2013 Challenge Wrap Ups

Even though I only signed up for 3 challenges in 2013, I still had a hard time keeping track of everything. Evidently I suck at keeping track of books I've read! I definitely need to stay on top this year and make things easier on myself.

2013 Goodreads Reading Challenge

This was an easy challenge. I was in really bad shape at one time earlier in the year because I was in a semi reading slump. But I managed to catch up without any extra effort and finish the year right on my goal of 75 books. So YAY me!

2014 isn't too far away and I am researching which challenges I want to participate in. I don't know if I should keep the same challenges or shake things up this year.

  1. Great job! I stopped doing challenges except the Goodreads one, but I do keep reading stats and I'm crunching the numbers right now!
    Happy New Year!

  2. The Goodreads challenge is SO easy to keep track of! Mark your book as read and BAM, you're done. I like that. Especially since I realize I suck at keeping track of challenges.
