When Is A Challenge Really Not A Challenge?

I took up the Goodreads challenge last year and challenged myself to read twelve books in 2020. And I did it. I read twelve full length books. The only thing is, I read them all in January and haven’t picked up a book since. That begs the question, did I actually fulfill the challenge or just worked my way around a technicality. What do you think?

  1. I think that 12 books read within the calendar year 2020 – is 12 books read for Goodreads. I am awed and amazed that you managed to read all 12 in one month. I am putting together the list of books that I read last year, for a future blogpost. The total approaches 30, but they were spread all throughout the year – and I am retired. 🙂

    1. I amazed myself too. The year before I did 30 for the year! This year when COVID hit I just didn’t have time for much of anything. Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to comment.


  2. 2020 was a rough year. I say if you managed to get it done before the world went to… well, we all lived it… then take the win.

    I’m sorry, I couldn’t find your 2021 A to Z posts.

    It’s hard to believe the alphabet part of the blogging challenge is over for 2021. Down to the after survey, reflections, and the “road trip” sign-up.
    Plus, I’m taking part in the Bout of Books read-a-thon in May. So much excitement!

    1. Thank you for dropping by. I was only able to do three of the A-Z challenge post before life intervened. Hopefully next year!
