Goodreads Reading ChallengeI’m probably just a sucker for competition, but last year I signed up for the 2013 Goodreads Reading Challenge, and this year I’m back for more.

I’ve always been a bookworm anyway, but it’s kind of neat to catalogue your books for the year, to look back at the covers of the books you read, and to feel satisfied with your virtual list – whether or not you meet your reading goals. And wow, I even know I read 12,053 novel pages in 2013. How cool is that? : )

I really enjoy Goodreads. It’s a great way for me to check out new books, learn about authors I hadn’t heard of before, and see what others think about books.

Goodreads Reading ChallengeParticipating in the reading challenge is just a way for me to check in more regularly with the site.

And you, readers? Do you use Goodreads? What do you think? Do you participate in the annual reading challenges?

Whether you do or not, may your 2014 be filled with wonderful books!
