Hello all. I didn’t think I would be participating this year, as I have been traveling, but when I saw the post on Caffeinated Reviewer today, I couldn’t resist.
Here it is already the beginning of Octoberand I need to do an update on my progress for my challenges. I am full of good intentions, but I would always rather read then keep track of challenges. I am doing quite well and am on track or finished all but a couple of them.Continue reading “Quarterly Challenge Update: September 2022”
I love reading Christmas stories, so this challenge is right up my alley. The challenge begins Saturday October 1, 2020 and runs until December 31, 2020. Jo, over at Tea & Cake for the Soul has hosted this challenge since 2019 and I have participated each year. Head over to her blog to learn how to join in and the rules (which are pretty basic). Just choose 20, or 15 or 10 books that you’d like to read (and hopefully review). They do not have to be Christmas themed, but mine will be.
It’s that time again, 20 Books of Summer, or is it 10 or 15? I love this challenge hosted by Cathy at 746 Books. The challenge ran from June 1st to August 31st and I made it with a few days to spare. This year I set a goal of 20 books with “Summer” in the title. The majority of them being backlist books (2021 or prior). I had 32 possibilities to choose from and I was successful in reading 20 from the list, 15 being backlist books.Continue reading “20 Books of Summer 2022 Wrap Up Post #20booksofsummer22”
Here it is already August and I need to do an update on my progress for my challenges. Most of these will be as of the end of June, some the end of July. I am full of good intentions, but I would always rather read then keep track of challenges.Continue reading “Mid Year Update – July 2022”
I am 18 days into Christmas in July and have posted 6 reviews out of the ten I want to read. I have actually read one more, but my review isn’t posted yet.Continue reading “#ChristmasInJuly2022 – Reviews 5 & 6: Snowflakes and Cinnamon Swirls at the Winter Wonderland by Heidi Swain, Bells are Ringing by Lacey Baker #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge #BeatTheBacklist2022”
The Audiobook Challenge is back for 2022! I’ll be joining Caffeinated Reviewer and That’s What I’m Talking About the co-hosts for the 10th year of this challenge. I didn’t participated in 2021, but will be back at it in 2022. I’m going for The 100 Club since I listened to more than that in 2021 and audiobooks seem to be my preferred way to enjoy a book these days.Continue reading “2022 Audiobook Challenge @kimbacaffeinate @twimom227 #2022AudiobookChallenge”
It’s that time again everyone. My annual Christmas in July Readathon. My goal is to read ten Christmas or Wintry stories during July. I am going to try to read all backlist books rather than the new ones for 2022. Here is my tentative list, but I may change the list as time goes on, and if I have time, I might read more than ten.Continue reading “Christmas In July #Challenge”
Well, the readathon has ended and I managed 18 hours. I feel good about that. I had a few interruptions, a visit from a friend, several phone calls, and messages throughout the day, but basically I got a lot of reading and listening done. I finished two books, reread 4 picture books I had read with my grandson so I could write reviews, and started two new books.Continue reading “Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon!
