2012 Reading Goals, revised

Apparently, I am much more of a masochist than I initially believed.

When I sat down to map out my A to Z Reading Challenge list, I went a little nuts. I seem to qualify for LEVEL 4 of the challenge.

Level 4 - The Vanna White. 52 books. Tackling each and every letter twice over this year, you'll prove your prowess is matched only by the letter master herself! We will be awed and humbled by your achievements.

See? Masochist. World-class.

I suppose I could just stash away most of the books I came up with for another year, but as I said, masochist. And probably in need of therapy. I'm only saving back a few dozen books, and the only reason for that is because I want to have time to read a few new releases and short stories (anything with less than 100 pages) this year.

I'm still mulling over the notion of reviewing the books I read. I don't normally give reviews, even on goodreads. Usually, if I'm giving a "review", it's more to explain why I gave it a low number of stars than to actually review the book. So... still thinking...

2012 Reading Goals

In setting my reading goals for 2012, I wasn't satisfied with just "read 100 books". Apparently I really AM a masochist and added some stipulations to my goal.

The first stipulation is less than 50 of the books I read (or count towards my reading goal) should be really short reads. As in, 100 pages or less.

And because that just wasn't enough of a challenge, I decided to add level 3 of the A-Z Reading Challenge found over at The Challenged Writers to the books that have more than 100 pages. Level 3 states

Level 3 - The Varsity Jacket. 26 books. You'll read a book starting with every single letter! Once completed, a victory lap around the track can be performed in celebration!

So... yeah. There we go. Books. Reading. Masochist. Yup.
