There’s still a couple of days before the From the Stacks Challenge is officially over but I’ve thrown in the towel. I read four out of my five books and even though I really want to read that other book it just not going to happen between now and Wednesday.
I’m happy that I read a few books that have been languishing on my shelves for too long but I’m challenged out. It’s taken me a month to finish one classic (I’m at the last 30 pages) and so I don’t see myself completing the Classics Challenge either. Let’s not even mention the Chunkster Challenge.
The challenges are a lot of fun and more than anything it’s been great connecting with fellow bookworms. I’ll probably keep joining them as they show up but you know, I am feeling a bit rebellious now. As I belong to several book groups by adding these challenges my reading has started to feel more like a school assignment and I want more of my freedom to read at whim.
I’ll keep the buttons for now but I’m not sure how much of an effort I’ll make with the remaining challenges. Having said that my friends I’m going to forget about book group books and reading challenges tonight and finally start New Moon. I’ve had it for a week and I’m tired of putting it off to complete/read other books. Bring on the Vampires.
