Challenge Update #1 -- Reading Wrap-Up

I haven't done a Reading Wrap-Up since I wrapped up December's reads. I thought I'd combine a wrap-up for January, February and the first half of March with an update on where I stand with my Reading Challenges.

In January I finished:
  • Emily Post by Laura Claridge
  • The Smart One by Ellen Meister
  • Pretties by Scott Westerfeld
  • Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
In February I finished:
  • A Day with My Dad at the Beach by Lance Waite
  • King's Fool by Margaret Campbell Barnes
In March I have finished (so far):
  • Baron Thinks Dog are People Too! by Laurie Dean
  • Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
Now for Challenge Updates!

  1. I have some challenges that are at 0 too! I haven't gotten to my Scot Westerfeld mini-challenge yet; I see you finished! I've decided not to stress out about challenges. They are supposed to be fun, not a chore. If I finish them, great; if not, so be it.

    Good luck on yours!

  2. Exactly. I'm not going to stress about it either. I'm having fun in my reading so far this year. Well, with the exception of the Emily Post bio. =)
