Well my first challenge was with Goodreads to read first 100, then 150 books. Nailed that one by reading 206 books! Likely to be 207 before the year is done. I think I can squeeze in one more before we hit Jan 1!




Then in March I participated in a TBR challenge in trying to demolish or dent my TBR mountain! Here's what I accomplished that month! I didn't set a goal for this one. Just aimed to read as many TBR books as possible!

2. Big Bad Wolf by Christine Warren (9/29/09)
3. Prince Charming Doesn't Live Here by Christine Warren (11/2/10)  
4. Tiger's Quest by Colleen Houck (6/7/11)  
5. Deadly Descendant by Jenna Black (4/24/12)  
6. Sins of the Demon by Diana Rowland (1/3/12)  
7. Touch of the Demon by Diana Rowland (12/31/12)  
8. Violet Eyes by Debbie Viguie (2/23/10)

Then for the 2013 TBR Reading Challenge I was going for the big leagues and and read 41-50 Married with Children. I knocked that one out of the park and read 89! My OCD side would love to make that a nice 90 but not sure if that's possible. Unless I change my next read...

My last challenge of the year was the Clean Out Your E-Reader Challenge. My e-reader definitely had quite a few Kindle deal books that I bought had yet to read. So I set out to read more than 10 e-books and I ended up reading 15! And I think I've added maybe 1 or 2 that haven't been read. I've added more than that but I read those puppies! There are a few left on there, some might be more novels than the traditional ebook. So not sure if I will be doing it again March next year.

  2. I can't believe you read 206 books! Holy crap, that's a lot! And you did great on your challenges. I only read 75 books this year. I posted my reading challenge wrap up post today also. I'm still looking for challenges to participate in 2014.

  3. AWESOME!! I totally screwed up my challenges when I started my new job. I haven't done my wrap up yet, but I didn't meet my goals. HOWEVER...there is always next year!!

  4. I hang my head in shame and bow down to you, lol. I only had 50 books marked for my Goodreads reading challenge and have only managed 31 so far. Might hit up a lot of novellas these next few days just to hit my 50.... would that be horrible?

    Anyways, I only had the one challenge this year because I knew I would be super busy with other stuff. Hopefully next year I can do a few more than what I did and read a lot more than what I did. I doubt I will get anywhere near 200 though, ;) Seriously, you're like a Book Goddess or something. Definitely not human.
