Who needs resulotions when there are challenges?

Happy New Year Everyone!

Please excuse this obligatory post with all of the challenges I'll be striving to successfully complete this year. Maybe I'll see more than a few of you on the challenge pages!

Because I thought I should join at least one challenge that might actually be a challenge for me, I'm joining the Graphic Novels Challenge. I'm not a huge graphic novel fan, but I'm not entirely against them either. Hopefully this will help me get a bit more into them. Read the rules here:

I'm going to go for the Intermediate Level, 3-10 graphic novels or comic books over the course of 2010.

GLBT Reading: The Challenge That Dare Not Speak Its Name. I'm looking forward to this challenge and getting reading suggestions from everyone else's reviews! Read the rules here:

I'm signing up for the Rainbow Level, 12 or more books.

I'm hoping the TwentyTen Challenge will help me to mix-up what I'm reading this year. With 2 books from 10 different categories, I should have a bit more variety! Read the rules here:

My Win! Win! category will go to the Graphic Novels Challenge and my Up to You category will give me an excuse to read some paranormal romance without committing to a year's worth of a paranormal challenge.

This challenge from Miz B is just what I need to counter-act the aftermath of the going-out-of-business sale last week at my local Borders Express. And counter-act, you know, being me. Read the rules here: 

I'm hoping to read at least 50 books from my own shelves in 2010.

Once again, I'll be participating in J. Kaye's Local Library Challenge. Also, again, only books from my local public library will count, as the libraries where I currently work are at a privately funded institutions. Read J. Kaye's rules here:

I'm going to stick with the Just My Size level, 50 books checked out and read from the public library in 2010, which will hopefully help me keep the focus on the books I already own.

I'll put up posts to keep track of my progress as I actually start reading for these challenges. 

Good luck with all of your challenges and Happy New Year!
