I’ve spent the past week catching up on the wonderful discussion happening over at the Goodreads 2014 Hub Challenge Group which you should definitely investigate if you haven’t already. So many insightful comments and lots of diverging opinions–be sure to check it out if you want to talk books with your fellow reading challenge participants.
I’ve really enjoyed reading those Goodreads threads, but I confess I’m not making much progress with the challenge itself. I’m close, though, and there’s still time. To be honest, I haven’t even attempted a challenge book since finishing Max Berry’s Lexicon a couple weeks ago, because I’ve been reading interview-related titles in preparation for upcoming One Thing Leads to Another posts. Thank goodness for the two 2014 reading challenges (this one and the Morris/Nonfiction) which shortened my interview reading list considerably and exposed me to authors and titles that I might have missed otherwise.
What about you? Are you still making progress? Stuck in a rut? Taking a break? Have you completed the challenge? Let us know in the comments and don’t forget to join the social media conversation by checking out the Goodreads 2014 Hub Challenge Group and the #hubchallenge hashtag. Here’s some of the awesome tweets we’ve collected over the past week:
