Challenges completed: What an Animal, In Their Shoes
Challenges joined: Countdown Challenge, From the Stacks Challenge, Shelfari’s Readers of Romance Winter Challenge
Plans for December: Try to finish up as many 2008 challenges as possible and start signing up for 2009 challenges!
I still have a chance to finish the following challenges:
Chunkster Challenge – Finished. Need to review last book and do challenge wrap-up
A Well-Rounded Challenge – Finished. Need to review last book and do challenge wrap-up
In Their Shoes Challenge – Finished. Need to review last book and do challenge wrap-up
TBR Challenge – 1 more book to read, in progress
Fall Into Reading Challenge – 2 more books to read, both in progress
I probably will not finish these 2008 challenges, but I had fun trying:
888 Challenge – I’ve only finished 35 out of 56 books for this challenge, but I learned a valuable lesson. Next year, when I sign up for the 999 challenge (and I definitely am), I will not create a list of books ahead of time. Apparently, I’m more of a mood reader than I thought and I was never in the mood to read some of the books I listed for the 888.
What’s In a Name Challenge – I’m not ruling this one completely out, but I still have 2 books to read for it neither of which I’ve started yet.
