Ebook Challenge 2013

The 2013 Ebook Challenge is a new one for me. We only purchased a tablet and got the Kindle App in September of this year. And we recently purchased the Kindle Paperwhite. I have read two fiction books in e-book format and am in the middle of one non-fiction book.

As described at the Workaday Reads blog, the goal is "Encouraging readers to expand past just physical books to embrace ebooks in all forms, whether on Kindle, Kobo, computer, or any other reader."

Challenge Guidelines:
  1. This challenge will run from Jan 1, 2013 – Dec 31, 2013.
  2. Anyone can join, you don’t need to be a blogger. If you don’t have a blog, feel free to sign-up in the comments. You can post reviews to any book site (i.e. Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, Goodreads, etc).
  3. Any genre or length of book counts, as long as it is in ebook format.
  4. You can plan your books in advance or as you read them.
  5. When you sign up in the linky, put the direct link to your post about joining the E-Book Reading Challenge.
  6. You can move up levels, but no moving down.
  7. Sign-ups will be open until Dec 15, 2013, so feel free to join at any time throughout the year.
At the beginning of each month there will be a roundup post for you to add your reviews for that month.

There are levels, and they range from 5 books to 150 books (Wow!).  Check in here to sign up if you want to join in.

I am going to sign up at the Floppy disk level = 5 e-books.  I am already overextended on challenges and I don't want to push myself too hard.

These are the e-books I have read this year:

 Old Man's War by John Scalzi
The Loyal Servant by Eva Hudson

  1. My new year's resolution is to use my neglected kndle more. I've just cleared out all the unread books that were sitting there and am starting afresh. It is so much easier when you have only a few good quality books to read.

  2. Tracy - I hope you'll truly enjoy using the Kindle way of reading. I have to admit I really like 'real' paper books. But I do love my Kindle. So convenient and it makes it possible for me to live in complete denial about the number of books I've not yet read. ;-)
