So, I managed to complete two of the challenges that I signed up to early this year. Not so bad, I suppose? However, I do realise that I read too much fantasy/paranormal books, so I am determine to balance my reading choices a little bit in 2011! Other than that, I am also looking forward to reduce the number of books that I have on my TBR shelf. 2010 has certainly be a great reading year for me as I managed to finished 115 books to-date and I'm hoping that this trend will continue next year.

So, what is your resolution for 2011 reading-wise? Is there something that you hope to improve?


  1. Historical Fiction Challenge....failed. Haha!!! Maybe 2011 you can try one more time. Congratulations!! for finishing the other two shy!!

  2. I also failed to finished one challenge. But i will sign up again for next year =) Btw, congrats Shy!

  3. Shy & Darlyn, Me too. I failed one challenge. Great job with completing the other two. :)

  4. I signed up for 2011 challenges so I hope I will make them!
    But succeeding in two out of 3 challenges isn't bad at all!
    In any case, congrats!
