Well, since I just joined a new challenge (that being the New Authors Challenge), I figured it was time for some challenge updates. I recently completed the Summer Reading Challenge, having read 13 books for that. I didn't get to Inkspell since it was constantly checked out at my library, but I did read both of my bonus/alternate selections, so it evened out just fine.
As for the Non-Fiction Five Challenge, we are nearing the end of our journey with just August and September left. My August selection just wasn't my cup of tea at the time (no pun intended), so used an alternate I've been meaning to read. Though Marley & Me is not exactly heavy non-fiction, it is something I can relate to as I have a Marley myself. Crazy dog syndrome! I just started it and am really looking forward to finishing it.
I just added two bonus/alternate books to my New Author Challenge list.
I am two books in to the year-long Book Award Challenge and am trying to stick to the "one book a month" deal. We'll see how that goes.
I think that's it! I am really looking forward to any fall challenges and of course will probably join them all. What can I say? Addiction maybe?
