Good Sunday to you. It is June, and for those of us in the northern hemisphere, it is almost summer. I am finishing up the last couple of weeks of school, a rushed and exciting time. June is also a great time to evaluate reading challenges. It is my second year of participating in challenges, my second year of blogging about my reading.
After looking at the results I am pleased with my progress. There are a few challenges where I am lagging behind and am thinking of dropping, just because my focus seems to be going in different directions. More free time over the summer may help. I am also seriously considering joining Nymeth for the Middlemarch read-along. I will be take a look at that very long book this week and come to a decision by the weekend. That may seriously impact my reading for the next two months.
Here are my challenge numbers. If you are interested in any of them you will find links in the column on the right side of this page.

According to my Goodreads shelf, I’ve read 81 books this year. At least a dozen are graphic novels and several are children’s picture books but they still count! At this rate I will read over 150 books this year. Quite happy with that.
How about you? Are you pleased with your challenges this year? Pleased with your reading? Are there some things you would like to change?
The sky has been gray and rainy for most of the last two months. Yesterday, the sun was out and the soil dried a bit, it was glorious and I did some work in my weed-filled garden. This morning it is raining again so I will spend some time curled up with with A Place of Greater Safety or Austerity Britain. What are you planning on reading today? This week?
