Challenges Completed! Others Not so Much!

I joined this challenge a bit late last year, but it ran from May 2009 through May 2010 (click on the image for more information).  I completed the deep end of the challenge, which required me to read and review 11-15 books of contemporary poetry and poetics.

See the books I reviewed here.

I joined the 2010 Ireland Reading Challenge (click on the image for more information) at the Shamrock Level for 2 books.

Check out my book reviews here.

I’ve completed this challenge by reading 3 books.  Check them out here.

Ok, that’s it for the completed challenges.  For the other challenges and my progress, here you go:

I’ve read 34 out of 50 books for this challenge.  Check them out here.

I’ve read 3 out of 10 books for this challenge.  Check them out here.

I’ve read 5 out of 11 books for this challenge.  Check them out here.

I’ve read 9 out of 12 books for this challenge.  Check them out here.

I haven’t even started this challenge.  It ends June 30 and you have to read, listen or watch between 3 and 6 items.

I’ve read 4 out of 5 spinoffs/rewrites and 0 out of 6 Jane Austen originals.  Check them out here.

I’ve met the requirement to read 2 books of poetry, but I’m not sure I’ve finished a badge yet.  I’ve read 5 contemporary poetry books, which I think qualifies for a badge.  Check them out here.

I’ve read 2 out of 6 vampire books from any series.  Check them out here.

I have not started this challenge either.  I think this one is perpetual, so I may be good on this front.


  1. I think you’re doing a great job on those challenges. I need to get a move on with the Bronte challenge!

  2. Congrats on completing the Ireland Challenge!

  3. Wow! You’ve made great progress, and inspired me to get my act together and do a progress post of my own. I know I’m not nearly as far along, but it helps to see some results. Look forward to seeing how many more you complete.

  4. I just recapped my challenge progress as well, and it was such a satisfying activity. Almost better than actually completing a challenge. 🙂 Looks like you are addicted to challenges too!

  5. Doesn’t it feel GOOD to recap your progress? You are rocking girl. I just did my mid-year update, which will be posted in a couple of weeks. I will admit I had one challenge that I just decided to drop. Sometimes you have to move on!

    • I think the Brontes challenge was just too short of a time period for me and I should have dropped it…though I really intended to re-read wuthering heights with everyone.

  6. You’re doing great on your challenges! The Reagan Arthur Challenge is perpetual, so there are no worries on it.
