The 2012 Chunkster Challenge and Chunky Book Club


January 1 – December 31, 2012

2012 will be here before we know it – and The Chunkster Challenge is back. This year Vasilly from 1330V has joined me in hosting this popular challenge…and we’ve made a couple of changes (including moving the start date up to January 1st) which you can read about on the sign up post. We have also decided to spruce up the blog and make it more whimsical, so I hope you’ll check out our new look too.

The other exciting news is that we are planning on hosting the first ever Chunky Book Club. It will have its own page on the Chunkster Blog and participants do not have to join the challenge, although they are welcome to do both, of course! We currently have a poll going to choose the four books we will be reading and discussing in 2012…that poll will be open through January 10th with the results and schedule being announced on the blog on January 11th.

There may be more changes happening over there, and we hope to have some fun commentary and highlight some chunky books throughout the year…so I hope you’ll subscribe to the blog and keep up to date as we go forward.

I am still working on the 2011 challenge – and have two more books to read before the end of January. I’ll be signing up for the 2012 Challenge once I figure out the level I hope to do.

What about you? Are you planning to read some chunky books in 2012? Why not join us either in the Chunkster Challenge or the Chunky Book Club (or both) – we’d love to have you there!!!

    Good luck, Wendy!

    Aha! That explains the change of dates. I will mostly likely sign up for 2012 even though I’ve only read 1 book that qualifies for 2011. Hoping to push myself more in 2012. :)

    This is a great challenge and club, and if even if I don’t join officially, I am going to have to think about participating! Good luck with all of this!

    YAY! SO glad to see that many of you will be joining us! I was so happy that Vasilly wanted to join me over there and we have lots of exciting ideas to bring some life back to a challenge that has been so popular in the past!!! Thanks for your support :)

    I tried to resist. Really, I did. I’ve been challenge-free for two years, but I feel like this one could be fun. Off to sign up now!

    So, I’d join the challenge. Good luck to you and good luck to me too!
