After a considerable amount of thought, I've decided to give reading challenges another try this year.  I wasn't satisfied with my challenge results last year because I didn't meet all of the goals I set for myself in 2013. However, since I started 2014 off at a good reading pace, I am going to take the plunge again.

Reading challenges are fun.  They're also a good way to stay motivated and interact with other bloggers.  Whether committing to reading certain types of books or authors, challenges help set the pace and keep things interesting.  It's rewarding even when you only complete a few.

Here are the three challenges I am participating in:

 My Challenge:  Level 2 - Investigator - 7-12 cozy mystery books

My Challenge:  Chapter Book Level - 12 books from the library

 Join my new 2014 "Women Challenge"! :)
My Challenge: Level 4 - Wonder Woman - 20+ books by women authors

The four books I've already read this year have me off to a good start for two of these reading challenges.
I Love Library Books Reading Challenge -- 2/12:
                                 The Master by Colm Tóibín      The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion by Fannie Flagg

Women Challenge -- 3/20+ :
                        The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion by Fannie Flagg  The Orphanmaster by Jean Zimmerman  The Book of Eve by Constance Beresford-Howe  

How about you?  Have you signed by for any 2014 reading challenges?
