Will a 2012 Challenge button automatically come up on the home page there?

I finished off the 2011, exceeded my goal, and want to start off the new year with my first book of the year and not have to play catch-up like I did this year.

I looked around there and didn't see any 2012 challenges yet.  Maybe its automatic on Jan 1.

That's what I'm hoping, Sherri. This is my first year (well, 4 months) with GR so I don't know how they operate.

Yes, there will be a announcement come up on the right inviting you to set you goal for 2012. But it won't happen until the first.

My link is in my signature if anyone wants to add me.

I set my goal at the beginning of 2011 and exceeded it. So I upped my number and exceeded it again. So I upped it again and alas, I'm not going to hit this goal. I'll fall two books short. :-(  I was going to read a couple of novellas on my Kindle at work today (it's a bit slow), but I forgot to bring it. So I was going to read them after work, but I just got a call text about a get-together that my friends want me to come to. Oh well. LOL

I have my profile link in my signature if anyone wants to friend me. 

If you start posting in groups-you'll start getting friend invites. I get a couple  a week that way. If you rate/review books, you'll even get authors asking to friend you.  I'm "friends" with several well known authors on there-some that friended me when I rated a book of theirs and some that I friended. 

I forgot to look for the 2012 Challenge.
