2013 Ebook Challenge

The 2013 Ebook Challenge is hosted by Sarah over at Workaday Reads.
Why I decided to join this challenge half way through the year:
I don't own a physical e-reader but I downloaded Kindle PC to my computer a month or two ago and since then I have accumulated about 500 e-books. (Thanks a ton, Kindle Freebies.) I've realized that I read slower on the computer than I do with a physical book so I haven' t read many e-books yet but I've recently received a couple of e-books for review so I feel obligated to set aside some time to read them. Because I read slower on the computer and because I tend to stray to doing other things while on it, I thought a challenge might help me stay on track and knock out some of my 'to-read Library'.
My goals:
I really don't want to put too big of a goal on myself because I don't know how I will do or how many ebooks I will have a chance to read. I basically want to focus on reading the e-books I have received for review to start with and then move on to all those awesome freebies I have accumulated if I have the time between reading all the physical books that I also need/want to read.
I'm aiming towards at least 10 e-books.
So: Level - CD
E-books I Need and Want to Read Soon

I don't think I will get around to reading more than one or two e-books this month but I will be participating in a 'read-a-thon' at the beginning of July and plan on getting through a few e-books that week. (I'll also be writing for Camp NaNoWriMo that week so I probably won't get a ton of reading done.)
At the end of each month I will make a post with my e-book challenge progress.
