2013 Baker’s Dozen Challenge


Name: 2013 A Baker’s Dozen Challenge
Type: Personal
Duration: 1 January 2013 – 31 December 2013
Goal: Read 39 books, based on the listed criteria.

I know I’m early, but I wanted to get my personal challenges posted so I don’t have to worry about them during the holidays.

I liked the idea of “By the Dozen” for 2012 so much that I decided that I had to do “A Baker’s Dozen” for 2013. After all, a baker’s dozen is 13.

The set up is the same as “By the Dozen“:

  • 1st Baker’s Dozen — 13 books first published in 2013
  • 2nd Baker’s Dozen — 13 books from the Perpetual Challenges (In Death, Georgette Heyer, and Star Wars Expanded Universe)
  • 3rd Baker’s Dozen —  13 books from various series I started or own

As of this posting, I’m not likely to reach my goal for the 2012 By the Dozen Challenge — though I’m doing better than previous years, I’ve only read 5 of the 12 needed for the 2nd dozen (In Death, Georgette Heyer, and Star Wars Expanded Universe).  I want to be successful with regards to the 2nd baker’s dozen in 2013.  Towards that end, I’ve given these books special consideration in the re-vamped Reading Has Its Rewards guidelines for 2013. Hopefully, that will be a strong incentive to read them.
