February reading challenge updates

February updates When I look at these stats I come to several conclusions…lol. You can see the specific books read and reviewed (or not read) in each category if you check out my “Reading Challenges” Pages. I’m reading more mysteries than fantasies or science fiction so far this year.

I’ve read books in several categories, but just haven’t reviewed the books yet. That should change in March. Audiobook Challenge Audiobooks read and reviewed: 0 Challenge Goal: 20 -30 audiobooks I’m listening (or rather not listening) to an… Read more »
