"I Must Read, Read, and Read. It is my Vocation." - Thomas Merton
This is where I chronicle my reading life. I also blog about writing at Lacey's Late-night Editing.
At last, my 2015 reading challenges are concluded. I admit that the last two months were somewhat lackluster, as I began eying the finish line and became more interested in what I would read in 2016 than what I had left to read in 2015. Since my 2016 reading challenges do not relate to specific months, my wrap-up posts will be less tied to specific time periods.
November - Swapping Sites
My memberships at Paperbackswap and Bookmooch are largely to blame for my unwieldy bookshelves. So my November theme was to choose books that had come to me through swapping sites. I read:
December - Get Thee To a Library
My intention was to spend most of the year "reading down" the massive TBR pile of books I actually OWN and then to indulge in some library selections for the last month of the year. As always, I did not read as many of my owned books as I hoped, nor get through as many library books as I wanted to. Here are the library books I DID manage to finish.
As for my other challenges:
From my Into the Forest Reading Challenge, I read
For the Popsugar 2015 Reading Challenge I read ...
I left 11 items "unchecked" from the PopSugar challenge, which isn't bad for a challenge I wasn't really "trying" to complete. They were: A classic romance, a book with a number in the title, a book your mom loves, a book you were supposed to read in school but didn't (what!? I read EVERY book I was supposed to read in school, except an Abraham Lincoln book I did a report on in 5th grade, and I don't know how I would track that one down again), a book with antonyms in the title, a book that came out the year I was born, a book from my childhood, a book with a color in the title, a book that was originally written in a different language, a book written by an author with my same initials (I have no idea -- my initials are LL, LLV, or LV), and a play.

And that's it, folks! Of course, I'm already off and running on my 2016 reading challenges - wahoo!!
