Monthly Wrap-Up

Monthly Wrap-Up: April 2012

So I decided to start doing a monthly  wrap-up to help myself get more organized and see how much I have left to do it my challenges.  I’ve seen this done on a few blogs and like to see the progress listed in one place.  So here goes my first attempt.

Back to the Classics Challenge: 3/9 (33.3%)

I really need to pick up the pace with this one.  This was the first challenge I signed up for.  When I first started it, I had a whole idea of how I wanted to complete it (in conjunction with my other challenges) but that whole thing turned on its head.  Now I’m just reading what I want, when I want and if it fits in a category, then yay!   But, I may have to throw Moby Dick to the side and find another book for the first category.  I haven’t picked it up since putting it down back in January and I don’t think I can bring myself to try again… But I won’t give up yet!

What’s in a Name? Challenge: 1/6 (16.7%)

I’ve definitely neglected this one.  I think it’s because most of the books I selected for this were on my TBR list on Goodreads, but I don’t actually have them yet…so I should take a look on Amazon and see if I can get some cheap for the Kindle, or if I can borrow digital copies from my  library.  (it’s way easier for me to borrow digital copies than  actually get to the library!).

50 States Challenge: 5/50 (10%)

I still haven’t even selected all 50 books for this.  It’s much more difficult than I thought!  I do have 11 listed (not including the ones I’ve read) for some of the states, but that still leaves quite a number of states without a book.  When I read my books I keep in mind where the setting is so I can try to add it to this challenge.  Though, most often, I’ve already read a book that takes place in that state, or the story takes place in a different country… any suggestions???

Historical Fiction Challenge: 3/20 (15%)

Since there are no categories, I have a bit more freedom in this.  Even though I’m not very far in the challenge, I’m not concerned because I know I’ll fill this list by the end of the year.

Mount TBR Challenge: 3/25 (12%)

I have MANY books on my Kindle and my physical book shelf to fill this category…I just need to read them!  Again, not really concerned with this, plus I only signed up for it in March.  I’ll get it done by the end of the year!

Overall Reading Challenge: 17/75 (22.7%)

I only have 16 listed because I still haven’t written the review on my most recently finished book.  I’ll get it up there sometime this week.

    1. Well, these posts are just wraps ups (updates of what I’ve done each month). If you go on over to the 2012 page, you’ll see a list of the challenges, with descriptions and links to the blogs that host them. Each challenge requires a type of book or a number of books to read throughout the year. In my first my blogging year, I got a little over ambitious and joined too many! 🙂
