Last year I focused a lot on Science Fiction and the many sub-genre's therein. For 2013 I plan to do the same as I feel I have barely touched the tip of that particular bookberg. I also added last year a secondary challenge of another set of categories with a smaller quota to fill. I have really enjoyed doing that so it will also make it in to 2013 in the form of a stepped challenge, which will just increase my enjoyment of it. Also there is a space for The Sandman series, another for my categories for next year's challenge and a spot for my school books as I work in an elementary school library and it's just nice to have an accounting of how many books I read from work.
1. Ray Bradbury. It was with great sorrow that he passed last year and my way of coping with this loss was to hunt down copies of the books of his that I do not own. I will never have them all but currently I have quite the TBR stack to be getting on with so I will be incorporating him in as many categories as I can (as he would have been the first to tell you that he isn't just a science fiction writer and I say that he was so much more).
2. From Books to Screen (I love hunting down the movies to go with the books).
3. Science Fiction (for those pesky books that will not fit into a specific genre).
4. Nebula Prize Winners.
5. Female Sci-fi Authors (borrowed from dorsvenabili).
6. Winston Science Fiction Series (from 1952 - 1960).
7. Doctor Who.
9. Sookie Stackhouse. I have been following her story with great interest over the last couple of years and in 2013 her story will end at book 13.
10. Scandinavian Mystery.
12. 1001 Books.
13. Reading Fallout (books that are mentioned in other books, group reads, and recommendations from other LTer's).

Looks like you have covered most if not all of the bases with your categories!
I try to! After an awful experience with my first challenge in 2010 this year was better, I am hoping next year will be even better than that.
Yay, a Jane Austen category! I'll definitely be checking to see what you read for that one!
Woo Hoo! A new month and a new challenge... everyone having fun yet? I am having a great time.
Phew! Finished the '13 by 13' this morning, now I can just cruise the next two months wrapping up the 'plus' leftovers. I have some serious doubts about doing the 14 challenge next year...
I think that most people aren't planning on reading 14 books in 14 categories but are setting more realistic challenges. Hopefully you'll consider giving it a shot.
It is only because I will be travelling next year as well as starting first year courses in literature that I am feeling ambivalent about next year's challenge... I haven't entirely made my mind up yet, but think that it would be nice to slow down a bit so that I can write more about what I read.
Congrats! I have set only a half challenge for myself next year - 7 books in 7 categories - so feel free to come up with what might fit with your busy year... no point setting up a challenge that isn't do-able because of real life commitments. ;-)
