Because Reading Challenge Update ~ January 2015

Posted February 2, 2015 by Michelle in Uncategorized / 3 Comments

BR Challenge UpdateYou can see all my updates throughout the month HERE but once a month I will be posting an update for the challenges I have done during that month. All challenges that I co-host will have separate updates at the end of each month.


So this year I realized I might have gone a little challenge crazy but I am reading anyway so why not make it a challenge to keep me motivated. I was trying to think of how to do this post and most of it can be found in the tab under my header but I thought most people don’t just come to my blog to check out my pages so each month I will be placing the content in a post with addition info on monthly challenges. I am loving all the challenges I have joined this year and just added two more this week. I think at the moment I can say I am done adding challenges but don’t hold me to that because you never know, as I was writing this post I just had an idea and usually that means I will be making a logo and co-hosting a challenge if it’s not already done 🙂

  1. At first I felt the same way about all the challenges I signed up. But it’s like you say, we are reading anyway so why not making it more challenging. I love the 2015HW because I would never get to the books I always wanted to – so thank you for organizing this!! I also hate the Goodreads reading challenge, it’s still early to put us in panic mode with that “book behind” message lol. Great job!

  2. I really don’t think you went too overboard. I’m working on my challenge update post and in a few days you will see just how challenge happy I get. I often end up completing most of my challenges by the end of the year although it seems crazy at this time of the year. I’m determined to finish Monthly Keyword this year. I read two books for the challenge in January and I’m working on the third.
