I love signing up for book challenges. If reading wasn't involved I would call it an unhealthy addiction. My excuse is it encourages me to read outside my regular scope of books. But I must confess that I have an unbroken streak of five failed challenges. My intentions are good but I just seem to run out of time and then the challenge is over.
And that isn't even the worst part. I'm still signing up for them!
Over at Breadcrumb Reads I'm working on 'Reading Shakespeare: a play a month'. I'm doing well, I've finished "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and plan on watching the 1999 movie version to see it acted out.
I've also signed up for the Les Miserables Readalong at Kate's Library. I'm actually behind on this, not having even cracked open the book yet. At this point I'm four weeks behind but again, I've read the first couple hundred pages before so I think I'll be okay.
I've posted links to my other failed book challenges below. Am I crazy to keep signing up for these? How many challenges have you failed and why?
