    I’m impressed you undertake so many challenges ShelleyRae. I appreciate everybody reads at their own pace and it isn’t a competition but…..any tips for reading more?

      Most of the challenges just suit my reading selections anyway. I don’t really have any tips per se,. I’m lucky in that I read pretty fast, about 100 pages an hour, and I don’t work full time, which means I can read an average length book in an afternoon. The other days I sort of find blocks of time, 10 minutes here, 20 minutes there where I can.

    The Pick Your Poison challenge looks full-on! Good luck with all of them. I’ve kept my Goodreads challenge the same as last year (120) but hoping to exceed it. The under-promise over-deliver strategy!

    I’m doing all of these but the Pick Your Poison one! I’m looking forward to them. The NF Challenge will truly be a challenge for me. I looked more closely at the rules and had to change my goal to the Nonfiction Grazer so I’m not limited by categories. Hopefully, that’s okay. Also, I’ll be watching your blog for recs on which great Australian books to read. I just started Tea Cooper’s newest.
