Challenges for 2012!

In Uncategorized on December 30, 2011 at 4:57 pm

I have officially entered 2 reading challenges for 2012:

The Eclectic Reader Challenge

and

The TBR Double Dare

The Double Dare only runs through April 1st……which is good.  It will be a challenge to make it all the way to April without starting a brand new book.

Are there any other good challenges out there?  Suggestions?

Something new for 2012!

I recently learned about the site  Novel Challenges and wanted to add a few of the challenges to my New Year’s Resolutions. 

I’m also always looking for ways to help my kids learn outside the classroom and reading plays a huge part in that……I often find cool “extra credit” activities for kids and would like a community to share those with and get additional ideas from.

So, if I wanted to participate in challenges, maybe start a kids challenge for my 2 little ones (and any of yours that want to participate) AND share all of the cool books/sites/learning apps/toys/activities I come across this year, I thought a blog would be the way to do it!

Hope to meet fellow readers and parents who are interested reading, playing and learning along with their kids!
