message 8: by Veronica (new)

Veronica (v_a_b) 38 books. Yikes! only 2 1/2 books in ten days! I need to read faster. I have started spending an entire week on one book. I'm getting slow! I think the problem is not doing my homework until the time when I would usually read though... I really really need to start doing it right after school...

Veronica (v_a_b) okay, I gave up on numbering them, and I might later.

message 22: by Veronica (new)

Veronica (v_a_b) 60 books. I don't feel like posting them all now though

message 23: by Veronica (new)

Veronica (v_a_b) 69 books

My challenge is no longer 200 books, but 105, where it was set before. I haven't had much time to read this summer, and I will be going to an advanced school that starts in the middle of August and gives out a lot of homework. November will be devoid of reading due to both school and Nanowrimo. Basically, 200 books is too much this year after all. Maybe next year...

message 24: by Veronica (new)

Veronica (v_a_b) 73 books

message 25: by Veronica (new)

Veronica (v_a_b) Okay... Nanowrimo got in the way, so now there is no way to reach 105 books. I guess I will have to change it to 77. Just because i like that number.

Roni -

I'm way behind on my book challenge for this month coz I too decided to join Nanowrimo. Ah well, we're having fun either reading or writing! :)
