Challenges - Title Scramble and Crossword Puzzle

This has been my most successful online read-a-thon to date. I completed ALL my goals!!!

I did extremely well at the very beginning of the read-a-thon because it was a weekend and I signed up to participate in many read-alongs which I was already behind on as I signed up a week into June, so that weekend I tried to catch up on the Read-along schedule. It seems the verdict is that Read-alongs are good for me, so I'll be participating in a few more of those if I can. Do you have any recommendations for monthly Read-alongs? I prefer discussion based and not just a review at the end.

I didn't do quite so well from Tuesday onwards as I was back at work after the long weekend. I'm still quite happy with the amount of reading I've done, I've already finished 2 out of 3 read-along reads (Hourglass and Eleanor & Park) which isn't due to be finished till the end of this month. I'm still to finish the 5th Wave for another read-along.

I had lots of fun and the only thing that I regret is not being able to participate in a Twitter chat. Looking forward till the next WWRead-a-thon!

Awesome list of books!

I just finished Eleanor & Park, and I loved it, so I hope you will, too :) And I can't wait to read The 5th Wave! It seems it will be the July read-along book :)

Happy reading!

You're going fantastically! Can't wait to read your review of the 5th Wave when you get to that.

Hello Angelica!

I saw your comment about the drop down menu. You just need to find a good tutorial on the internet! Things like 'Drop down menu blogspot' will give you many hits :) It took me quite some time before I understood how it worked, but with some trial and error it will work out! :)

Ange said...

Wow! Congratulations, you managed to read a 6 books!!! YAY!!! How did you like School Spirits?

Congratulations on meeting the goals. I never got around to doing the crossword puzzle, I didn't notice it until too late in the game and I didn't know like ANY of the clues!

You did a great job! You read a lot of books that I want to read soon. :)
