Reading Challenge, 2011


Welcome to the Reading Challenge 2011. The idea is to set yourself a certain number of books to read in 2011 and then... to read that many books! After you read them, you have to write a review of that book. YOU set the amount of books you want to read this year - so don't tell me you don't have time for this. It can be as low as 5, or as high as 200. After you've written your review, don't forget to add a link to it to the wiki where you're listing the books you've read.


How to join up:

Follow the example below. write your name below, and then a link to the wiki-page where you will be keeping a list of the books you've read. Below that, keep a tally of how many books you've read, and also list when you joined the challenge. E.g.:

1. [SilverFire] - Silvie's Reading List 2011
Books read: 0/100
Joined: 24/01/11



Q: Can I re-read books I've already read?
A: You can re-read books you've already read prior to this year (providing you haven't already written a review on it) but you can't count the same book twice, even if you read it twice this year.

Q: How do I write a review?
A: Go to your ET diary. In the top right corner are a load of buttons. One of them says 'write a review'. Click it!

Q: It's February/March/November - can I still join?
A: Sure. But take when you're starting into consideration when deciding your goal.

Q: Can I count comics/graphic novels?
A: That's entirely up to you, and whether you personally count them as books or not. The point of this challenge is to get people to read more, so if you already read 300 comic books a year, then maybe you shouldn't count them. (NB: I know many people in other challenges count 3-5 comics/mangas as equivalent to one book).

2011-01-04 [Ms. Steel]: You know, that thought crossed my mind.

2011-01-04 [Caterin S.]: I changed mine too. It kept on bothering me for being "wrong". It should be date/month/year, that's more logical. ;)

2011-01-04 [SilverFire]: More logical to us, but if you always say dates as "July 25th, 1988" etc. (which, I think, is how most Americans do say dates) then it's logical to write them that way too.

2011-01-04 [Akayume]: Yes. XP Which sed to confuse the people in my French class when my teacher would do date month year.

2011-01-04 [Viking]: No, we should always go year-month-date. And the year should have 4 digits and the month and date should have 2 digits. That way the dates are sortable as strings =)

2011-01-05 [Chishio]: i hope i can reach mine this year.

2011-01-07 [hanhepi]: i don't mind writing the date with the year first, as long as it's the 4 digit year... i mean 4 digits when the first number could be a month anyway. once 2013 rolls around, it won't be too confusing to have a 2 digit year.

2011-01-10 [SilverFire]: But the first number could be a date, too. :O So you're only safe in 2032. :P

2011-01-16 [All_Most PUNK]: My prize for last year's competition hasn't arrived yet, Silvie. I just thought I'd let you know.

2011-01-16 [Viking]: What's the prize? Is it a Schrödinger Cat?

2011-01-16 [All_Most PUNK]: I hope so, but not sure.

2011-01-16 [Viking]: Maybe it's Wooly Mammoth DNA.

2011-01-16 [All_Most PUNK]: I'd prefer the cat, honestly.

2011-01-16 [All_Most PUNK]: 4 years! I'll be old, blind and deaf by that time.

2011-01-16 [Akayume]: In that order?

2011-01-16 [All_Most PUNK]: Probably.

2011-01-16 [Viking]: But imagine how many great things you could do once you had a herd of wooly mammoths!

2011-01-16 [Akayume]: ....Could you put a wooly mammoth into a box and call it Schrodinger's mammoth?

2011-01-16 [Viking]: It would take a pretty large box, but I don't see why not.

2011-01-16 [Akayume]: "The bigger the better"?
