So yes I’ve now been blogging for a year and 3 months – incredible that I love it so much and that I’m continuing! I remember browsing other blogs over the Christmas holiday… and that’s when I discovered this cool concept of Reading Challenges! So – yes of course I signed up for a “few”. Almost a year after signing up for all these Challenges I’m learning that well… I need to check-in and wrap them up. EEK!!! I’ve managed to keep my own challenge posts updated but I didn’t realize I had to add them to the Challenge host blogs as well – duh! So in an attempt to wrap-up my 2010 Challenges I’m going to use this posting. So here goes…
A FUN challenge! Maybe I’m doing this wrong – but rather than recreate the Challenge post please visit my Challenge page. I had a lot of fun trying to match book titles with the categories – I think the one that may be questionable is the Title one. I chose the word “Heir” as my title. Not sure if that one really counts or not 🙂 But I enjoyed it and I’m taking it on again in 2011. Stay tuned in to see how I do this year 🙂 2011 What’s In a Name Challenge
Hmmm… Um… I think I bit off more than I could chew.. OR I ended up buying WAY… too many books this year. Not sure if that’s a good thing or not. Ugh… However, the minimum to read was 25 and guess what I’m sitting at 25 on the nose! I’ll have to admit also that once I got my eReader I was more apt to buy eBooks… I’m a great advocate for our Libraries and will need to reconsider purchasing this coming year.
Now this is a challenge I’ve definitely mastered! I suspect I could easily reach 100 by the time December 31 rolls around. Check out my list here! And yes if this challenge runs again – I’m in!!!
Graphic Novels Challenge 2010 – This was a whole new area for me! Thought taking on a challenge that I would delve into this area. Well… I did read 6 which met my objectives for the Challenge but it didn’t really help me read more. It’s still an area that just never really grabbed me 😦 Check out what I read! here
So another challenge I thought I’d try… Well… I know there’s still a month left – but I think I’m going to admit defeat! I successfully read books that Met the criteria for all the categories but two: Charity and Older than You. Who knows maybe by December but highly unlikely. For the Charity category I agree with the concept but it just seemed that this year was either books from the Library OR more than likely books that I bought new or as an eBook. Older than You – it’s not that I’m THAT old – but my tendency has been to read book that have been newly released so that really didn’t help me out here. This was a TRUE challenge to me and I may try it again – depends on the categories 🙂 For now check what I read and how it fit into the categories!
I FAILED at this challenge! I knew what books I was going to read but just never got around to them. Love the concept behind this challenge and really thought I could do it but alas I could not. Thanks so much to BookLust for hosting this!
