The Finish Line: The I Suck at Challenges Challenge

Pin It


Well folks, that's the end of the challenge but I've had requests to keep the updates going. So, every month we'll do updates on our challenges here at book-a-rama. I'll come up with a snappy name and a button ;)

So, how did you all do? Surprisingly, I managed to keep on track and finished quite a few- even the Canadian Reading Challenge! Yay!

So here's how things look:

Just for the Love of It: 3/5 (uncompleted)
The 2nd Canadian Reading Challenge: 13/13
Dewey's Books Reading Challenge: 5/5
The Eco Reading Challenge: 3/5 (ongoing)

Now for the winner of my surprise package:

Bookfool

Here's what I collected.



*A variety of bookmarks
*Some bookplates
*Notebook
*I<3 reading button (plus bonus)
*Anne-Julie mirror


Congrats Bookfool! Email me your address and I'll get it out to you.

My thanks to everyone who left comments and links to updates. I really appreciated your participation!

Any final thoughts?

  3. I didn't know this was an actual challenge! Is it still on? Or are you doing another one? Cause I suck at them, really I do. I might win the next one if you hold it. You are a great Canadian, you finished Canadian Challenge 2 Eh. I'm such a bad Canadian I read 3 books in total! See? I suck at challenges!!
    I love joining them though, and I am going to get to 13 Canadian books read for Can 3!!!
