoodReads or wherever you post your reviews is good enough.

2. Allowed are: Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, YA, Manga, Graphic Novels, Library books, Novellas, Young Reader, Nonfiction – as long as the book has an ISBN or equivalent or can be purchased as such, the book counts.

What doesn't count: Individual short stories or individual books in the Bible and comic books.

3. No need to list your books in advance. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.

4. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.

5. Challenge begins January 1st, 2012 thru December 31, 2012. Books started before the 1st do not count. You can join at anytime.

6. When you sign up under Linky, put the direct link to your post where your books will be listed. Include the URL to this post so that other viewers can find this fun challenge. If you’d prefer to put your list in the sidebar of your blog, please leave your viewers the link to the sign up page. Again, so viewers can join the challenge too.

READY......SET.....SIGN UP!!!!

I'm having a blast on the 100+, and usually read over 150, so should be good to go!

Wow, this sounds like an awesome challenge but I don't know that I could pull it off. I'll be thinking about it though!

I thoroughly enjoyed joining you for the 100+ challenge this year. And since I'm on target to read over 200 by Dec 31st, I see no problem with upping the ante. Will get my challenge post together and jump in for 150+ in 2012!

Definitely up for this. I'm currently going for an English course at uni so I'll need to be devouring books like happy meals anyway! :D

Can't wait to get started! xxx

Wandered over from BunBun's blog, Buttons & Bunnies. I would love to participate but am not sure of my welcome. Is a non-mainstream girl welcome? :)

I have a question: I read a lot of books with my kids. Is there a minimum page limit for the book to "count" for the challenge?

I'm a little late for the 2011 book challenge so looking forward to next year . I just joined the book journey so I have lots of time to gear up.

I'm definitely signing up for this one; I'm pretty sure I read that many books in a year. I'll get my post up soon!

I've signed up for this. I don't know if I'll be able to read 150 books, but if mangas and graphic novels count maybe I can.

Blogger Jackie said...

so graphic novels are comic books right? such as Smurfs and the magic flute? Are Archie comics and other ones acceptable too? Can you please let me know? thanks

Would I be able to do this thing? I don't know if I can hit 150 so late, lol. Do you think I could make it or I should just wait until next year to join the new one?
