2013 Reading Challenges Sign-Up Post


These are all my challenges I am signing up for this year. I will do what I can and if I cannot complete any, no issues. There are a couple of others I could have participated in as well but I decided these are more than enough, I am sure you agree!! I have to still decide on what books I have to read for each of these challenges and will update this post with the details/lists later/as I decide.
For now, this is my sign-up post with my reading levels for each challenge, where applicable.
Some of the challenges are the ones I participated in earlier – like, What’s In A Name and the Back to the Classics challenges.
I am going to look for books which will work across challenges so it is easier to complete them:)
