One thing that the community of book bloggers does very well is challenges. You name it, there's a challenge for it - TBR challenges, debut author challenges, e-book challenges, best-of list challenges. It's extremely cool, and one year I'll jump into these in a big way. BUT, right now, there's that little matter of most of my reading time being taken up for school, which means most of my reading choices are being made for me. Not so conducive to participation, no matter how cool the challenges are.
However, I did hear about one that I think I can absolutely do, mostly because it involves something I'm really wanting to work on -- reading and commenting on other people's blogs. I'm a horrible lurker, reading lots of blogs on a variety of topics but hardly ever speaking up. Hmmm, a bit like real life, maybe? But I'm turning that around by participating in the 2012 Comment Challenge, sponsored by Lee Wind and MotherReader. So far, week-and-a-half in, I'm on track with five comments a day. And I've found some incredible blogs along the way, that I might never have stumbled on other wise. Woohooo!
If you're doing the Comment Challenge too, welcome! What moved you to participate this year? And what other reading goals have you set for yourself??
