Site Event: Challenges Update

In the beginning of this year I began three reading challenges. Goodreads reading challenge and reading 32 books each of both title and last name of the author for each letter of the alphabet. 

My Goodreads count can be found on my Goodreads profile. My Alphabet challenges can found on my ‘Challenges‘ tab at the top of my blog. 


As it currently stands for Goodreads, I thought 60 would be a good number to hit for the year. I attempted 80 last year and wasn’t successful, but as it turns out I surpassed my current goal in July! (although to be honest there are a couple of knitting books and Goosebumps, which shouldn’t count) Therefore I have chosen to increase my books for the year. I’ve doubled them to 120! I still thinks it’s achievable, but we’ll see how I get on.

As for my alphabet challenges, I have come to realize that I now need to be paying attention! Last month NONE of my six books counted, which is a problem! I’m at 13 out of 32 for both A-Z challenges! That’s not even half way! I want to participate because I know it’ll help me branch out for genres and authors. I’ve already got some acceptable books in the works so I’m hoping to make more progress in the next months to stay on track!

What about you? Are you currently doing a reading challenge? Is anyone else progressing nicely for Goodreads? Let me know!
