So, you may remember, I joined an unholy heap of challenges for 2012. In case you’re interested, here’s an update:
I’ve totally failed to stick to the TBR Double Dare, particularly given that my initial ambition was to read only copies I owned on or before 31.12.2010 (i.e. they’ve been in the TBR for more than a year). But I haven’t bought any new ones, which has to count for something.
Kim’s Australian Literature Month looked excellent, but I stymied myself by trying to read David Malouf’s Remembering Babylon for it and so instead of 3 books in the month, I managed 1 DNF. Since then I’ve read Tomorrow When the War Began and Down Under, which isn’t Australian fiction, but it’s non-fiction about Australia so I say it counts towards Booklover’s Australian Authors Challenge. Or something.
I joined in with the Great Gatsby readalong and very much enjoyed it, and I’m sort of reading I Capture the Castle with Iris. In that I’ve read it and I’m waiting for her to catch up so that we can write something jointly-ish.
I’ve contributed one to the ebook challenge and the audiobook challenge, and haven’t made much progress otherwise.
However, it’s the usually excellent review copies that are keeping me off track and I don’t really mind all that much.
