Goodreads 2012 Reading Challenge

Badge Courtesy of GoodReads
Did any of you resolve to read more books during 2012? If so, GoodReads is hosting this great challenge called the "2012 Reading Challenge" where you can enter your reading goal and track your progress throughout the year.

It was a no-brainer for me to enter, as I already track all the books I read through GoodReads. (Have you found me on there yet? I'm Lisa Chickos, and I'd love to follow you!) I apparently read 32 books last year, so I've decided to shoot for 30 this year--with the idea that I can secretly shoot for 40 and surprise myself when I exceed expectations. (It's all about exceeding expectations, after all.)

You can also download this great widget (see my sidebar) that tracks your progress on your blog. What a fun way for us to become inspired and to inspire others to discover great new books this year!

Interesting in signing up? Visit GoodReads and search "2012 Reading Challenge" to join in on the fun!

(As of right now, there are more than 90,000 participants, and almost 6,000,000 books have been pledged! Doesn't that just make your heart swell??)
