The battle of Midway (halfway through a reading challenge)

Thursday, July 2, 2020

Oh the joys of a reading challenge! Let's be honest - who of us, roaming the blogosphere, do not have a yearly reading challenge? Or one or two. Or three or four. If you have a Goodreads account (again, who of us don't), you basically automatically have an annual reading challenge. Just about every blogger on this lovely planet display their Goodreads challenge somewhere on the blog. It looks lovely! And of course, it means you are serious about this reading business. (I haven't posted mine on the new blog yet.... But I am still very serious about the reading business)

I haven't actually done a reading challenge, except for the Goodreads one, in about three years. So when I decided to get serious about this serious business of reading, this year again, I've decided to do the age-old, ever trust worthy - Alphabet challenge. The one with the 27 letters in. A challenge has to be challenging. 27 Books are also not going to cut it for me, so I've decided to do 27 titles and 27 authors.

Seeing that today, 02 July 2020, is the midway mark of 2020 (just hang on guys, we are half-way through!), I've decided to update my reading challenge and see how far I've come. According to the infamous Goodreads challenge, I am 61% done with 33 books down the line. But do they all count towards the Alphabet challenge? Alas... Here's my Alphabet challenge, midway through the battle:
F
    -
G -
    -
    -
J

    - 
O -
    -
Q -
    -
S -
    -

T -
    - 
    -
    -
X -
    -
Y
    -
Z -
    -
&

Not too bad for halfway through the year! I think. But I am stuck with a few letters here. Any suggestions of what might fit the puzzle?

How's your reading challenge going for the year? 

Lots of love,

Mareli

  1. Interesting challenge! Although I do think that books and authors with the X and Q will be hard to find

    1. Hi Anouk! I actually have one for Q. But not an author yet...

We love hearing from you and if you talk to me, I'll purr back as soon as possible. Sometimes I take a cat nap and it might take a couple of hours or days, but never fear - the cat always comes back.
