Reading Challenges

Ok, I said I wasn't going to do this.  Last year I said I was only going to join one reading challenge and I did -- the 2014 Goodreads Reading Challenge.  I am only two short of my goal and I think I will make it -- maybe.

However, I am really into mysteries these days and I happened upon two challenges that I find interesting.  One I learned of from JLSHall's blog.  It is the Cloak and Dagger Reading Challenge hosted by Amy at

This should work right into my reading preferences these days.  The other is Cruising Thru The Cozies --

 I think I will make more of an effort this year to read some of the modern Welsh literature for the Welsh Literature group.  I joined this group ages ago and have never really participated so I think I will have to take a closer look at this one in 2015.

 I will, of course, continue with the 2015 Goodreads Reading Challenge because that is what keeps me reading.

I have been looking for a good "series" challenge but so far I haven't found one so I will just list those books on the Goodreads list.

It is hard to believe that we are gearing up for another year -- time flies when you are reading good books!

Editing because I found another challenge for series books -- it is Finishing the Series also hosted by

Ok, done now.

Every year I say "no more challenges" -- but of course, I always back down. I do think they make me read more, though, so I guess that's OK. Yeah, I've been considering the Cozies challenge, too. I love cozy mysteries, but haven't read many of them lately, so maybe I'll think a little more about that one.

Welcome to the cozy and series challenges! I hope you have fun!

(Like you, I'm always saying no more challenges but then I go ahead and join more.)

Just wanted to stop in and say Welcome to the 2015 Cloak & Dagger Reading Challenge!

Amy -- thank you, I am looking forward to it.

Yvonne -- thank you -- I am really into cozy mysteries and I seem to love series books so this should work well for me.

Joanie - yeah, I know but they are sort of fun. The cozy mysteries are fun -- the Agatha Raisin ones are really good as are the Aunt Dimity. I have also listened to some Hammish MacBeth on audio. All good.
