I have now completed this challenge at the highest level of Gorilla Glue: to read 30+ books. Book 30, The Demigod Diaries by Rick Riordan, I finished 13th of April. I will most likely end up reading as many books shorter than 300 pages as last year.
All posts for this challenge are HERE.

I've decided to run the Quick Fix Challenge again for 2014!
So about the challenge?
I find that many times when a reading challenge has to do with a book's size it usually about reading bigger books. Sometimes, because I'm in between books, life is getting out of hand, or things are just getting in the way, there's just not enough time to read a big book. Who says bigger is better anyway? Sometimes things break and all you need is a little tape and it'll hold. So this is the "Quick fix Challenge" whether it's a love for smaller books, or just trying to squeeze in a quick read, or maybe times running out and you need to read in some more books quickly. This is a challenge about reading books with less than 300 pages.
- The challenge runs from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014.
- Sign ups will be open until mid December.
- You don't have to be a blogger to participate. However, leave a comment and tell me what level you're aiming for.
- For bloggers, post up a challenge sign up post saying what level you've signed up for. Be sure to sign-up with your sign-up post in the linky.
- You don't have to review the books you read however if you do, you will be able to post your links to your reviews (the post will be up on New Years day).
- Books have to have less than 300 pages to count.
- Books such as MG/YA, graphic novels/manga, audio, rereads, anthologies and short stories, can count toward your goal.
- Feel free to crossover the books you read for this challenge with other challenges.
(If you have any questions feel free to ask, I feel like I might be missing something here.)
Now the Levels/It will hold with:
