Some More 2011 Book Challenges

No more after this! I told myself that I wouldn't do as many challenges as I did last year, and I am going to stick to it! XP

Manga Reading Challenge 2011

I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner, but I hold Caro of Portrait of A Woman entirely responsible for this reading challenge. She was asking about a Japanese literature challenge, which made me think of manga!

I'm going to aim to read 4 manga books a month (1 a week = very doable). Hopefully more, but we'll see. This is definitely a very fun challenge for me, I adore manga, anime and Japanese video games!

If you'd like to take part, why not try reading 1 manga a month to begin with? There is such a wide range of genres you'll be able to find something you'll enjoy :) 

 You can sign up here!

This challenge is basically to keep track of all of the manga that I'll be reading this year. Plus, it'll remind me to finish reading all of the manga in my TBR piles I still have. Great motivation, lol. I'm going to try to read at least 40 manga by the end of the year!

350 Page Books 2011 Challenge 

 The Guidelines:

·      *This challenge does not have to only include YA, but it should be predominantly YA that means at least 75% of the books you read should be young adult fiction.
·     * Each book MUST contain 350 pages or more.
·      *Only physical copies and e-books will count toward the challenge. (Sorry, but audio books don’t have pages!)
*YES, e-readers DO count! :) 
·       -You can add each book as you read them. You do NOT have to make a list.

One randomly picked participant will receive a massive prize pack with BOOKS and ARCs and SWAG!
You can go here to sign up!

Since I have so many thick books and at times feel too intimidated to read them since they're so long or I don't have the time to read such thick books, I thought that this challenge would really motivated me to get down and start reading them. :D
