Reading Challenge Progress: October

2013 Reading Challenge ProgressYup – posting this early because October is booked up with lots of nonfiction posts.

Sadly, I only managed to finish one book for my challenge in September. And you already know about it! I mentioned it in my last Twitterature post, but I finished Your Signature Life: Pursuing God’s Best Every DayDianna Booher's Your Signature Life: Pursuing God's Best Every Day by Dianna Booher.
It was very very mediocre, and didn’t make me regret letting it languish on my bookcase for as long as it did. Actually, it made me wish I didn’t bother to finish it. Kind of a waste of reading time.

Although I did knock another one off my TBR shelf, by giving up on it. I won’t be finishing How to Talk About Jesus without Freaking OutHow to Talk About Jesus without Freaking Out with Study Guide, and while I’m not counting it for the challenge, it’s still another book that’s no longer taunting me from my bookshelf.

If you’re blogging about your progress, feel free to add your post link below – it’ll stay open all month. Or you can leave a comment on the post.

Link Up Guidelines:

  1. The link-up will stay up all month. The next link up will be November 1.
  2. Link the unique URL of your post, not your blog’s home page. Readers may view link ups months after the fact and you want to make it easy for them to find the relevant post.
  3. Please include the 2013 Reading Challenge Button (unedited) or mention you’re linking up to the 2013 Reading Challenge at The Deliberate Reader.
  4. Share your post and read and comment on those who link up.

Curious about what books I've read for the challenge? You can see them on my "2013 Reading Challenge" shelf in my Goodreads account. (You do have to be a member of Goodreads to see the shelf.)

  1. It is probably best that you only read one book in September, because October is going to be full of posts! You need a bit of rest. 🙂

  2. Sometimes it’s good to just declare a book a “no” and decide not to read it. I used to have such a hard time doing that, but it’s such a freeing feeling not to have a book I don’t enjoy hanging over my head.

    • I am better at it than I used to be, but I still have room to improve. I should have said no to that one book I did read for the challenge this month – it was so blah, and so not worth reading.

      But that freeing feeling you mention of NOT having a book hanging over my head – Yes. That.
