September

Off to an excellent start with the Seasonal Reading Challenge at Goodreads. I manage 11 books and 175 points. I just need 210 more point to beat my personal best of 380.

And speaking of seasonal. . .I created a tracking page for the Seasonal Reading List here. I haven’t decided if I will update it weakly, monthly, or something in between.  I’m off to a great start with this, too: 8 of the 14 prompts, and 1 of the 4 Daughters of England books.

In September, I got back into doing read-a-thons, which helped me have a good reading month.  The wrap-up post for the Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon is here.  I also created a tracker for read-a-thons.

Also in September, I started using the Ultimate Book Blogger plug-in.  So far, I’m loving it!  It came in handy for the Spotlight On posts, too.  At this time, I have no plan to re-do older reviews.

I completed the Historical Fiction Challenge and I still haven’t done the wrap-up post for Romance Reading yet.  I’m close to finishing two more challenges — Quick Fix and Sequels.  There is a good chance I will complete them well before the end of October, so I’ll wrap up all four in one post.  And, as stated in the previous update, I removed the Off the Wall Challenge from my list below.

Looking Ahead — I scrapped my plans for a 2014 Reading Has Its Rewards Challenge.  I wasn’t satisfied with how it was coming together.  I still want to do one personal challenge (besides the Daughters of England) and I want it to be simple and one I might actually complete by the end of the year!
