Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge 2011

I give in… I’m joining another challenge: Outdo Yourself hosted by The Book Vixen.  This sounded like such a great challenge except for the fact that I read 250 books last year and I didn’t plan to read that many again this year.  I set my 2011 goal at 150 books. 

January is not even over yet and I have already read 24 books.  If I keep up at the rate I’m going I’ll read 300 books this year.  So I’m going to go ahead and join this tour with the goal to read at the I’m on Fire level which means at least 266 books in 2011.

For now I’m just tracking my book on my Goodread’s Read in 2011 Shelf.

I’m also participating in Goodread’s 2011 Reading Challenge.  My goal for this challenge is 500 books in 2011.  Why the difference in numbers between the challenges?  In the goodreads challenge I include picture books that I’ve not read or reviewed before.  The Outdo Yourself challenge only includes books at a reading level of middle grade and up.
