Reading Challenges Update

A friend posted on Facebook yesterday that we have just entered the last quarter of the year. (It's a little depressing.)

Anyway I thought it would be a good idea to see where I stand with my Reading Challenges for 2013.

Nora Roberts Reading Challenge
I don't really set any goals with this one. I try to stay current on her new releases while putting  dent in her back list.  I've pretty much current (just need to read the novella and wait for the new series to start). I've read about 30 of her back list titles.  I read the MacGregors series. It also helps that they have been re-releasing her back list.  Of course it's two titles to a book so my overall book title count is lower (if I'm reading them in one book, it counts as one book).

The 2013 TBR Challenge
I started off strong with this one, and then hit a wall. I just couldn't get into the one book I picked up, and then everything just seemed to bump those books down the list. It looks like at least 4 of my picks (plus my 2 alternates) will be on my TBR list another year.

GoodReads 2013 Reading Challenge
For 2013 I set a goal to track 200 books.  As of this posting I'm at 130 tracked books, with 2 currently being read/listened to.  According to the tracker I'm currently 30 books behind where I should be. I don't think I'm going to make 200, I'll be happy if I hit 150; which is what I should have set as my goal for this year. I had a goal of 100 books last year and passed that, and I guess I thought I would have more free time to read this year.  I'm both happy and sad that I didn't have as much time as I assumed I'd have.

Check back in January to see how I finish the year!
