2013 Quick Fix Challenge

Hi, everyone! Time for a 2013 Reading Challenge!!

This challenge is being hosted by Jessie at Jessie's Book Place.

Here are the details copied from Jessie's blog:
2013 Quick Fix Challenge

Challenge Details:

The challenge runs from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013.

Sign ups will be open until mid December.

You don't have to be a blogger to participate. However, leave a comment and tell me what level you're aiming for.

For bloggers, post up a challenge sign up post saying what level you've signed up for. Be sure to sign-up with your sign-up post in the linky.

You don't have to review the books you read however if you do, you will be able to post your links to your reviews here. (I'll have a post up for reviews up in January.)

Books have to have less than 300 pages to count.

Books such as MG/YA, graphic novels/manga, audio, rereads, can count toward your goal.

*Updated* Anthologies and short stories count as well. (I can't believe I forgot about these.)

Feel free to crossover the books you read for this challenge with other challenges.

(If you have any questions feel free to ask, I feel like I might be missing something here, but I could be wrong.)

Now the Levels/It will hold with:

String: 5 books

Paperclips: 10 books

Duck tape: 15 books

Gorilla glue: 20+ books
