Weekly Geeks #9: Challenges

June 25, 2008 at 8:35 pm (100 book challenge, Herding Cats, Reading challenges, Spring Reading Thing, Weekly Geeks)

I was planning on going through my list of reading challenges, see how I’m doing, update them, etc. even before I knew it was the Weekly Geeks challenge for this week. I notice that a lot of other people have said that, too. I think this is coming at a perfect time: June is almost over and that means that half of the year is almost gone (eek… where does the time go?). So, it makes sense to review these, no?

I haven’t been so good about doing updates on these. I’ll count this as an update for all of them, then start working on keeping more up-to-date with these.

Here are the challenges that I’m in right now:

The biggest challenge that I’m in is to read 100 books this year. I’m about to finish 48. I’ll have 50 read by the end of June, which makes me happy. Also, after reviewing the answers everyone gave when I asked “What counts?”, I’ll be expanding what I’m counting for that challenge. I’ll start including all the non-fiction that I read, as well. (Thanks for all the thoughts/suggestions on that one, btw. I posed that question on my blog and a few communities I’m in. It was helpful to get so many different perspectives, especially since a lot of them said much the same thing.)

The Herding Cats challenge is probably the one that I’m doing the most poorly on. I’ve only read one of the three books. I have until November 30th (my wedding anniversary, btw) so I’ve got enough time to get the other two in.

I read all of my books for the Spring Reading Thing 2008 – a lot more quickly than I’d thought, actually. Next time, I’ll have to try for more.

And, finally, we have Weekly Geeks. It’s not required that you participate every week, which is good. I was sick for a while there then got busy and didn’t really have time to do much. But I’m posting this week, aren’t I?

What does the future hold? I really enjoy these challenges, so I hope to join more.

If you’re participating in a numbers reading challenge

June 22, 2008 at 11:58 am (100 book challenge, General)

If you’re participating in a “numbers” reading challenge (and by that, I mean x books in y amount of time – like the 100 books in a year challenge), what do you count? Do you count everything? Fiction? Non-fiction? Books with short stories? Diet books? Craft books? Recipe books (surely I’m not the only one who sits down and reads these cover to cover)?

For the past several months, I’ve ONLY been counting the fiction books that I’ve read. Part of my reasoning for doing the 100 book challenge was to encourage me to read more fiction – non-fiction has never been an issue. But, I will say, I usually read one or two books each week (some weeks, I read SEVERAL) that “don’t count” for one reason or another. I haven’t, for instance, been counting diet books. I haven’t been counting really any non-fiction (not since the first few, anyway). I haven’t been counting craft or recipe books.

Would counting these things be cheating? Would you count them? I’m thinking of counting them, because, hey, I read them. I feel frustrated when I see my number being so low (of course, I do try to remind myself that I have already read more books this year than many people will in their entire adulthood… it doesn’t help) because I KNOW I’ve read more than that. Also, although this is a contest with myself… I feel frustrated when I see people reading tons of short books to up their count (aka I’m not the only one reading this many books in a year). And while it’s GREAT that people want to read more… and not everybody reads quickly… I dunno. I guess I just feel frustrated and annoyed by the whole situation. I feel like I’m being penalized for wanting to have some sort of “rules” as to what I count. I also feel like… well, most of my books are 400 or more pages (with a few exceptions) and that almost feels like I’m being penalized as well.

I’m kind of lost as to what I should count and what I shouldn’t count. This really has very little to do with what “officially” counts and what I feel comfortable counting.

I guess my question, after that long rambly post, is this: what do you count for your challenge? And, how did you determine that? Did you decide on the “rules” ahead of time? Or do you just count ANY book you read?

Running behind.

June 16, 2008 at 9:10 pm (100 book challenge)

Unfortunately, I haven’t been reading as much as I’d like to lately. I’ve been busy. I’ve been sick. I’ve had “stuff to do”. Consequently, I don’t think I’m going to make it to 50 books read by the end of the month. I might, but there’s a strong possibility that I won’t.

I’m not too upset, though, as there are plenty of people who don’t read that much in a year, let alone six months. And I think I’ll still make it to 100 by the end of the year… I’ve been reading a lot more books this second quarter of the year than the first. I don’t really see that changing anytime soon.

Come to think of it… the read-a-thon might get me to 50 books by the end of month.

Let me just say, by the way, that not having to go to the library and having books delivered to my mailbox instead saves a lot of time and makes it easier for me to read a lot of books. I LOVE my Paperspine subscription.
