It’s that time of year again when I like to start to think about the challenges (reading or otherwise) for the new year. There’s something about knowing that there is a group of like minded people out there in the world all working towards the same challenge goals. As I start to see challenges popping up on the blogs it gets my spidey senses tingling and wondering what challenges I will offer here this coming year.
For the 4th year in a row I bring back the Where Are You Reading Challenge? I love this one! Back when I started this challenge in 2011,it seemed a natural challenge to have and seems to go along nicely with my meme, What Are You Reading?
What is the point of the challenge? To try to read a book that is mainly set in each of the 50 states and bonus books for outside the US.
For more details and ideas on how to keep track of your books, check the challenge page link here. To sign up for the challenge, use the link on the challenge page and add your link to your post (if you blog) or just add a comment below if you are not a blogger but wish to join in the challenge.
This Challenge is new, and one I have been thinking about for a few weeks now. For myself I have a lot of things I still want to do in my life. I have to believe I am not alone on this. 😀 Remember the things you had one hoped to do? Or…. the things that you keep saying “one day, I would like to try that”, or “one day I am going to do that!”
I think it is easy for us all to get caught up in our every day life and commitments and those “one day” items never come to pass. The last few years for myself, I have been challenging myself to reach new goals and try new things. Where once I often said, No, I can’t do that, I have really changed my tune and my response to a, “what if I can?”
Life is too short to not try the things we once hoped to so this challenge is for us to take 2014 as the year that we do take things off that bucket list. For more information on this challenge as well as some ideas to get the juices flowing for your list, check out the sign up link here. I think this is going to be a lot of fun, no pressure… just doing things we had always said we would like to.
