Updates for 2017 Reading Challenge

Back in February I shared my 2017 Reading Challenge choices, and I bet you’re wondering how I’m going!!

Well…I’ve finished four of them, and started two more – 15% done for 25% of the year. Not great.

It’s not that I’m not reading (I’m actually reading way too much) it’s that other books keep getting in the way. I read six more for review because I was given them for free, and another three because – well I just had to!

And I started another one today (because a it’s by Stephen Baxter, b it’s the sequel to War of the Worlds, and because c did I mention it’s Stephen Baxter people!).

So I’ve still got the one I’ve failed at before, and the incredibly-dry-300-pager, and all the archaic language ones to go.

But it’s about time I faced up to my commitment. I’ll have to pick up one of the harder ones next, and there’s no place like starting at the top. Better stock up on tissues too, Watership Down, here I come!
