AWW 2016 Update

AWW 2016 Update 

AWW16My updates are few and far between this year, especially in the later half because of work and personal reasons but I’m slowly continuing my reading and my AWW challenge. With a few months to cover it looks like I have done quite well, reading a total of 11 books, upgrading my score to 23/20. I thought I may reach this mark, but with my blogging falling on the wayside (as expected looking at previous years) I was worried about making my target. Luckily those four months were rather productive and I can say I’ve read them at least. The next step is reviewing them.

Having reached the 20 read goal I’m going to bump it up to 25. A small increase but with a lot to review I’m limiting my increment again to allow a catch up. That and I’m not reading much at the moment so I’m safe for a while.

AWW 2016 Update

AWW16My first update covered three months, this time I’ve got two months to deal with and magically I have a few books to look at. I realised yesterday that I actually had read a few Aussie ladies and that another update was needed. I thought when I was doing this I’d post a reminder without being able to add anything new so I’m quite pleased. In future I am aiming for a monthly recap which means I’d best get my reading into gear and have something to update about. But for now I have a wonderful bunch of books to add to my list.

There is still plenty of time if you wish to join the challenge, you can sign up at any time during the year until the end of November. Visit the AWW website for more information.

I’ve had to update my goal limit because I’m doing better than I thought I was going to. I’m bumping it up to read 20, review 16. Small increments for safety for now.
