Catka | 269 comments So. I thought I did not like challenges. All that time pressure and stress. And here I am, some time later, joining several challenges at the same time. That is love for books and reading for you.

Here are my 2018 challenges:
2018 Reading challenge shelf: read 55 100 books in 2018
Summer reading challenge thread: expert level, my shelf here
Popsugar 2018 Reading Challenge - list here - I will post my list here and update it as I go.
AZ Reading Challenge, my shelf here

Catka | 269 comments Also, I have surpassed the goal of 55 books for the 2018 Reading Challenge and since it is just a half a year, I moved the target to 100. Will see how it goes. So far I have finished 60 books, but I do not think I will keep the current pace when my Summer Reading Challenge is finished.
