More 2013 Challenges!

2013 Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge hosted by The Book Vixen
This year I have surprised myself by DOUBLING
the amount of books I read last year!
Now, I want to read more...
So, I will be participating in the 2013 Outdo Yourself Challenge
hosted by The Book Vixen.
My starting goal is to read 1-5 more books than in 2012.
Otherwise known as the Getting My Heart Rate Up Level. 
Here is the break down of the Challenge...

What’s your reading goal for 2013? If it’s to read more books, then this is the reading challenge for you! There have been almost 400 readers who wanted to outdo themselves so far. Are you up for the challenge?

 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. 
- 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.

     Getting my heart rate up – Read 1–5 more books
     Out of breath – Read 6–10 more books

This next challenge is new to me.
I just got my Kindle Fire last May 2012
and absolutely LOVE it.
Most of my review books are ebooks so this is perfect!
I am starting with CD Level - 10 ebooks!
