Reading Challenges for 2009

***New Challenges Added! Updated Jan 6, 2009

It's that time of the year again where book-crazy people will sign up for next year's reading challenges. For the year 2008, I've bravely joined SEVEN challenges and I've only completed three. :( Oh well, the year still hasn't come to an end so I still have around 18 days to read as much as I can.

Anyway, for now, I've picked five 13 challenges for 2009. If I come across anymore interesting ones, I'll add them in. Here would be my 2009 reading challenges:

  1. 2009 Read and Review

  2. 2009 Young Adult Book Challenge

  3. 20 Books in 2009

  4. New Author Challenge 2009

  5. Read Your Name Challenge: 2009

  6. 9 Books For 2009

  7. TBR (To Be Read) Challenge

  8. The 2009 ARC Reading Challenge

  9. Read A Book A Month Challenge

  10. 2009 Ban On Spending Challenge

  11. Buy One Book And Read It Challenge 2009

    (Can only join this after the Ban On Spending Challenge)

  12. The "I Suck At Challenges" Challenge

  13. Chunkster Challenge 2009

What challenges have you joined?

P.S. I'll be part of nine 17 challenges next year as four challenges from 2008 will be brought over to 2009. They are:

  1. The Complete Booker - No time limit

  2. YA Romance Challenge - End date: Feb 28, 2009

  3. Raved-About Reads Challenge - No time limit

  4. Georgette Heyer Challenge - No time limit

I'll be keeping track of my challenges on my Challenges page in my other blog. :)

  5. phantom inkheart: Hi! Thank you. I can't wait to start it. :)

  6. Hi Josette! Thanks for joining in the "Read-A-Book-A-Month" challenge :)

    I have to say that you are VERY BRAVE to join in 10 challenges this year LOL

    I've not joined any yet but your list looks nice - gonna check them out...

  7. I can't believe how much books you guys can read. I'll faint when I read books. lol

  8. Do you have contest for instruction book reading? Cause the only book that won't make me fall asleep is instruction book.

  9. KittyCat: Um, thanks for the compliment. :D Yeah, I'm also amazed at myself for taking part in so many challenges. I hope to do well.

    hyperX: Aww, so far I've never seen anyone faint while reading books! Haha! Well, did you like any book that you've read? It wouldn't be that bad! :D

    Jessen: Hmm, so far I haven't come across such a challenge. It sounds really unique actually. Haha! And by intruction books, do you mean manuals?

  10. Yes, manuals :) I find manuals are easy to read and it helps us to understand a device better so that we can fully utilize it.

  11. Good group of challenges! We're in a lot of them together, so we can cheer each other on!

  12. Hi Josette! Good luck in all your reading challenges!

    I signed up for three and one more is my personal challenge. So there's altogether four.

    Have a wonderful year of reading! :D
