2011 Challenges

I had so much fun participating in the Thankfully Reading challenge that I decided to attempt some year long challenges in 2011. I found a lot I wanted to participate in but had to narrow it down to three since I will be very busy with school and photography this year. These are the challenges I decided on. Special thanks to Jenn of Jenn's Bookshelves for her post that inspired me!

I am really excited for this challenge hosted by Beth Fish Reads. It sounds like so much fun. I have to read books in the following categories:
  1. A book with a number in the title
  2. A book with jewelry or a gem in the title
  3. A book with a size in the title
  4. A book with travel or movement in the title
  5. A book with evil in the title
  6. A book with a life stage in the title
I already have a few books in mind such as Evil Under The Sun by Agatha Christie and Journey To the Center of the Earth(which *gasp* I have never read).

I am going to do this one because I have been listening to a lot of audio books with my long commute to school and once the summer come around again to my work commute. I have signed up for the Fascinated level which means I have to listen to 6 books. Should be easy enough!

Of course I have to do this challenge since I received my beautiful Nook for Christmas. I am going for the Addicted level which means I will have to read 12 e books. I would go for 20 but I am afraid that would negatively affect my pocketbook and studying time!
So I have decided to do these three challenges. I may add another if I find something else that strikes my fancy. Looking forward to a great 2011!
