The I suck at challenges challenge – update 4(April)

I came across this one over at book-a-rama and thought I would play along every month, maybe this is exactly what I need to make sure I complete the challenges I joined this year. This is the challenge wrap-up post for April.

How many books did I read for challenges?
I read a total of 6 books that counted towards challenges. Due to overlapping books for some challenges, I was able to mark off 9 challenge books.
(that made sense right?)

How is my progress so far?
I think I'm doing pretty good so far. The only challenges I haven't read a book for yet are two that I joined this month. This month I wanted to focus on review books, since I'm rather behind. So that's why I didn't do better with challenges. As luck would have it, I was able to use several of the review books towards challenges, but not all of them.

Total challenges that I'm competing in as of April 1st:
13 challenges (this doesn't count the completed challenges)

Completed Challenges in April
None - I'm close on a couple - so maybe next month I can list at least one here.

Total completed challenges in 2009:
20 Books in 2009 - Challenge Completed
