If I spent as much time reading as I do organizing these challenges, I'd be halfway done by now! But here is the comprehensive list of the challenges I plan on undertaking. If I already posted the book list in a previous blog, I did not repost.
Series Challenge (began Dec. 1 2007; ends May 31 2008)http://cozymurders.blogspot.com/2007/09/series-challenge.html
Read a series of your choice.
I will be reading the Shannara series by Terry Brooks, of which two are also on my TBR alternate list.
TBR Challenge 2008 (begins Jan. 1, 2008; ends Dec. 31 2008)
Read 12 books on your TBR list in 12 months. (Already posted list)
Decades Challenge (begins Jan. 1 2008; ends Dec. 31 2008)
Read 8 books in 8 consecutive decades (Already posted list)
Note: I am doing this a little differently, because I misunderstood the challenge. Rather than reading books WRITTEN in 8 consecutive decades, mine are SET in 8 consecutive decades. I plan on keeping it this way even though it was a mistake because I think it sounds fun!
Young Adult Challenge (begins Jan. 1 2008; ends Dec. 31 2008)http://thoughtsofjoyblog.blogspot.com/2007/10/sweet-and-simple-choose-12-young-adult.html
Read 12 young adult novels (Already posted list)

Read 2 books out of your comfort zone or by authors you've never read.
