It’s time for another update on the three reading challenges I’m participating in this year (I first wrote about them here if you’re interested). All of the books basically fall under the #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks challenge, but for the sake of tracking eBooks and physical books, I’m keeping them separate.
I spent zero dollars on books this month which is excellent. I was a bit premature when I wrote that first sentence two weeks out from the end of February, for on the second last day of the month I purchased a book. I’ll do better in March. This month I also got some ARCs from NetGalley, so I need to work on not hitting the ‘request’ button on that website and I borrowed one book from the library, which was naughty, but it was a book for the Read Harder Challenge so it’s completely acceptable. Here’s what I read:
I’ve done much better with the eBooks this month, after a terrible start last month. The eBooks I read were:
- Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
- The Murdered Banker by Augusto De Angelis
- The Art of Reading by Damon Young
- All These Perfect Strangers by Aoife Clifford
- The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen
- Messages from A Lost World: Europe on the Brink by Stefan Zweig
So far my total eBooks read for this challenge is: 9
Whoops. The only one of my own books I read this month (aside from a reread of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which I’m not counting for this challenge) was War & Peace, and I haven’t even finished it yet.
So far I’ve read 4 of my own damn books.
I crossed three tasks off the list:
- Read the first book in a series by a person of colour: The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf by Ambelin Kwaymullina.
- Read a collection of essays: Messages from A Lost World by Stefan Zweig
- Read a book that was adapted into a movie, then watch the movie. Debate which is better: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (my debate with myself will be posted soonish)
Number of tasks completed: 7/24
