Well, one of the best things about Bloggiesta was that I found a TON of 2010 challenges that I want to take part in. Here’s my post stating my intentions to join them! And because I’m joining so many, here’s some anchor links to help you figure out which ones are in the posts:

Audio Book Challenge || 10 in 10 Teen Chick Lit Challenge ||
The Chain Reading Challenge || E-Book Reading Challenge ||
In the Middle Reading Challenge || YA Reading Challenge

Royal Reviews is hosting an audio book challenge. Because I’ve only listened to two audio books in my whole life, I’m going for the smallest level — Curious — and will be listening to three audio books this year!

Kay Cassidy and Jessica of Chick Lit Teens are co-hosting a reading challenge. The goal is simple — read 10 teen chick lit titles this year. I don’t have my list yet, but I’m so excited to join this challenge. I love chick lit!

Karin from The Book Jacket is asking us to find connections between books; to create a chain. So, if I read “Shiver” by Maggie Stiefvater and use the main character’s name (Grace) as my link, I can start reading “The Dark Divine” who also has a Grace for a main character. Or I could have read another book set in Minnesota. Or about werewolves. You get the idea. I’m going to try my hardest to complete a chain of eight books. I’m not going to list them now though so that I can be free to think of them naturally as I read.

Royal Reviews is hosting an e-book reading challenge. Since I just purchased a Nook, I figured this would be the perfect challenge for me to do this year. I’m going for the highest level — Obsessed — where my goal will be to read 20 e-books this year.

Jill from The O.W.L. wants us all to read some middle grade fiction this year! Now, this is an area I should pay more attention to because while I love YA and am a YA librarian, I also need to connect to the tweens in my library on their way to becoming teens! So, I’ve chosen to participate in the highest level — an 8th Grader — which means I need to read 10 middle grade books. Looking forward to it!

J. Kaye’s Book Blog is hosting the YA reading challenge. I know, I know — for me this challenge was a bit of a “duh” moment. As if…why haven’t I heard of THIS ONE before? And why hadn’t I joined? Well, I have now! I will be reading at the “Super Size Me” level, which challenges me to read 75 YA books.
