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.

  7. For the number of challenges you’ve joined, I think you’re making great progress. Congrats on completing a few!
