Reading Challenge, 2010


Welcome to the Reading Challenge 2010. The idea is to set yourself a certain about of books to read in 2010 and then... to read that many books! After you read them, you have to write a review of that book. YOU set the amount of books you want to read this year - so don't tell me you don't have time for this. It can be as low as 5, or as high as 200. After you've written your review, don't forget to add a link to it to the wiki where you're listing the books you've read.


How to join up:

Follow the example below. write your name below, and then a link to the wiki-page where you will be keeping a list of the books you've read. Below that, keep a tally of how many books you've read, and also list when you joined the challenge. E.g.:

1. [SilverFire] - Silvie's Reading List 2010
Books read: 0/100
Joined: 01/01/10



Q: Can I re-read books I've already read?
A: You can re-read books you've already read prior to this year (providing you haven't already written a review on it) but you can't count the same book twice, even if you read it twice this year.

Q: How do I write a review?
A: Go to your ET diary. In the top right corner are a load of buttons. One of them says 'write a review'. Click it!

Q: It's February/March/November - can I still join?
A: Sure. But take when you're starting into consideration when deciding your goal.

Q: Can I count comics/graphic novels?
A: That's entirely up to you, and whether you personally count them as books or not. The point of this challenge is to get people to read more, so if you already read 300 comic books a year, then maybe you shouldn't count them. (NB: I know many people in other challenges count 3-5 comics/mangas as equivalent to one book).

2010-12-22 [SilverFire]: Pubky, read moar!

2010-12-23 [All_Most PUNK]: I've been reading, just not updating! (because I haven't been loggin in here :P ).

LOOK! 99!

2010-12-24 [SilverFire]: w00t!

2010-12-24 [All_Most PUNK]: Currently reading: Blue Moon Rising by Simon Green and Catch 22 by Joseph Heller.

2010-12-24 [SilverFire]: <3 Catch 22

2010-12-25 [All_Most PUNK]: It's amazing, but for some reason I started it like 3 months ago and then got distracted by horrible books :P

2010-12-26 [SilverFire]: I think that might be some sort of crime. <_<

2010-12-26 [Akayume]: Agreed.

2010-12-27 [All_Most PUNK]: Probably it is in first world countries. But you know us backwards third world societies, we don't have rules that make sense.

2010-12-28 [Chishio]: I'm not going to make it... I should have pick a lower goal

2010-12-28 [Viking]: i'm not going to make it either. At this point, I'll be happy to finish the two books I'm reading now.

But we're doing it again next year, right?

2010-12-28 [All_Most PUNK]: You may. I'm not sure I will :P

2010-12-28 [Viking]: slacker!

2010-12-28 [Eyden13]: I'll definitely want to to it next year!

2010-12-28 [All_Most PUNK]: I'm the slacker? You, sir, are the slacker!

2010-12-29 [All_Most PUNK]: And theeeeen... 100!

2010-12-30 [Viking]: I'm a slacker, as are you. Neither of us slacks enough to be the slacker. Read some Plato if you need more info.

2010-12-30 [All_Most PUNK]: Can't read anymore this year, sorry :S It would be against the law or something.

2010-12-30 [Viking]: Right. That makes sense.

2010-12-30 [Linderel]: I'll be lucky if I make it to 29 (although I might if I read all day tomorrow), but that would still count as a victory of sorts; I haven't read nearly as much in the past few years. :3
