April is upon us, and theoretically, I should be at 25% completion for my three blog challenges. So where do I stand with my 2014 Reading Resolutions?
The Book to Movie Challenge
In Doing Dewey’s 2014 Book to Movie Challenge, I signed up for the Movie Lover category of reading nine books and watching their film or TV adaptations. So far I have read and reviewed only Argo. I have read Orange is the New Black and Divergent, and plan on watching the adaptations soon.
1/9 = 11%
The Eclectic Reader Challenge
In Book’d Out’s 2014 Eclectic Reader Challenge, I signed up to read 12 books from a variety of categories that will encourage me to expand my tastes. So far I have read Blues for Zoey, which qualified in the Published in 2014 category.
1/12 = 8%
The TBR Challenge
In Roof Beam Reader’s 2014 TBR Pile Challenge, I signed up to read 12 books that have been languishing on my shelf for at least one year. So far I have read only Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, but it was by far the most academic text on my list, so I feel good about tackling that one early on!
1/12 = 8%
Good Reads 2014 Reading Challenge
And here the reason for my lagging on all other challenges becomes evident; I set my 2014 read-o-meter to 125 books, aiming for a modest increase from 122 in 2013. So far I have read 36 books, many of which did not qualify for any of my challenge categories! I am coming close to being caught up on my library holds queue, and hopefully I can buckle down to my other challenges in Q2.
36/125 = 28%
39/158 = 25%
The overall tally gives the somewhat deceptive appearance that I am right on schedule. How are your reading challenges going?
