The 50 Book Challenge is not for everyone, so I thought we'd try a smaller and additional challenge this year for those who are too busy to digest a solid 50 -as they usually would- or who tend to read more slowly. The point of a challenge is to be challenged though, so if you can easily get through 50 books in a year then that challenge is probably the one for you.

I've tweaked these rules a teensy bit to differ from Darkchilde's thread.

1. 30 books.
2. A book must be at least 50 pages long.
3. Books you started in 2011 and finish in 2012 count in the 2012 challenge.
4. Re-reads count.
5. If a volume contains two books, which are usually classed as separate titles, then they count as two (e.g. a book of Dostoevsky's Notes From The Underground and The Double counts as two).
6. There are no rules on what titles you must read.
7. This is for fun so enjoy yourself.

This year's challenge is just to test the waters. If I end up with a thread made up entirely of my own posts, then I'll know there's no demand and probably decide against running another challenge next year.

Off we go!
