Since I like reading other people's monthly update posts, I thought I'd do a quarterly update to see where I'm at on my challenges and talk about my plans for the next quarter.
Books read: 39 plus two long poems and five plays
Pages read: 12,569
TBR Double Dare: Complete! I managed to abstain from library books, so all of the book totals above (and below, for that matter) are books I own! Woohoo!
Shakespeare Reading Month: Also complete, since this happened in January. I read Venus and Adonis, The Rape of Lucrece and Contested Will
Clarissa Readalong: I'm up-to-date in my reading, although I'm also frustrated.
Magical March: Done! I read 8 books.
A Classics Challenge: 3/12 books I completed books and posts for January (EM Forster), February (The Old Curiousity Shop) and March (20,000 Leagues Under the Sea)
Greek Classics Challenge: 5/12 books: Rhesus, The Cyclops and Heracleidae, The Suppliants and Helen by Euripides
Chunkster: 0/8 - I've read several that would count, but I'm trying not to double dip and was trying to get a few specific chunky novels of my TBR shelves, so I'm not giving myself any points here yet.
Truth in Fiction: 0/7 pairs - Again, I read one of these books but didn't end up reading the pair and posting about them at the same time. Oops.
Back to the Classics: 0/9 books - I read the books I was going to count for my 20th century classic, but forgot to mention the challenge in the post so I'm going to try to read another one instead. I may end up counting it later! :)
I joined the Classics Club so I'll try to read a few books for that, and I'll participate in Allie's Victorian project in June and July. In April, I plan on hitting the library quite a bit since I've been deprived! But, I think I'm going to participate in Dewey's Read-a-Thon and focus on my own books for that to whip through some of the books that have been lingering on my shelves the longest.
Happy reading everyone!
