My Reading Life: Spring Reading Challenge Wrap Up

Well I’ve reached the end of my two week Spring break reading challenge. Did I stick to the rules?

I watched no TV. Tick on that one!
In terms of only reading review books, out of the ten books I read, one was not a review book. What?!!! I know, but I have a good excuse. It was for bookclub, and I’d left it until the last minute. Theoretically, it was a ‘set’ book, in that I was reading it to review with my bookclub, so let’s just leave that as a grey area. The other part of this was my aim to read some of the review books that have been sent to me directly from authors. I failed on this one, miserably. Not one of the ten books was one of these. I really think I need an extra week of holidays!

All in all, this was a nice little challenge to set, and the avoidance of tv really did make a dent in my review pile. Plus, I don’t feel like I wasted the holidays.

Tomorrow I go back to work and juggling a million things at once…nine weeks until the holidays. You bet I’m counting!

  1. Hahaha, I thought the TV ban was for the entire spring months. Two weeks ain’t so bad! So does that mean you’ll be watching TV again? Hee hee

  2. Well done. Re reading author copies, I read review copies strictly in the order I receive them… But I receive very few directly from authors though I think the odd one from publishers is at the behest of authors. I do prefer to deal with publishers. I’m currently running about 5 months behind!

    BTW I’d accept the reading group book as part of the challenge!

  3. Even when you don’t watch much TV, or only binge it now and then, it’s amazing what a difference it makes cutting it out entirely, eh? And I’d say your book club book “counts” – it was a “set” book, as you say. 😉 Well done, doll!
