Challenges Old and New

Clearly, I signed up for too many challenges in 2011 (2011 Challenges). I did manage to complete Memorable Memoirs and the Foodie’s Reading Challenge. I came oh, so close, in the What’s In a Name challenge, the British Books Challenge, and the Buy One Book and Read It Challenge. I probably did complete some of those, but fell down in the tracking. I barely got started with the Civil War Challenge and the Book Blogger Recommendation Challenge.

Learning from my mistakes, I’m signing up for only three challenges for 2012. We’ll see how that goes. I will keep track on my Challenges page as well at the hosting sites.

button for Foodie's Read ChallengeSince the Foodies Read Challenge matches up so well with one of my favorite weekly events, Weekend Cooking¬†at Beth Fish Reads, I’m going for broke and signing up for the Cordon-Bleu Chef level of 19 books or more.


2012 Ireland Reading Challenge graphicOur travel plans in 2012 include a trip to Ireland, so I’m joining the 2012 Ireland Reading Challenge at the Shamrock level of 4 books.


What's in a Name challenge buttonEven though I wasn’t quite successful with the 2011 challenge, I had so much fun that I’m playing again in the What’s In a Name 5 challenge. This is the one where you find titles to match the selected themes. See the post at Beth Fish Reads for this year’s categories.

    Welcome to the Ireland Challenge! (And I am more than a little bit jealous about your trip….) :)

    I’m so glad you joined Foodies Read 2 for the second year. I’ve enjoyed reading about the books you’ve discovered this past year. Good luck in 2012 with your Coron Bleu level and with your other challenges as well.

  3. Ireland…(sigh). I wish I could move there. I hope you have a wonderful time.

    Good luck with your challenges, I’m only doing one myself (the British Books Challenge). I hope you had a fantastic time in Ireland too… I’ve never been, but would love to go sometime.

    Let the reading beginning-at least with the foodie challenge it is a subject that you enjoy so it should be easy.
