2012 Reading Challenges Update #3

29 Sep

I thought it would be a good idea to do a periodic checkup on my reading challenges.  A way of reminding myself of my successes and failures.  So here goes…

Total Challenges:    8/27   29.6%

Total Spots:    470/742  63.3%

Individual Challenge Progress:

  • Goodreads   135/175  77.1%
  • Fall into Reading  1/50  2%
  • Semi-Charmed Summer    9/14  60% — Failed**
  • Zombies    17/24  69%
  • Young Adult    12/12 100%*
  • Fantasy    8/10 80%
  • Vampires   10/10 100%*
  • Romance    10/10 100%*
  • Telling Tales (fairy tales)   5/10 50%**
  • Historical Fiction   4/10 40%**
  • Graphic Novels   20/20 100%*
  • Shakespeare    8/12 66.7%

  • Read Your Name   23/23 100%
  • A to Z   23/26 88.5%
  • What’s in a Name? 5   4/6 66.7%
  • Library    37/37 100%
  • Mount TBR    59/150 39.3%**
  • Dewey Decimal System   16/38 42.1%
  • Book2Movie   17/20 85%
  • MyYears 20/30 66.7%
  • Color Coded 1/9 11.1%**

*Successes: I’ve knocked off some more challenges.  Yipee!!! Plus a few others are very very close to being completed.  In fact, I plan on completing the zombie challenge during October’s FrightFall Readathon (and possibly Dewey 24 Hour Readathon).  I’ve also got an end of year plan to complete most of the challenges.  I don’t think I’ll get them all, but I want at least a 75% on total challenges.

**Failures (Needs Improvement): Scifi, Telling Tales (fairy tales), historical fiction, and Outlander.  For whatever reason, these just fell by the wayside.  I want to focus on these, but fear that at least two won’t be completed (definitely Outlander, maybe telling tales).  I know the color coded challenge will not be finished and my Mount TBR challenge will not reach 150 by year’s end (that would be almost 100 more books in three months.  Even I’m not that voracious of a reader).
