Chris of Book-a-rama came up with this monthly challenge update, which I haven’t done for awhile.

Here’s how I am doing and some changes I am making.
Completed 2010 Challenges:

The Canadian Book Challenge 3 13/13 books

Themed Reading Challenge 2010 6/5 Books

Year of the Historical Reading Challenge 14/12 Books

Audio Books Challenge 3/3 audio books 

Still Working On Challenges:

Pub Challenge 2010 8/10 books

Chunkster Reading Challenge 2/4 books

Historical Fiction Reading Challenge 14/20 books

New Authors Challenge 18/20 books

I have also decided to cut down on the number of challenges I am participating in.  I find that keeping all of these challenges up to date is too time consuming and I would like to focus more on actually reading books.  Some of the above challenges, I won’t be re-newing when the time comes.  

The following challenges I am no longer going to be working on and therefor not complete.  Thanks so much to all of the hosts of theses challenges, my quiting is no reflection on your challenges.  They are all great!:

O.A.T.E.S. Book Reading Challenge

Global Reading Challenge

Women Unbound Reading Challenge
