Year in Review Post #2: 2011 Reading Challenges Round-Up

Yesterday, I began a series of posts wrapping up 2011, with a look back at all the titles I reviewed thanks to NetGalley. Today, I'm focusing on my 2011 reading challenges.

I participated in four reading challenges this year. As I was new to blogging in January, I wanted to make sure I would stay motivated to read, and that I would also make some connections in the blogging world and gain some traffic. I tried to choose challenges that I thought would suit my reading interests, and that I had a reasonably good chance of completing. I am proud to say that I did finish them all, and that I think my blog has been better off for it. Here are my results.

I don't plan to participate in any reading challenges with this blog in 2012. I found the record-keeping very difficult to keep up with, and I realized, after seeing the huge number of titles I read this year, that I don't really need challenges to keep me reading. But I definitely plan to keep reading and blogging in the new year.
Check back tomorrow to see how well I fulfilled my 2011 blogging resolutions!
