Challenge Roundup – update 8 (August)

This challenge is being hosted by book-a-rama.

Overall Progress?

I didn't do as well as I had hoped for. However, it's not because I read a bunch of other books, I just didn't get a lot read this month. Next month, I hope to finish some of these challenges. I am glad that I finished at least one challenge though. I basically have to finish 2 challenges a month for the rest of the year in order to complete all challenges I'm participating in, that end by the end of 2009. Oh boy…I have my work cut out for me.

You're really making progress. I had to drop a couple of challenges -- reality set in -- only four months left to the year!
