This is the way the challenge ends
Not with 26 randomly chosen books read
But with…not that
So I failed at the Reading Challenge, everyone. Though I didn’t do all that badly, if I do say so myself. I certainly did better than I ever have before at a reading challenge. Out of 26 titles I managed 20. With a little cheating here and there. You can look under the “Reading Challenges” category archive, or go here, to see all the books I read for the challenge.
And the challenge was a great way to get me motivated to blog in a year where I found I had very few books that I couldn’t wait to tell you about. I also read a few titles that I normally wouldn’t have picked up, thanks to 26 Books to Read in 2015.
Last, if nothing else, I’ve learned my lesson. Way back in February of 2015 I admitted that I never learn. I was sure I would “[slink] away in defeat, belly to the ground and grumbling that I’ll never attempt a reading challenge again.” And what do you know, I was right!
Now that I’ve experienced the reality of blogging along while I try to fulfill a reading challenge, maybe I can finally admit that I can read broadly enough on my own. The whole reading/book blog challenge thing just isn’t for me.
