2011 Off the Self Challenge

January 1 – December 31, 2011
Bookish Armour is hosting the Off the Shelf Reading Challenge.
I’ve never participated in this challenge, but thought it would be a good one to join. I usually do the Read Your Own Books challenge, but thought this would be more difficult as you can’t count books purchased after the start of the challenge.
There are several levels of participation:

Challenge Levels

  1. Tempted– Choose 5 books to read
  2. Trying – Choose 15 books to read
  3. Making A Dint – Choose 30 books to read
  4. On A Roll – Choose 50 books to read
  5. Flying Off – Choose 75 books to read

For extra hard challenges

  1. Hoarder – Choose 75-125 books to read
  2. Buried – Choose 125-200 books to read

I’m going to go with On a Roll (50 books).

Here’s my list:

  1. The Clue in the Jewel Box by Carolyn Keene
  2. Rainwater by Sandra Brown
  3. 365 Thank Yous by John Kralik
  4. Drive by Daniel Pink
  5. Heat Wave by Richard Castle
  6. Rapture in Death by J.D. Robb

  1. I’m doing On a Roll also! :)

  2. Hey Lauren, thanks for taking part in my challenge, this is my first time around hosting it so it’s nice to see so many participants.

    Good luck with it and I look forward to see what you end up reading!

  3. Good luck! I’m on the Making a Dint level with 30 books, but I have a history of epic fail with challenges, so I wanted to go for something that I could more easily accomplish!
