At the beginning of 2012, I set a resolution to write a letter every day of the year. I have written many letters and sent many a postcard to many corners of the world, but I cannot truthfully claim that every dawn saw me put pen to paper to envelope to stamp. Alas, I am not to be deterred; my letters per day ratio should end up showing I was successful. Yes, let’s go with that.
My recap to date:
month – letters sent — cumulative
February 86 135
March 46 181
April 61 242
May 46 288
June 39 327
July 31 358
Letters per day 358/213 = 1.68 letters per day.
Now as to challenges and my yearly book count tally, I’m doing OK. I am on track for 55 books, having read 35. Or 36, goodreads and I never ever seem to match and I’ll end up sorting it out at the end of the year.
I have been very successful at ReadALong particiption. Twitter is most fun, in that regard.
And since I didn’t join too many challenges, most of mine being of the personal variety, I’m doing OK. I finished the What’s in A Name 5 and halfway through the must-read-author list that I had setup for myself, but reading the books loaned to me? not so good. In fact, I’m giving up on a few and returning them to their proper owners.
How are YOU doing with challenges? To me, August is one of those months that has me holding me breath, hoping to stall time. Because once September hits, the year just takes on speed. Good luck to you on YOUR challenges!
