Yeah, I know these posts must be excruciatingly boring for anyone else to read, but I find they're a good way to keep me from slipping behind in tracking my progress. The good news is that I made a loose schedule for myself for posting, and as "projects progress" is set for Fridays, you'll know what day to skip reading.
*The Unofficial-for-Me Reading Challenges:
I finished my first book of the year--The Wave by Todd Strasser (school reading). It fills in holes for...
the Mount TBR Reading Challenge (1/60),
the Genre Variety Reading Challenge--I'm counting it as "based on real events" genre, which probably isn't a "real" genre but I wasn't really sure how else to categorize it (1/18),
the Quick Fix Reading Challenge--as it comes in at only 138 pages (1/20+),
and the 2013 YA Reading Challenge (1/20)
I've also been reading Nick Hornby's More Baths Less Talking, which I started on New Year's Eve. Being as it's a collection of his essays from the Believer, any I've read since the New Year began count for...
the 2013 Essay Challenge
--"Stuff I've Been Reading-November/December 2010" by Nick Hornby
--"Stuff I've Been Reading-January 2011" by Nick Hornby
--"Stuff I've Been Reading-February 2011" by Nick Hornby
--"Stuff I've Been Reading-March/April 2011" by Nick Hornby
#37. Read 50 books I never heard of before buying/borrowing from library. (5/50)
The Wave also counts for this. I picked it up one time off one of those tables B&N has set up for the local school's assigned reading. I'd never heard of it before, but I thought it sounding intriguing and that Gray and I might enjoy it.
Sadly, that is all my progress from these first few days of the new year. I did, however, notice that I've got at least 6 or 7 items going from my happiness project, so hopefully I'll complete at least a few of them before too terribly long. I also noticed that I really need to get in there and revamp my home projects list and my crafty-ish projects lists.
