My Reading Challenges update

I was probably a bit overly ambitious this year when I set off down the path of trying to complete 5, count ' em FIVE, challenges. But, challenges for me aren't particularly stressful because I really just use them to occasionally pull me out of my comfort zone, out of my usual picks, and into new reading territory. I don't view challenges as a competition or a "must finish" situation and if I don't finish, I don't really care.....it's just a fun exercise.

So at just a little over half way through the year, here's a quick look at my challenge stats:

You might notice that I've read 58 books but satisfied 95 challenge categories.....a little double dipping going on there! And at 95 categories satisfied, I'm not quite half way and yet just over half way through the year. Might have to step up the pace a bit.

Here's a little more info......just cuz I'm that kind of reading nerd!

Or, maybe you're interested in how many books / pages I read each month?

What sort of info do you track with your reading? What method do you use - a notebook, a reading log, Excel, or none at all?

Welcome to Bookshelf Journeys.

It's our goal to provide real reviews of the books we read (and we both read a lot of different genres), so that you can be introduced to some new books or authors to add to YOUR TBR (to be read) list. Take a moment to explore, read a couple reviews, and let us know what you think.


For your convenience, we use #hashtags in our reviews and when you click on one, you'll find more books with that theme. Hopefully you'll find it a helpful way to navigate our site and find books you'll enjoy.

Our review ratings are based on a 5 star (we do use 1/2 stars sometimes) system, and hope you find that helpful. Knowing, of course, that all opinions are just that - our opinions!  Let us know if you agree or disagree - we want to hear from you.

If you like what you see and want to keep up with us, subscribe below.  Happy Reading!
