Challenges in 2008 - how I did

I can sum up almost each challenge with two words - "not good"

Yet...I keep signing up for more challenges in 2009...I must be insane.

Ok...here's just an update on each challenge and how well I did.

TBR Challenge - completed!
My goal was to actually read each book on my main list and my alternate list.  That didn't happen.  The good thing is that I did actually read 12 books total, so I did complete the challenge. 

1st in a series challenge - not so good
The goal was to read 12 books, I only read 6 that were on my list.  I do think I read more that were the 1st in a series, but they weren't on my list and I don't remember which ones.  So I'm marking this one as failed.  I'm trying it again for 2009 though. Let's hope I do better!

Chunkster Challenge - completed!
While I didn't exactly read all books on my list, I did read enough to complete the challenge. I ended up reading 6 that I actually documented. 

Young Adult Challenge - not so good
The goal was to read 12 young adult books.  I actually only read 6 that were on my list.  I am doing this challenge again in 2009 and I hope to actually read all 12 on my list.

You completed 50%, which is better than I did.

The way I figure it, if you read in 2008, you did good whether you finished all your challenges or not. :-)

Happy New Year!

I am so sucking. I quite one challenge and I'm failing the other. You did great, though, in my humble opinion!

LOL I shouldn't laugh, but I admit that I felt the same way about my progress last year. :-) I signed up for more challenges that I took on last year--fool that I am.

Congratulations on those you did complete, and don't beat yourself up about the others. You made a good attempt and that counts too! As long as you had fun trying, that's all that matters.

We'll help each other through our challenges this year!

Well, at least you liked the challenges well enough to try them again! The challenges are just meant as an incentive to read - you read. So, it's all good. :)
