Challenges I Won’t Complete in 2009…

The days of 2009 are dwindling and it is clear that a couple of reading challenges won’t get completed. They are:

2009MiniChallenge 2009 Mini-Challenges for A Novel Challenge Yahoo Group hosted my ME!

Yes, you read that correctly. I won’t finish a challenge for which I was actually the host. Oh well. I just lost steam on this one and decided I didn’t care if I finished it or not. Although I’ve hosted this challenge for a couple of years in a row now, I won’t be hosting it for 2010. I’ve put out feelers at the Yahoo group but have no takers for this yet…so it may be so-long to this challenge for now.

To see what I did manage to complete, visit my post about my progress here.

spice-of-life1Spice of Life Reading Challenge hosted by Rebecca.

I am actually really disappointed in myself for not completing this challenge – it was only FOUR books, and I couldn’t pull it off. I have a terrible track record in completing food related reading challenges, and I haven’t figured out why since I own a gazillion cookbooks and books about food and fiction which is food related. I just don’t seem to read any of them! I read one measly book for this challenge…to see my review of it (and look at the books I managed to ignore) visit this post.

Many thanks to Rebecca for hosting this original challenge – she put a ton of work into it and had mini-challenges and fun posts throughout the challenge period. I know I should just bow out of food-related challenges from now on, but if she hosts it again, I will probably not be able to resist.

  1. You did finish some of your challenges, which is good. I wouldn’t be too disappointed that you didn’t finish these…its supposed to be fun, right?!

    If it makes you feel any better, I didn’t finish my own challenge but I did finish your Mini-Challenges. (It was a big push toward the end but I managed to do it.) So in a way, this evens everything out!

    There are two challenges that I will not complete in 2009 either. But so what, right? It’s supposed be fun anyway not a chore 🙂

    Happy new year to you and your loved ones!

    Serena: I am happy with what I did this year – and you’re right, it is not supposed to be work…it should ALWAYS be fun!

    Jenners: LOL! Thanks – that does make me feel better!

    Lilly: I agree!!! Happy New Year to you and yours as well!
