I managed to complete two challenges this month. Click on the challenge title to see my wrap-up post.

Books about Food
Cornelia Funke

I also completed the graphic novel category for the 999 challenge.

How did you do this month? Did you meet your reading goals? Did you complete a challenge? Are you caught up on your reviews?

Hah, I'm not at all caught up on my reviews. I have 3 to write and will probably finish 2 books today on top of that. I did meet my goals in terms of reading, though, just not in terms of keeping up with reviews.

You have definitely had a productive month! I can't read fast enough, and I get frustrated. Good for you on the challenges! Most of mine don't end until late this year, so I've got some time!

I feel like I'm upping my monthly average compared to last year but I don't want to test that theory.

looking good, Beth. I have 3 reviews to write and hopefully will get caught up in a couple days. You have some good books on your list and adding some to my wishlist. Good job with the challenges.

Wow Beth! You read almost as much in February alone as I've read all year so far! Congratulations, and keep up the good work.

Wow!I have to admire your productivity! I am so behind in my reviews ... but I suspect that is because I keep a personal blog too and that takes up a significant portion of my time. My poor little book blog sometimes get neglected!

Melody 3/1/09, 10:28 PM  

Way to go, Beth!
I've read 15 books so far...

Darlene 3/1/09, 11:14 PM  

Awesome job Beth. You've been doing really great with your reading. I need to step it up here. lol.

Congrats on finishing up a whole 999 category!! I can't wait for my "1st"!! :)

Ladytink_534 3/2/09, 10:57 PM  

Congrats! Oh my, 49 hours? I really couldn't do that. I have a tendency to finish a book once I've started it and knowing me, I'd try to stay up the entire length reading/ listening to it.

I'm still not caught up on my reviews but I'm doing very well now :)

Wow! You are just buzzing through this. Me? I don't wanna talk about it...lol!
