STATUS: Goodread's Read 50 Books in a Year Challenge

Since half the year has gone and I am participating in "several" challenges, I feel that it is only right that I give you guys an update (no matter how pitiful it is)......

The first one I will discuss is the Goodreads.com "Read 50 Books in a Year" challenge.

I am currently at 9.
  1. The Lifetime Reading Plan by Clifton Fadiman
  2. 100 Most Influential Books Ever Written by Martin Seymour-Smith
  3. The Trump Card by Ivanka Trump
  4. The South Beach Diet by Arthur Agatston
  5. A Kind and Just Parent by William Ayers
  6. Shifting: The Double Lives of Black Women by Charisse Jones & Kumea Shorter-Gooden
  7. There are no Children Here by Alex Kotlowitz
  8. Uptown by Virginia DeBerry & Donna Grant
  9. Audition by Barbara Walters (I don't know if I should really count this one because I started reading it in November, but I finished it in January of this year.)

Hopefully by the end of the summer I can add at least 10 more books to the list!!!

WISH ME LUCK ON THIS CHALLENGE

I started this challenge before I knew I was accepted into law school and realistically I do not think I am going to reach my goal. So maybe for this year I will aim for 25 books. That's good huh?? If I go beyond 25, that would be awesome! I know that some people are laughing and saying 25 books are nothing, but I put into account my addiction to blogs (my google reader has over a 100 blogs) and magazines (over 10 subscriptions).

Next challenge update...... The Chunkster Reading Challenge
