New Reading Challenges for 2014

As I am getting my New Years Resolutions for 2014 together I want to pick a few reading challenges to help with my bookish goals.  There are just so many reading challenges out there, it makes it impossibly hard to pick which ones to sign up for.  I just keep telling myself to be realistic and not to get too carried away.  Like I did last year. So this year I am going to try a few new ones and keep up with a few old ones.
