  1. It looks like I made it to Mr Linky first. I'm not anxious or anything. Really. *wink* Thanks, Robin!

  2. I'm still reading in 2012 but stopped posting after the 52 - got busy with other things here. Really fun! Looking forward to the "Dusty Books" challenge for 2013 - have plenty of those and I need to clear out my bookshelves!
    Thanks for hosting this - so happy I found you!

  3. I'm not sure if I'll make it to 52 (or beyond) again this coming year, but I like posting and seeing what others are reading.

  5. I signed up and then decided I want to use Blogger instead of Wordpress. How can I change my linky?

    1. I'll delete it and you can repost. I hate Wordpress. Blogger is really much easier.

  6. I am going to do it in the coming year!!! I am currently 16 books behind for 2012... one a day to make the goal this time around seems too much, especially with Christmas coming up. Good luck to everyone who is participating!

    1. Just do the best you can, don't worry about the numbers and if you enjoyed your reading, that's the most important part. Glad you are joining in.

  9. I'm back for another round! I've actually read more than 52 books in 2012--but I have been sticking strictly to the reporting one book for each week schedule....so I've got to get a few more books read before I'll declare myself done.

  21. I am going to give it a shot - I think I linked to one of the mini challenge posts though and not the main one on my page - it should have linked to here - http://booksandneedlepoint.blogspot.com/2012/12/miscellaneous-reading-challenges-2013.html

  28. Hi guys,
    Every Monday starting tomorrow I'll link my favorite book review of the week in my blog. I don't know if anyone has done it before or is doing it but I'm hoping to encourage meaningful discussions. You never know, the review might persuade you to pick up the book even if it's outside your normal genre.

  29. Thanks for hosting Robin! Although I officially joined for the second year I just got around to writing my official 2013 Challenges List post so I linked that up. I am going to try to participate in the Dusty Mini Challenge and the Inspiration Mini Challenge as well this year!

    I did not have a chance to write a wrap-up but I love the questions you did and hope to do better at that type of thing this year!

  31. How do I add your button to my blog side bar? I cannot find the HTML to put in there, or do I do it differently? Thanks

    ReplyDelete

    1. I didn't make one up with html. Just copy and paste the picture widget to your computer. Add a image gadget and use the www.read52booksin52weeks.com for the link.

  32. This is my first book reading challenge. I know I am a bit late but I would like to start right off. I am currently reading Paulo Coelho's Alepha which I plan to finish by the weekend. I can make up for these last 3 weeks by doing a double in forthcoming weeks. I am excited to be here.
