Challenge Update – January

Just a quick update on how I’ve been going with my challenges for 2011 (and I’m getting cabin fever at home!)

By the end of January, I have made the following progress:

2011 Aussie Author Challenge

My challenge: Tourist level (3 books by 3 different authors)

In January, I read:

  1. The Distant Hours by Kate Morton
  2. Naked Cruelty by Colleen McCullough
  3. Shall We Dance? by Maggie Alderson (does this count? Not sure, as I believe Maggie used to live in Australia. She is listed as an Australian author in Wikipedia! But…I won’t count it).

So two thirds done!

Haruki Murakami Reading Challenge 2011

My challenge: Hajime (one book)

No progress so far.

The Sense and Sensibility Bicentenary Challenge 2011

My challenge: Neophyte (read the original)

No progress as yet!

Historical Fiction Challenge 2011

My challenge: Struggling the Addiction (10 books).

In January, I read:

  1. The Distant Hours by Kate Morton
  2. Naked Cruelty by Colleen McCullough
  3. Fall of Giants by Ken Follett

30% complete!

2011 Reading From My Shelves Project

My challenge: 20 paper books (am excluding ebooks).

I read eight books off my shelves, which was impressive. All are going to family or friends, then the Save the Children booksale.

How are you going with your challenges this month?
