Reading Challenges–How’d I do in 2014?


The 2014 challenges, goals and results:

1. Goodreads (read 100 books). Completed! Read 102 books.

2. New Authors (25 new-to-me authors). Completed! Read 34 new authors.

3. TBR (read a TBR book each month and review it on the third Wednesday) Completed except for January–I signed up for this challenge about the time the first review was supposed to be posted.

4. TBR Pile (read 21 to 30 tbr pile books) Completed! Read 28 TBR books.

5. A Year of Rereading (reread 10+ books) Incomplete. Only 4 rereads. I just don’t reread many books.

6. Audiobooks (listen to 5-10 audiobooks) Completed! Listened to 16 audiobooks.

7. Book Bingo (fill in a bingo card by reading a book for each category and space). Incomplete–filled in every blank except the nonfiction blank.

Did you take part in any reading challenges? How’d you do?

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. Wow, you did really well on your challenges! I’m always impressed by how much other people seem to be able to read. The only challenge I participated in this year was the Goodreads challenge, which I’ve been doing for the past four years. I read 97 books and my goal was 75, so I completed it. Yay! That TBR challenge sounds like something I should try – my unread backlist books are getting really out of control.


    1. You did great with the Goodreads challenge, Danya. When I sign up for challenges I sign up for ones I have a chance of accomplishing! And most of them you can use the same books for different challenges. Keeping track of everything and trying to accomplish them is what’s fun for me!


  2. I’m always impressed with bloggers who take on a lot of challenges. I can’t unless I know I have some books I need to read that will go towards them, I have a bad tendency to take goals too seriously and I end up stressing out myself 😛


    1. I know what you mean! And I do choose challenges I know I have a chance of completing. As long as I manage to read a few books in the challenge I’m okay with it.
