Update on My Reading Challenges for 2017
In January I wrote about the two Reading Challenges I was going to work on in 2017. Both to help me read books off my shelf and to challenge me in my reading a bit. One is hosted by our local library and the other is hosted by MODERN MRS. DARCY.
I thought I'd give an update on which books I have read to fit the challenges so far.
Van Horne Library Reading Challenge
Read a book....
1. With a color in the title
2. That has a war as a setting - THE ORPHAN'S TALE
3. A biography or autobiography - A MOTHER'S RECKONING
4. That is a classic or National Book Award winner -
5. That was written by an Iowan
6. You haven't read since you were in school - ANNE OF GREEN GABLES
7. Set somewhere you'd like to visit
8. Under 150 pages - SHACKLES FROM THE DEEP
9.That was made into a movie

4. a book you've already read - ANNE OF GREEN GABLES
5. a juicy memoir -

10. a book recommended by someone with great taste
11. a book you were excited to buy or borrow but haven't read yet
12. a book about a topic or subject you already love - I WILL ALWAYS WRITE BACK (letter writing)
So, I've got 10 categories knocked off the list of 24. Not too bad. I'm hoping to cross off a lot more this summer! Are you doing any reading challenges this year? How is your challenge going?
