I am pretty proud of myself, reader friends. Remember all those crazy challenges I signed up for this year? Of the five, I've already finished TWO! And it's not even the halfway point of the year. PATS ON THE BACK, YO.
The two that I finished are:
Audiobook Challenge (hosted by Teresa's Reading Corner)
I signed up to listen to at least 6 audiobooks and finished it when I completed The Round House last week. I considered upping it to the next level (12 audiobooks), but I am going to lose my work commute in August when we move, so chances are I wouldn't make it. However, I do hope to squeeze in another 1-2 before then.
Foodies Read Challenge (hosted by Foodies Read)
This wasn't tough, since I love food books so much! I signed up for Pastry Chef level (4-8 food books) and hit #4 when I finished Pollan's Cooked last week. I may throw in a few more throughout the year, but probably not enough to get above 8, so I'd say I'm done at this point.
As for my other three challenges...two are going great. They are both monthly challenges (with a different category to fill each month) so I can't finish them until December, but so far I am right on track with both. That's the Keyword Challenge and the Around The World in 12 Books Challenge. As for the fifth one...let's just say the TBR Challenge is going to be a total wash. I signed up to read 24 books from my TBR pile at home and so far I've read...1. LAAAAAAAAAAAAME. But there are just too many good library books and ARCs right now!! Maybe next year...
Did you sign up for any 2013 challenges? How are they going so far?
