Yes, friends, I'm joining up with Gina and CMash over at the Reading Challenge Addict blog, which is basically just a place to keep track of all the challenges you join, find out about new challenges that are up-and-coming, and help add to the total, ridiculously high number of pages read and challenges achieved that a bunch of bibliomaniacs can produce when we all join together for a common...obsession. In the 2011 challenge, Gina and CMash set tiers of addictive behavior, based on how many challenges each participant entered and completed, and I assume they will again in 2012, though I imagine that's not really the sort of thing I'll be able to predict about myself. I won't know how many I entered AND completed until I...you know... complete them. I know. I'm burbling now. Let's move on.
Anyway, come along and join us, and don't forget to join ME here at The Beauty of Eclecticism for my "Read Your OWN Library!" Challenge--a perpetual challenge held once a month--and my 2012 Medieval Reading Challenge--from January 1-December 31, 2012. Resistance is futile, and not nearly as much fun as giving in to your book addiction.
Okay, now that I've seen a bit more of what's out there and signed up for a few challenges, I really think I better quite while I'm only woefully behind, before I get impossibly behind. I've signed up to read a total of 54 books in 2012 thus far--that's more books than there are weeks in a year!--so I'm officially declaring myself at the On the Roof level of Reading Challenge addiction (6-10 challenges), and I'm going to TRY to practice some restraint about signing up from here on out. Yeah, I know--good luck.
