Week 13! How are you all doing? I’m closing in on 20 eligible books read and I’m feeling pretty good about my progress. More than that, though, I’ve read some really great titles that I would have almost certainly missed. Gene Yuen Lang’s Boxers & Saints was just as amazing as everyone said, and I loved Max Barry’s Lexicon, one of those books that wasn’t on my radar before the Alex Awards. Thanks, Hub Reading Challenge!
I’m also really enjoying the check-in comments, as well as the conversations taking place over social media at the Goodreads 2014 Hub Challenge Group and on Twitter (#hubchallenge hashtag.) Check out the tweets we’ve collected from participants and join the discussion if you haven’t already!
What about you? Have you read anything you might have missed if it weren’t for the Reading Challenge? What are you loving this week? How are you feeling about your progress? Keep reading, and don’t forget to track your titles by checking in here each Sunday to let us know how you’re doing and to find out what your fellow participants have to say.
