Pam Baddeley | 3021 comments Good challenges Desley - I'm too disorganised, I just pick a number and don't worry about categories!


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments I just love setting challenges

LOL!


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Wow, don't think I've ever added my first book so early!


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Still going well :-)


message 17: by Pam (new)

Pam Baddeley | 3021 comments Good!


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Slowing down a bit now, but another finished


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Finally updated, hadn't realised I'd got so far behind. Really good start to the year though.

That's excellent, Desley.


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Thanks


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Hmm, seems I forgot to update the last 3 books, so hopefully up to date now. 1 book ahead though, which is great, especially as I have 4 books on the go!!


message 23: by Pam (new)

Pam Baddeley | 3021 comments Absolutely, that's great Desley.


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Oh dear, seem to be really behind on updating again!!! Finished 4 this week, mix of new and favourite authors, and my first classic of the year, just need to read some non-fiction now.


message 25: by Pam (new)

Pam Baddeley | 3021 comments Going great guns Desley!


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Yep!


message 27: by Desley (Cat fosterer) (last edited Apr 22, 2018 11:12AM) (new)

Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Hmm, just come on to add the two books I finished this week and I was 3 out on my number, so must have forgotten to add last week's!! 2 books ahead, and 61% through one I am reading, so should finish that this week. Really need to start reading some doorstops, a few have been around 370 which isn't quite enough to count


message 28: by Pam (new)

Pam Baddeley | 3021 comments Doing well then! I've been avoiding the doorsteps mostly after failing to meet my target last year :-(


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments I probably should, but it is one of my targets and helps with the page number one.


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Another book finished, so still ahead. Still 3 on the go too


message 31: by Pam (new)

Pam Baddeley | 3021 comments Well done, you're doing great.


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments 20 finished now, still 3 ahead, and still 3 on the go, although struggling with one of them.


message 33: by Pam (new)

Pam Baddeley | 3021 comments Good going. I've now managed to get 3 ahead on mine too, though I'm only reading one at a time at the moment. I quite often have read 2 or 3 at once though.


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Glad you are finally ahead


message 35: by Pam (new)

Pam Baddeley | 3021 comments Me too ... it was telling me just now I was only 2 ahead and had read 39 when I'd just added 3 books (38 and 3 ahead a day or so ago!) but when I click to go to the challenge page, it shows 42 read and 5 ahead. GR glitch.


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments And another two finished - now need to spend some time concentrating on watching TV, taping more than I can watch!

I know the feeling!


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Hmm came on to update my challenge and found I was 5 books out, so have updated some of my categories, will need to sit down and work things out to get the rest. At least I'm ahead.


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Think I've updated everything, although not sure it has picked up the pages on two of the books - as they were only around 38 pages each, I won't worry too much, unless I am short at the end of the year, then I'll add them manually. Am ahead though, which is good, despite being behind on challenges for another group. Think next year I'm going to focus on all the ones I've paid money for.


message 40: by Pam (new)

Pam Baddeley | 3021 comments It's good you're ahead Desley. I'm managing to keep well up too.


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Yeah, and just about keeping on top with the TV too.


message 42: by Pam (new)

Pam Baddeley | 3021 comments No I can't keep up with that!


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Still ahead, colour challenge will go up a lot this month as it is red, white or blue and I appear to read a lot of books with red on the covers! My paid books however aren't going to get met, as I've just got another free KU trial.


message 44: by Pam (new)

Pam Baddeley | 3021 comments That's good Desley


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Another target hit - non fiction. Most of this year's haven't been my normal non fiction books though. Also realised the latest one hits my colour challenge too!


message 46: by Pam (new)

Pam Baddeley | 3021 comments Well done Desley!


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Thanks, will slow down for a bit while I try and catch up on TV - I only ever seem to be ahead on one or the other, really must be more selective - on both, looking at the piles of unread books at the side of me, much less what is on my kindle!


message 48: by Pam (new)

Pam Baddeley | 3021 comments Groan yes ... the Kindle is being neglected apart from constantly re-reading my own book through on it for the edit!


Desley (Cat fosterer) (booktigger) | 11369 comments Still doing well, finished 2 this week, although I hadn't added the one I finished last Sun as I was close to finishing my paperback. Still ahead, think I might struggle to hit a couple of challenges, paperbacks are taking a while as I am reading them out loud to the foster cats and I can't read as quickly doing that!


message 50: by Pam (new)

Pam Baddeley | 3021 comments Do the cats enjoy listening - that's interesting.
