   I am trying to be a bit more organized for next year. I have been looking for reading challenges that are fun and expand my reading boundaries. My first reading challenge for next year will be to participate in the 2011 Debut Author Challenge that is hosted by Krisit at The Story Siren. I read about this challenge this month and was a bit too late to participate for this year, but I'm so excited to join for next year. I plan on reading at least fifteen books for this challenge, but may end up reading more. I already see lots of my blogger friends joining the challenge. I can't wait to see what people read and read their reviews!

Here's some information about the challenge:

  1.  The objective of this challenge is to read at least twelve novels from Young Adult or Middle Grade Authors. 12 books is the minimum to participate but there is no max limit.
  2. Anyone can join. You don't have to live in the U.S. or be a blogger.
  3. If you do have a blog, it doesn't have to be written in English to participate.
  4. You can join anytime. The challenge runs from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011. 
You can read about how a book qualifies for this challenge here.
