The I Suck at Challenges Challenge - Update 2


I came across this one over at book-a-rama and thought I would play along.  I didn't do very well with challenges last year, so I think I qualify for this one. 

This post is a challenge wrap-up for the month of February.
How many books did I read for challenges? 
What challenges did I read for?
Did I finish any?
How is my progress so far?

Overall I'm satisfied with how I did.  I put all the books I'm reading for challenges in one area.  So when I go to pick up a book I browse those first and select one that catches my fancy.  I don't remember which book is for which challenge, I just know it's for at least one.  I think that's why some challenges I don't even have books read for yet, I'm not focusing on one challenge at a time, etc.

Total challenges that I'm competing in as of February 1st: 11

I plan to do a challenge update post later this month. I love the idea of the I Suck at Challenges Challenge. :-) It does look like you are making good progress, Kris. I know I am doing better with some than others. Like you, I have all of my challenge books set aside and am reading them in no particular order. Some challenges I haven't even started yet, but I will get to them. There's still time.
