It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

TBR Challenge Update

Remember my boxes? Nothing has changed with them. :-( I signed up for 5 challenges to help me whittle down my pile, failed one, completed two, and one includes 2012 books.

Goal: to read 25 books

Progress: only 10 more to go!

Goal: to read 1-5 books

Progress: Totally cheated on this one with the number of books to be read but wanted the satisfaction of some kind of progress

~Challenge Complete~
Jan 16

Goal: to read 15 books

Progress: tried for 30 last year and only tracked 9 before abandoning the challenge in June.

~Challenge Complete~
March 14

Goal: to read ONLY books from my TBR stack for 30 days.

Progress: Total. Fail.
I picked up a children's book while shopping and read it right there in the store! ("Happy Valentine's Day, Mouse", a board book!)

~Challenge Failed~
Jan 19

Goal: Any book you own

Progress: 15 books read from my pre-2012 TBR pile
How long does a book have to sit on the TBR pile before it isn't a new purchase anymore?

so, not counting 2012 purchases, library books, or ARCs....I've read 15 of my own books! I think that is GREAT progress. Now that I see it in black and white, maybe I can "Make a Dent" and read 30....or climb "Mt. Ararat" and read 40.... ;-)

You are amazing. I read two, may be three books a month and I think I'm all that.

Thanks Petrea, I imagine you're not reading more because of your writing and photography!
