Reading challenges

Some thoughts

  • I’ve read fewer non-fiction items this quarter, but my overall reading is up.
  • Had my first major DNF of the year with Moll Flanders. I hated giving up, but whew, what a stinker!
  • I’m enjoying Book Blogger Confessions, despite my infrequent participation.

Looking ahead

I’ve got to catch up on a review backlog, and then it’s time to jump back into my reading challenges. I’ve only completed one challenge since I started blogging, and this year I’m determined to complete two.

How’s your reading going this year?
