2019 Reading Challenge Check-in(Part 5 of 6)

We’re in the home strait now. Just two months to go to finish two reading challenges. Yes, despite my promise to only do the reading challenges one at a time, I found that I get through audiobooks much quicker than physical books so, with nothing to do but get sick trying to read books on the bus, I decided to tackle Dancing with Sci Fi and Fantasy’s Reading Challenge alongside #Ampersand’s Reading Challenge

Goodreads 2019 Reading Challenge

138/150 books

Looks like I was right. So long as I keep on track with my other reading challenges, I should nail this one with five books to spare!


I’m very happy with my progress but some of the books are the longer ones I’ve been putting off so I can tackle the longer ones. My last holiday of the year has come and gone but, if the rain stays on my side (and if my legal work doesn’t eat up too much of my time), I should smash them all by 31st December.

The outlook is looking bright even as the sky turns grey!

I hope to see you again very soon.
