Challenge Update, March

1 Apr

March is over so let’s check in on my year-long challenges!. You can check out my reading challenges any time on my challenge page.

When Are You Reading? Challenge

This is my own challenge to read a book from 13 different time periods. You can read about it here. My timeline is looking a little contemporary-heavy. Only one book I read this month filled in another time period, 1700-1799. Most of the ones I read were part of the Divergent trilogy and duplicated the ‘Future’ time period. I’ll admit a few were contemporary as well. Of the three I’m reading now, I think just one will potentially fill in a new time period but I know Life After Life jumps around with time a lot, so I’m not sure how I’ll count it. So far it seems 1910-1929 will be appropriate.

Where Are You Reading? Challenge

7/50 (+3)
Hosted by Sheila. In the challenge to read a book from every state, I’m making really slow progress as you can see on my map. I’ve only gone up one state and one foreign country since last month’s update. I really need some more variety! Of the ones I’m reading now, I should add Maine with Cabin Pressure and North Korea with The Orphan Master’s Son. No promise I’ll finish the later this month, but one can only hope.

Goodreads Challenge

Here I can finally shine! I finished six books this month and I’m now 7 ahead of pace. These other updates make me sound like such a slacker. I’m hoping to slog through a couple longer titles, but this goal is seeming a bit low now. Should I increase it to 50? Or to the 70 I did last year?

How are your challenges going? Maybe you’re being better about selecting books than I am and you’re on pace. I hope so! If you want any more information about the challenges I’m doing or you’d like to join me, leave a comment and check out the links. There’s also information in my Challenges tab.

Until next time, write on.
