Reading Challenge: August 2018

Posting early because I have to bring some job credentials up to date, which means studying for the rest of the month.

It’s ritual to read some writing books between drafts in hope of leveling up for the work to come. Nothing life-changing there, so moving on to the recreational reading.

Reading Challenge: July 2018

This got so wordy (fun medication side effect), I’m not going to let it go for the usual two months.

I finally finished 24 read-all-the-way-through books! Who’s ready for the victory parade?

Yeah, I don’t know what I was thinking. I should have celebrated with ice cream.

Reading Challenge: May/June 2018

I set my 2018 Goodreads Challenge for 24 books because 2 books a month seemed achievable even in a disaster situation. Since they count every type of “finished,” including “I’m not reading another page of this dreck,” I was done for the year in April, according to them!  🎉 🎇 ✨ 💪 💃 🐙 🎆 🎊 🌟 But if you’re going to do that, you might as well count samples I looked at and decided not to continue, so I’ve imposed my own criterion of all-the-way finished. Going by books I’ve actually read all the way through, I’m at 23, so the official victory parade will have to wait just a teeny bit longer.

Reading Challenge: March/April 2018

Posting a little early because the rest of my month looks like a postapocalyptic hellscape and I’m not in the mood to read more fiction, anyway (as will become apparent below). I set my 2018 Goodreads Challenge for 24 books because 2 books a month seemed achievable even in a disaster situation. Since they count every type of “finished,” including DNF CLEANSE IT WITH HOLY FIRE, I’m already done for the year, according to them!  🎉 🎇 ✨ 💪 💃 🐙 🎆 🎊 🌟 Going by books I’ve actually read all the way through, though, I’m at 16, so I’ll hold off on my victory parade a little while longer.
