- Did you finish all the books you had planned to read? If not, why?
Do you think the challenge helped you read more? Or maybe helped you read books you otherwise wouldn't have?
What was your favorite book you read this spring? Least favorite?
Did you discover any new authors or genres that you now love?
What did you learn about your reading habits or interests?
Are you interested in another "Fall Into Reading" challenge this fall
The challenge definitely helped me read more, and helped me read books I probably wouldn't have. Making a concrete list and posting it for all to see (including myself lol) kept me motivated and organized. So often, before, I would acquire books and put them on my shelf to read, then get sidetracked by a new book from the library, or bookstore, etc. Having this challenge really helped me keep on track and actually read more.
I hate choosing favorites...I like so many things! But my favorite from this challenge would have to be Life of Pi (Peony in Love a close second.) My least favorite was Middlesex. The one I was most surprised at was Oh My Stars. I expected it to just be an ordinary kind of read, and it turned out to be quite involving.
I can't say I discovered any new genres or authors that were new to me.
I learned that my reading habits definitely fluctuate. Some days I just want a light read, others I want something engaging. Sometimes I'll read every day for weeks, and sometimes I just stop for a few days. And yes, I am already looking forward to a Fall Reading Challenge lol!
