State of the Blog: Part Three, the Challenges



This is the last of my three quarterly blog assessment posts.  The first part addressed my book lists. Part Two ran through my author lists.  This part deals with the challenges I joined this year.

Four times a year, I take a look at what books I've read to that point and see what kind of progress I've made on my books lists and reading projects.  I do it mostly to force myself to update my lists, not because these are particularly interesting posts.

The list of all the challenges I joined this year is here.  So far, I've completed 8 of the 24, made progress on most of them, and haven't started one.


First, the three challenges I am hosting here at Rose City Reader.  There is still time to sign up! Click on the title to go to the main challenge page.

  Second, the challenges I've joined:

I've read a lot of book with my ears -- 35 out of my goal of 40 -- but haven't reviewed very many.

You're doing well, Gilion!

I had trouble finding a 'creepy crawly' for the "What's in a Name" Challenge, too, but finally read A recipe for Bees by Gail Anderson-Dergatz.

Congrats on finishing the Memorable Memoirs Challenge!

You're in a lot of challenges... how do you manage?

Debbie: The creepy crawly is hard to come up with. I am going for "ghost" but I think I am giving myself extra leeway.

Melissa: Thanks! I'll do a wrap up post.

Miguel: I don't! I bit off more than I can chew. I am rethinking my challenge obsession for nest year.
