The year is half-way over (wow - I just can't believe that!) and I call tell that I'm doing great with some challenges, but others not so much. I thought the chick lit and historical challenges would be somewhat tough but at the same time not too hard since I love both genre's, but wow - I really need to work on those.  I also thought I picked good choices for the TBR challenge this year, but I'm not doing nearly as well as I would have liked.  Sure, I have half of it done (I really only have to read 12) but I was hoping this is the year that I read both my regular and alternate list and really got more of the books read that I've head for awhile.  I'm not giving up yet though..I do have till the end of December for most of these challenges.

Good job! I need to post mine. I just have two challenges, the Cozy Mystery one and The Everything Austen II. It's crazy enough. :)

well - you also have kids to keep you busy, I'm sure once I have a kid I won't be joining many (if any!) challenges.
