2017 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge wrap-up

2017 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge

The Alphabet Soup Challenge is hosted by Escape with Dollycas Into A Good Book and means that by December 31, 2017 your bowls must be full of one book for each letter of the Alphabet.
Each Letter Counts As 1 Spoonful

I did not pick my list ahead of time but just let it fill up naturally throughout the year. I only had to plan for a couple of letters at the end, and this was a very fun challenge! Read the rest of this entry »

2017 Color Coded Reading Challenge wrap-up

clipboard012017 Color Coded Reading Challenge

This was my fifth year for this challenge and thanks to Bev at My Reader’s Block for hosting. In an effort to read my own books as much as possible, I made a list at sign-up to keep me on task. That list is included in parentheses and the actual book read is included in bold. Result: 3 out 9 as planned, although 4 of the other 6 were my books, so I still mostly read my own books!

Rules: Read nine books in the following categories during 2017. Read the rest of this entry »

Where are You Reading? 2017 wrap-up

The Where are You Reading? Reading Challenge 2017 is hosted by Book Dragon’s Lair and I joined up in late January, even though I said I was done with new challenges. The goal was to read a book that takes place in each letter of the alphabet, with real or fictional locations allowed.

Here’s my book list, and a varied list of places I managed to go! I read them all as a part of my regular reading except Q which I had to get from Interlibrary Loan, as I couldn’t find any Q places on my shelves. Read the rest of this entry »

What’s In a Name 2017 wrap-up post

What’s In a Name 2017

The tenth annual What’s In A Name challenge was once again hosted by The Worm Hole. I began the fun in 2009 so I joined again this year. I identified books from my TBR stacks at the beginning of the year to fulfill this challenge and in the end, I only went with two of my original ideas. Of the other four, only one was on TBR shelf, so half isn’t bad, I guess. One of the new books was read for book club.

The rules are simple-Read one book from each category during the year. Read the rest of this entry »
