Reading Challenge Update #1
Back in December, I issued a reading challenge, you can check it out here, there are only 17 challenges, and still plenty of time for you to join in. In addition to doing my own challenge, I’ve challenged myself to read 30 books this year over on goodreads. What do you think of reading challenges? Will you be joining in the Stain On The Page challenge? Are you already participating in a reading challenge? Let us know in the comments.
My stats for January through March…I managed to read a total of 8 books and started 2 others, making good progress on my number of books for goodreads. The question is, did any of them qualify for my challenge? The answer is yes 3 of them did! Whoo hoo! Go me, usually I start these reading challenges and then lose steam because I am not that interested in the topics picked and most times I’d rather read what I want. That’s why I made my own challenge, I am hopeful that at least a couple people join in on mine. But anyways on to the challenges that I did meet. (PS they are not in order..because where is the fun in that?)
Stain On The Page Reading Challenge Stats:
#9. Read the 3rd book from the left, on the 2nd shelf of your bookcase. Brotherhood in Death by JD Robb
#10. Read the 7th book on your To Be Read List/Pile. Stalking Jack The Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
#14. A Fairy tale either an original or a book based on a Fairy Tale. Beauty and The Beast: Lost in A Book by Jennifer Donnelly
On the original Stain On The Page Reading Challenge, there are only 17 challenges, I am giving out 3 bonus challenges to make it an even 20. If you decided to join in these 3 are optional, but are a bit more challengey then some of the others. I’m still deciding if I should add in 1 or more challenges each quarter, would that be cool or not so much?
18. A book that makes you think
19. A best seller from the year you were born
20. A book that takes place in Paris
Mini reviews of the books are done, in my monthly catch up posts as well as on Facebook and Instagram. Would you be interested in full reviews posted on the blog or stick to the mini reviews on social media and the catch up posts? Let me know in the comments.
I may be late to the game here and most likely am, I swear sometimes I feel like, I live under a rock. Anyway I just found out through this gal at work, that Amazon has a Kindle unlimited plan. Basically for $9.99 a month, you can read an unlimited amount of books at no additional cost. They are not yours to keep it’s just like checking books out from the library, except they are e-books and you can do it anytime anywhere. You don’t even need an actual Kindle, you can just download the free app to any of your mobile devices and read right from there. Bonus!
