2013 Hub Reading Challenge: Are You In?

So the HUB Reading Challenge began yesterday, and I didn't even know it. For years, I've been seeing blog posts about reading challenges and I've always wondered... Am I up to it? This year, I've decided to find out!

So now I have to vowed read (or listen to) at least 25 of the 83 challenge-eligible titles before 11:59 pm on Saturday, June 22. Eligible titles include 2013 winners and honor books of the six YALSA awards, Top Ten titles from YALSA’s 2013 selected lists, 2013 Schneider Family Book Award honorees, and 2013 Stonewall Book Award honorees. A complete list of eligible titles can be found here.

The bad news is that I've already read several of these books, so they don't count (unless I read them again). The good news is that I've already gotten started without even knowing it: I read Me and Earl and the Dying Girl—a YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults Top Ten selection—on Sunday, the first official day of the challenge :) Now only 24 more to go!

So... Is anyone crazy enough to join the challenge with me?

That's great Heather! You can keep up with the books I'm reading for the challenge (and any reviews posted) here:

We'd love to hear about your progress, too, if you want to chime in every now and then!

Okay so I'm late to this reading party but I'm a fast reader!! I think I will take the challenge!

In June I'm going to Europe so having a bag full of books is a great way to fill in the long flights!

Created a new LibraryThing for this challenge:

Good for you Bethany. I sort of stalled out—haven't read anything not directly for work or school lately—but I have high hopes for this weekend :) Good luck in the challenge!
