I've finally finished the Spring Reading Thing Challenge, which feels really great! I got a lot of reading done and was able to accomplish the goal of getting books off my TBR list...always a plus!I had originally placed 18 books on my list, 16 of which I actually completed, but I did substitute 2 more for the 2 I didn't finish. I also had 3 bonus books, finishing a total of 21 books for that particular challenge. Yay me!
I'm now in the midst of the Summer Reading Challenge 2, which I've pledged to read 11 books for which 2 bonus/alternate books for a total of 13 (already done with 2) I'm also participating in the Non-Fiction 5, which I'm obviously reading 5 books for, with one alternate/bonus selection (done with 1). Starting July 1st is my final challenge, the Book Award Challenge, which requires at least 12 books be read in a year from various award lists. Easy enough!
I obviously love these challenges, mainly because they make me read books I've been wanting to read forever, as well as discover new books and authors. It's a win win situation folks! Plus, if I don't finish something, no one will be knocking on my door to arrest me (will you)?
