It's over... fall is over, and the reading challenge is over. I didn't get to read every book I had on my list. However, I did read some books that weren't on my original list. On my last post about this challenge I updated my list so I will use that to conclude the challenge.
This was my original list of books, by Dec. 20th, 2008 bold books have been read, red books have been reconsidered after not being able to get into them at all, books with no formatting are still in the queue, italicized books are in progress:
I would like to read the following books between September 22nd and December 20th:
When Organizing Isn't Enough SHED - Julie Morgenstern
The Sunday List of Dreams - Kris Radish
Wicked - Gregory Maguire
Twilight - Stephanie Meyer
New Moon - Stephanie Meyer
The Renaissance Soul - Margaret Lobenstine
Love In the Time of Cholera - Gabriel Garcia Marquez
The Measure of a Man - Sidney Poitier
Voces Sin Fronteras - Edited by Cristina Garcia
Becoming Latina in 10 Easy Steps - Lara Rios (it's a novel)
Out of Joint - Mary Felstiner
Beyond Chaos - Gregg Piburn
Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister - Gregory Maguire
I'm also waiting for delivery of books from PaperBackSwap:
The Friday Night Knitting Club - Kate Jacobs
The Dirty Girls Social Club - Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez
In addition to the 5 books I've already read that were on my original list, I also read:
The Knitting Way - Linda Skolnik & Janice Macdaniels
El Libro del Destino - Carlos Barrios
Time Management for School Leaders - Dr. Frank Buck
I completely finished 8 books, and have 5 books in progress.
I decided to pick up Wicked again after my husband and I went to watch Phantom of the Opera, he wants to watch the theater production of Wicked so I figured I wanted to read the book first. After a few pages I got into the story this time. I am more than 3/4 of the way finished with the book.
My husband and I are reading Beyond Chaos, Time Management for School Leaders, and El Libro del Destino together. We are reading these books by sections.
I am also reading the Knitting Way in sections. Since it is not necessarily a novel.
I enjoyed participating in the challenge as it motivated me to read more often. I love reading and have always used not having time as an excuse to let books sit on my shelf. I am very pleased with what I was able to accomplish in the amount of time we had for the challenge. I have joined the 52 books in 52 weeks group on Ravelry and am hoping that it will keep me on the ball with reading.
