What is Simply...Challenging?

In brief, Simply...Challenging is my challenge blog. Here, I'm only listing the reading (and 1 writing) challenges I am/have taken part in, as well as book lists for each. My reviews are posted at Goodreads. Yes, it seems weird, but right now, it works for me. ;)

Read to Me Picture Book Challenge

1 January 2011 - 31 December 2011

Danielle from There's a Book is hosting the Read to Me Picture Book Challenge with two different categories to choose from - one for those with children and one for those without. 

Since I'm in the "without" category, the following are my levels of participation to choose from:
1.  Board Book - 12 picture books
2.  Unjacketed - 36 picture books
3.  Jacketed - 72 picture books
4.  Early Reader - 120 picture books
5.  Chapter Reader - 200 picture books

I simply adore picture books!  I'm especially lucky that I get to do children's programming (I'm in the babies/ones programmes currently, though I've done all from 0-10) and they pay me to look at picture books! ;)  Of course, I have to be a Chapter Reader ...
