[UPDATE] 2013 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge

I found this lovely book challenge today and thought why not? It's the "2013 Outdo Reading Challenge" hosted by The Book Vixen and I'm so excited to be joining it.  Last year I barely scraped by with my 60 books read challenge and honestly, I wasn't proud of that amount. So this year I'm aiming for more than that, 100 in fact. So first let me state the rules and then declare my challenge:
2013 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge hosted by The Book Vixen

Reading Challenge Details:

  • Runs January 1, 2013 – December 31, 2013 (books read prior to 1/1/2013 do not count towards the challenge). You can join at anytime. Sign up on The Book Vixen’s blog.
  • The goal is to outdo yourself by reading more books in 2013 than you did in 2012. See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you. You can move up a level as often as you’d like but no moving down.
  • Books can be any format (bound, ebook, audio).
  • Novellas that are at least 100 pages in length, as well as full-length novels, will count for this reading challenge.
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed.
  • Grab the reading challenge button and post this reading challenge on your blog to track your progress. Please include a link back to this sign-up post so others can join the reading challenge too. You do not have to be a book blogger to participate; you can track your progress on Goodreads or LibraryThing.
Levels: Getting my heart rate up – Read 1–5 more books
Out of breath – Read 6–10 more books
Breaking a sweat – Read 11–15 more books
I’m on fire! – Read 16+ more books

Now that we all know the rules, I'm officially challenging myself to the 'I'm on fire!' level. Hopefully I'll make it (Although if the amount of books I've read in January is a good indication I think I'll be fine).
