Beat Your Best Read-a-Thon

The "Beat Your Best" Read-a-Thon is hosted here at KaKiJoKoJa.

The Info:

Beat Your Best is a brand new read-a-thon, running Nov 15-22. ByB is a completely laid back challenge in which you choose how you will beat your own personal best when it comes to reading. This can be done in small or big ways, and is just meant to encourage you to push yourself with your reading in any way that you choose.

The Beat Your Best Read-a-Thon can be done in a variety of ways. For example ~
  • The longest book you've read is 450 pages, so you read one that is longer
  • The most books you've read in a week is 3, so you read at least 4
  • The most pages you've read in a day is 500, so you read more than that
  • You found a new author who you've enjoyed just one book of, so you read 2 more
  • You've read most of a series but never finished, so you get that series completed

The examples can go on and on. This challenge is only about pushing yourself and your personal best, no matter if it's something big or small. It can be as little as reading more of a new-to-you genre or author, and as much as reading multiple books a day. It's all up to you and what you can do, and what you want to do!!

This is last minute this time, as I'm starting up another challenge and though this would be a fun way to jump start my reading for that. I figure I will set this up every other month or so, as we can always push ourselves for just one more page, just one more book! :)

Signup below with a link to your Signup Post, indicating you plan on joining. You don't need a blog to join in, anywhere you track your reading is fine, you can even just use GoodReads. Just link up to where you are keeping track and let us know what you are challenging yourself to do

Be sure to check back often. I'll be updating my own progress and will likely do a few challenges as well. Have fun, and Beat Your Best! :)

As for me, and my challenge, I have a bunch of series that I have read most of that have one or two more left in the series and I never finished them out. I'm out to Beat my Best by completing at least 3 series that I have at least 1 book left to read to be completely caught up to the current book, or completely done with the series.
