  1. I’m going to give it a try again next year. This past year, I just failed miserably at keeping track. I’m pretty sure I made my goal level (though I’d have to go back and check) but without tracking, it’s hard to be sure. 2013, though…. 2013 I will be much better! 🙂

    I’m going to shoot for CD level.

  2. Yay! This year I was trying to be a super, super stickler for a while and only counting books that had been released in ebook format only then I realized I’d never get to my goal that way. I read mostly on my Kindle so it didn’t make sense. Once I went back and marked all of the books I had read that were ebooks, no conditions, I easily met my goal. Keeping track of it with a tag made it soooo easy.

    Thanks for hosting. Sarah! I’m going for Server this year.

  3. I got an e-reader half way through last year so I easily completed my goal this year. I’m going debating between DVD/Memory Stick this next year now that my aversion to ebooks is over!

  4. I really enjoyed participating last year and even surpassed my goal! So this year I am going for the DVD option! Thanks for hosting!

  5. Slowly getting more organized. I think I will stick with the CD, one a month is about right for me.

    I am using a GoodReads Shelf for my 2013 e-books:

  6. Thanks for hosting this challenge again, Sarah!

  7. I’m in . I just got to remember to post review to the linky monthly. I’m going for 75 books Hard Drive but am sure I can read more. Figure it’s better to be conservative though

  8. I’m in. I have reached my goal of 100 ebooks this year and that will also be my goal in 2013.

    Thanks for hosting.

  9. my third time to participate and i’m looking forward to next year! 🙂

  10. First time but I’ve got a huge list for next year. I think I’m going to aim for 75. 🙂

  11. Love this challenge! eBooks are new to me, so I’m going for ten books next year 🙂 Hugs from Anette in Norway 🙂

  12. I would like to sign up for the DVD level but I am going to really try to hit memory stick (but without knowing what next year holds, I want to sign up for an achievable level)

  13. I am so excited about this challenge. This is my first reading challenge. I am working for CD, but I would be thrilled if I make DVD. 🙂

  14. I’m signing up for the Ebook 2013 Challenge. I’m shooting for the DVD – 25 ebooks level but might end up in the Memory Stick level with just they way I read. I can’t wait for New Years to begin!!

  15. Can’t wait to try this one this year! I never thought I would read my Kindle as much as I seem to, so thought I may as well sign up for this one this year. 🙂 Thanks for hosting!

  16. I’m definitely going to try it this year. 🙂 I have a bunch of ebooks just ready to be read!

  17. Thanks, this is a great challenge, I just bought a Nook Tablet so most of what I read is in ebook format

  18. do I have to review? YIkes! that means I totally failed for 2012

  19. I’m really excited for this challenge!! It doesn’t bother me reading with ecopies so I’m confident that I’ll reach my goal 🙂

  20. Hi this is a fab challenge and a great way to get everyone together . . I am a new follower and saw your link on Little Book Star’s site so thanks Leigh 🙂 xxx

  21. This will be my second year. I will go up from cd to DVD level! Looking forward to reading some more!

  22. Woo hoo! This sounds like fun! I’m in.

  23. This is my first year doing reading challenges and I would love to participate in this one. I have a Nook and Kindle ereader and love them both, so this challenge will be a lot of fun for me :). My Goal is going to be DVD 25 Books!

  24. Also, I will be posting my reviews on Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. The link to my Goodreads profile is:

  25. I have signed up. Just the lowest level, but ebooks are new to me. Thanks for hosting.

  26. I’m going for Memory Stick–50 books.

  27. Can’t wait to get started! Will be posting on my blog too . . .worthy2read.wordpress.com

  28. I’m going to sign up for 10 ebooks to start……….. 🙂

  29. Looking forward to this year’s challenge.

  30. My blog is in limbo, so I’ve signed up via Pinterest for now. My link goes to the direct pin. I’m in for CD level, but it’ll probably go up throughout the year, and I’ll adjust the information accordingly. 🙂

  31. I did really well with this challenge last year but kept forgetting to link up my reviews at the end of each month. I need to work on that!

  32. Once again, I enter in an attempt to clear some of my ever-expanding electronic bookshelf. I hope I remember to update monthly, but I do have a GoodReads account to help in that regard as well. Good luck in your reading adventures, all. 🙂

  33. This is the only challenge I actually finished last year! Forgot to link my reviews, but I’ll try to remember this year. Here’s to a great 2013!

  34. Just the challenge I was looking for. Im going in for the Cd Level but I am hoping to read at least 15 ebooks.

  35. Thanks for this challenge! I’m going for 50 books!

  36. Thank you for hosting! Going for the DVD challenge with a chance of bumping up later!

  37. This is my first year. I am only signing up for this and the TBR challenge as I am so busy blogging and in the spring and summer gardening that I don’t want to over-extend myself. I’ll see how these go and then decide for next year.

  38. Since I’ve read 16 ebooks so far and am currently reading two more, I better commit to Memory Stick I think. I haven’t blogged about all the books I’ve read so far, but have written brief Goodreads reviews for each of them.

  39. I am writing reviews on the books I read. My question is, where do I add these books for the challenge?

  40. If y’all are looking for a free one to lump onto your early list, one of my new titles is currently FREE at amazon. Not sure for how much longer (thinking this might be the last day!) so you best step on it!
