No Book Challenges - My New Year's Resolution

It's so tempting to join the book challenges starting in 2010. But after going to Borders yesterday and seeing all the books there, I'm even more tempted not to sign up for a challenge. I'm tired of the one I'm doing now because I feel obligated. The challenge list on my sidebar is starting to weigh me down. Especially because there are so many books I want to just pick up at the book store and start reading!

So, I think my New Year's resolution is going to be to not sign up for any book challenges. Except...maybe one - J. Kaye's 2010 100+ Book Challenge. I'm participating in a similar one through Goodreads this year, and the only obligation is to read 100 or more books in a year. Any books you want. I don't think I'm going to meet my goal this year, since I'm only on book #80 and there are just a few weeks left in the year. That's okay though, 80 is good, and I love not feeling obligated to read certain books.

What about you? Which book challenges, if any, will you be participating in?

Hi Lynne - great post! I too am doing the 100 as since this book blogging has taken off I dont see that number being an issue. :)

I have signed up for others... I am doing the YA one (love the genre), the Historical Fiction one (it is small I can read 6), there is a mystery one and a Christian Fiction one... all of which I think I would be reading anyway and they fit into the big 100 one too! :)

Sheila, it is nice when a book fits into more than one challenge. Who knows, I probably will sign up for something eventually.

Can I just tell you that never once have I followed through with a New Year's resolution? The last resolution I made was probably 20 years ago because I have no willpower. So I figure why bother making them. :) LOL
