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!)

Once Upon a Time there was a Fantasy Challenge . . .

By the time I heard about it, it had changed hosts/format then I forgot about it. It's back!

The Fantasy Project
Sep 1, 2013 to Aug 31, 2023

hosted by Michelle from The True Book Addict at The Fantasy Project . . . at a new blog.

My original post is here. None of the info has changed, except adding a couple of books to my tbr pile.

My list of books is here, it has all 813 titles on it with the ones I've read in purple.

I'm currently working on listing which ones I already have on my shelves. It is a bigger project than I expected. I have shelves to look at and boxes which are listed at LibraryThing but I also have boxes/shelves in the garage and two bedrooms and there are no listings for them and no easy way to check what is in/on them. sigh This was supposed to be my project this summer.

Of the Top 101 I have the following on my shelves or have read them. Most I have no desire to re-read at this time but several I do (Harry Potter anyone?)

    Great list!I've read most of them and some are on my TBR list aswell.

    You had me when you said Harry Potter. also a good way to start a list.

    I want to catalogue my library as well. There's a program to do that you know. but I'm still looking for the right one.

    Wow, these long term challenges are intense! It's funny because I'm working on reading through the Dewey Decimal system, which will definitely take years, but I find these challenges that have a set long term time frame very intimidating.

    Petrea Burchard said...

    I'm not very organized about what I read, but I love it all.

    Michelle Stockard Miller said...

    I'm so glad you're back with me on the challenge! Great list. I think we share a few titles too.

    We have a Goodreads group now and I think we will do our first Wheel of Fortune spin for Sept/Oct. I have a post up over at the blog.
