2018 A-Z Reading Challenge: Mid-Year Update

Saturday, 23 June 2018


How is this challenge going? Pretty much as I had expected. The first fifteen or so books I read this year ticked off letter after letter in quick succession... then the rate slowed. And now, with six months and seven letters remaining, my progress in reading books starting with all letters of the alphabet has ground to a complete halt.
Will I complete the challenge by the end of the year? With only seven left you would initially assume so, but when you look closer at which letters they actually are (and which books I have on my bookshelf that corresponds to them), that outcome seems like less of a given. 
All that I know is that frankly, I have had a lot of fun with this challenge (anything that rankles my competitive side is a win with me) and I hope that, by the time December comes, I can say that I have been successful.
