2015 Reading Assignment Challenge Wrap-Up

Reading Assignment Challenge - Not Completed

Because Reading is better than real life
This challenge has you read specific books spread out over the course of the year. I chose level 5 which means that I intended to read 4 books a month from my preset list. I was allowed 4 credits to read an extra book from the list in any given month, and 1 pass to not make the reading goal for a particular month. I started off well, meeting my challenge for the first 3 months, but began to drop off then, reading only 3 books in April, May, June, July, and August. September and October I only completed one book each month, and went back up to two books for the months of November and December.for a total of 33 of the 48.
