Not signed up for YALSA’s 2015 Hub Reading Challenge? Read the official rules and sign up on the original post. Anything you’ve read since February 9 counts, so sign up now!
There are six weeks left in the Hub Reading Challenge and I’m pretty close, but having a hard time concentrating and prioritizing. I blame (at least in part) the season, a combination of spring fever and an abundance of television series finales and big movies which, like Geri, distract me to an embarrassing degree (though in my case it’s Agent’s of Shield–well, the whole MCU actually–Orphan Black, The Americans, Vikings, iZombie…) Plus, I have been doing oodles of reading for the One Thing Leads to Another interview series (such a hardship! Not.) and that has actually cut into my challenge reading to a significant degree.
Still, with six weeks and seven books left to meet the challenge it’s possible. It could happen.
What about you? Have you developed a laser-like focus? Are you overwhelmed by end-of-the-school-year or beginning-of-summer events? Are you close? Have you given up on meeting the deadline but are dedicated to finishing anyway? Have you finished?
Let us know where you’re at in the comments, and keep the conversation going on social media by using the hashtag#hubchallenge to post updates on Twitter or by joining the 2015 Goodreads Hub Reading Challenge group. You have until 11:59 PM EST on June 21st to finish at least 25 books from the official list, and if you participated in the Morris/Nonfiction Reading Challenge this year, you can count the books that you read for that challenge for this challenge as well. Also, don’t forget to post the Participant’s Badge on your blog, website, or email signature, and, as always, if you have any questions or problems, let us know in the comments or via email.
If you have already completed the challenge by reading or listening to 25 titles from the list of eligible books, be sure to fill out the form below so we can send you your Challenge Finisher badge, get in touch to coordinate your reader’s response and, perhaps best of all, to notify you if you win our exciting grand prize drawing! Be sure to use an email you check frequently and do not fill out this form until you have completed the challenge by reading 25 titles.
