March Completed Challenge Linky Now Up!

...only eight days late.  Forgive me?  Here's hoping that all you challenge addicts have oodles of challenges to log and have been chomping at the bit wondering where your hostess has been.  [Reading books so she could get her first March completion!]  Happy Reading All! 

Let the March Reading Madness begin!

Your Challenge Hostess has been asleep at the wheel....

I just realized that there were no link-ups for finished challenges for 2014.  With a quick wave of the wand, you will see that there is a new tab for completed challenges this year.  So...who has a challenge or two done already?

Bout of Books: January Read-a-Thon!

It's been a while since I participated in a read-a-thon.  The next edition of Bout of Books is coming in January and I'm going to join. I'm hoping to use it to jump start my reading in the New Year. Haven't heard of Bout of Books? Looking for a read-a-thon to get your reading year off to a good start?  Looking for a way to gear up for all those Challenges you've been collecting for 2014? Check out the info from the Bout of Books gals...

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 6th and runs through Sunday, January 12th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team

High Summer Read-a-Thon--to help work on those challenges!

It's time to sign up for the High Summer Read-a-Thon sponsored by Michelle@Seasons of Reading! The Read-a-Thon will start on Monday, 7/22 at 12:00am CST and finish on Sunday, 7/28 at 11:59pm CST (adjust times according to your time zone).  And we can read what we like during the week. Michelle has decided it's not about quantity, but quality (although those who rock the quantity...we salute you!). 

If you're anything like me, you've signed up for way too many challenges and need some incentive to knock out some more books. Goodreads has me at seven books behind my I'll take all the incentive I can get.  Hope you'll join Michelle...and me as we get ready to read in July. (click on link above)

Mid-Year Check-up

Mmmm.  Yes, I know it's been awfully quiet here at the Reading Challenge Addict page.  I'm sorry about that....between university life and a health emergency for my Dad, it's been kind of hectic.

BUT....the Challenge Addict Doctor is here today to poke and prod you and see how those challenges are coming along this year.  Now, now, this won't hurt a bit.  Have you stuck to your reading regimen as prescribed?  How's that word intake?  A little on the lean side or maybe you been gorging yourself a bit?  Come now, tell the good doctor all about it.  And if you'll just place your books here on the scale, we'll do a little weigh-in....

As for your challenge host...I've signed up for 28 reading challenges this year (including the Reading Addict).  So far, I've completed 11 of those and I'm more than 50% done with nearly all the rest.  I look a bit sickly on the Around the World in 80 Books challenge, but the good doctor reminds me that I have until 2017 to complete this one.  So maybe I'm in better shape than I thought.  I'm also feeling a little weak on the Outdo/GoodReads Challenges (same goal for each)--but with a good dose of Reading Vitamins and some heavy book-lifting, I'm hoping to get back on track.  My full Challenge Update may be found at the link.
