Reading Challenges Update 01/08
My books and movies lists for 2007 are up on the blog that I keep for the purpose of holding my annuals lists:Â 52Â books (with audiobooks; 45 actually read) and watched 71 movies. I am averaging ten less than last year. Sigh. Maybe the reading challenges can up my book intake, or maybe they’ll make me go literary mad. What have I gotten myself into?
- Book Awards (6 of 12) – Progress is going well, and there is lots of time for me to complete this before July 1
- Seafaring Reading (0 of 2) – I have the second book in the series, not the first yet. May be cutting close.
