To Be Read Challenge completed


I thought this would be the easiest challenge for me to complete, but that turned out not to be true. How hard could it be? Choose 12 books you plan to read and then read them. However, I made the list when I first started blogging and had no idea how many books I would learn about and want to read. I kept forgetting about my TBR Challenge list! I also got books as gifts, from publishers, won some on other blos' give aways. The pile of wonderful books just kept getting bigger and bigger.

But, I did complete this challenge and it feels good. Here's my list.

To Be Read Challenge (January through December 2010)
  1. Generation Dead (Waters)
  2. Invisible Lives (Banerjee)
  3. Hunger Games (Collins)
  4. Gringolandia (Miller-Lachman)
  5. Catching Fire (Collins)
  6. Hate List (Brown)
  7. Dairy Queen (Murdock)

Aths--Thanks! I think I was so worried about not completing challenges that I panicked and read tons of books from January to June that fit for multiple challenges and I found I'd finished most of them. But, it did take careful plotting and planning!
