One Down, Two to Go

Yippee! I finished the War Through the Generations Challenge! Now I only have two more challenges to do - the Classical Challenge and the One Hundred Plus Books to Read Challenge. I really should have finished the Classical Challenge first since the deadline is in October, but the WWII books were just so much interesting. I actually started on A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, but it's kind of dragging. I doubt that I will ever finish the One Hundred Books to Read Challenge because of my work schedule, but it doesn't really matter since I still have fun reading books. I started late in the challenge but it would have been a different story if I didn't. I would hate to come to a point where I would be miserable trying to complete an X amount of books in an X amount of time. Reading wouldn't be as fun anymore, and I read for fun and for relaxation...not to add more stress in my life.


  1. I totally understand about not worry about (or trying to not) worry about the deadlines. I joined the 100+ challenge late so I figured I would just do the best I can and see what happens. Congrats on completing your other challenges. I am also a sucker for a WWII story

  2. congrats on finishing the challenge and good luck with the other two!

  3. @Jess: Thanks, Jess. Did you join any challenges too? Great blog you have, by the way.

    @Momma Hunt: Another WWII story reader I see. What's so awesome about having blogs is that I get to meet people who like to read the same things I do. Hard to meet that in the real world because they look at me like I'm crazy. LOL. I read posts from Book Blogs where some (not all) just get into a tizzy if they don't catch up in their reading lists or their reviews or their posts, which I don't understand since I thought we were all suppose to blog and read for fun.

  4. Congrats on completing the challenge! Good luck with the rest of your challenges.
