I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

End of Year Reading Challenge Updates

I am not going to finish a challenge, sigh. There were four books on my short list (read 3, reviewed 2) and nine books on an alternate list (read 8, reviewed 3). The thing is, I didn't read the short list :-( so my challenge isn't complete. The last open challenge to end in 2011 and I'm not going to finish.

So close.

The following are the challenges still open

52-52-52: requires one more book read between the 21 & 27

ALA's Top Ten 2010: read one book from the list but I have until 4-1-12 to read it. I've picked Hunger Games and it fits three other 2012 challenges so I'm waiting

Fall into Reading: One book short.

Monthly Mix-up Mania: This one has a closing date of 3-31-13! Just Nine more books but most of them are E's

Where Are You Reading? & 50 States: Not only did I fail to read a book from every state, I failed to do a google map to keep track of them! I've joined both for 2012 and am hoping for better luck.

I guess I should add Declutter and 400 Mile challenges. Those aren't being completed either.

There were 42 challenges on my 2011 challenge page plus 7 on my perpetual challenges page.
I have made little progress as far as perpetual challenges go but have completed .... 30!

Not bad.

I'm not sure if I really want to know how many I've already signed up to do next year, let along the one's I'm planned on signing up for.

That's a lot of challenges! The question if always this-- did you accomplish more than you would have if you didn't attempt the challenge? Probably so!
