Sheri, thanks for the invite. This seems like it would be a fun monthly challenge. I will try to incorporate it with the ones I am already doing. I am kind of a slow reader so I normally only read about 4-6 books a month. And in order to complete the ROR challenge I have to read 5 of those books each month. I am also doing a challenge through the DIK blog--read one book a month from their list, post a review on my blog and link it back to them. At the end of the year if I complete all 12 books my name will go into a drawing for a $50 gift card. I can buy a lot of books with that!LOL
I might be able to rearrange some books for the ROR challenge to meet this one as well. We will see!
Hey Sheri! I was determined not to accept any more groups but since it is you.... why not 1 more! LOL
I will try to do the ones that I can. :)
Hi, I just like to do the challenges because it seems to always lead me to more books to read that I wouldn't have tried before.
that is true! :)
This seems like a fun idea =)
Hi Sheri thanks for the invite. I think this will be a fun group.
This sounds like fun!
love the concept and seems like a good place to start as far as groups go, I should be able to keep up with this one
Here I am and I'll do my best but this is a busy time for my business. But I'll willing to try!
I really feel I'm at my limit for the amount of groups I can stay active with. However, I really liked your challenge ideas. I thought it'd be helpful for me to decide what to read next since my TBR is always out of control. So I'm gonna give it a go and participate as much as I can.
I am the same too Roman's Girl. I have been trying to decide which groups I might leave but I try to keep my hand in so to speak if I can.
I agree also, and it's not that I always go looking for more groups but I keep getting invitations that are sometimes hard to resist. As for this group that I created, I actually left another one so that I could start this one.
okay i finally made it here, i need something to get ride of my tbr piles hope this works...lol i have not been reading much..
I followed you from ROR. I haven't devoted much time to reading lately but I love your challenge. I'm determined to spend more time reading. I am so behind on alot of my series!
I love a good challenge! I hope it's not to late to join in?!
Hi Valorie! It's never too late. Feel free to jump right in. If you have any suggestions we'll be glad to hear those also. There is a discussion just for that, and of course for complaints as well.
Can I join?? :)
But of course. Glad to have you.
Great to have you. We welcome discussion too! :)
Just ran across this group yesterday. I'm going to try the May challenge. Sounds like fun.
Hi Jessica. Glad to have you with us.
I just came back to shelfari. Hoping to get more reading done. Looking forward to the challenge.
Hi Mary. Welcome back.
Welcome Mary and Jessica. Feel free to join our discussions. :)
Hello, everyone I'm new to this group, but I love to read. Ask anyone here as I see quite a few people here that I new.
Welcome to the madness... :) Have fun!!
Oh hrm...it just occurred to me as I read the various posts...is this primarily for romance books only? (which is fine since I read that genre too, but I read all genres so I wondered...)
I didn't intend for it to be that way. It's just what most everyone (myself included) is mostly reading. In the future, I'll make sure to add a few more non-romance topics to the challenges. Some of the challenges for this month will work for any type genre you want. It doesn't have to be romance.
Okie dokie! I didn't think so at first and then I wasn't sure...glad I checked!
Hi Sheri. Thanks for posting the invitation to your group in one of our mutual groups (think it was Grab a book and pull up a seat). Fascinating challenge. I participate in the RoR challenge but don't see why I can't do both. Technically I have tons of challenges going on outside the RoR challenge anyway. Thank goodness I have them all posted on my blog otherwise I would never remember them all. Since it is 3 weeks into August I am not sure I will be able to read all the challenge prompt books but I'll do my best.
Hi Christina. Welcome. Just jump on in whenever you get ready. If you would rather wait until I post September's list, that would be okay. Or you can read whatever you can of August's list. It's up to you. Sometimes I don't manage to read all 5 myself. I'm not a very fast reader. But, I think 5 is a good enough goal to set for each month. If you have any suggestions please let me know. I appreciate all comments and suggestions. Thanks for joining and I hope you enjoy the challenges.
Hello Sheri, great group I like book challenges so I'll try to participate when I can.
Hi Ursula. I'm glad you joined us.
Hi everyone :) I'm new to the group. I love to read and love a good challenge.
Hi Stephanie. Welcome to the group.
Hi, I'm new to the group.These challenges look really interesting. I look forward to reading new things and having some fun.
Hi Lauren. Welcome to our group.
Hi everyone !
Thanks Casey for the invite to the group. Let's see if I can do the challenges.
Welcome to the group Tash! It's usually eas to find books for the challenges, but finding the time to read them...that's the hard part!
Thank you Christina.
You're right Casey, I will easily find the books in my huge TBR pile (great way btw to get those books done), but the time to read all those books, will be a whole new problem...lol...I'm going to look around for the April challenge this weekend. I still have enough time left.
Welcome! We're glad you decided to join us.
Thank you Sheri
I love challenges! I'm glad I found the group.
yeah, someone new. We've undergone quite a few restructures over the past couple years and we struggle a bit with participation but I'm really glad you're here Diana! Welcome~!
Thanks Christina! :D
