2014 1st quarterly reading challenge

The first quarterly challenge for this year on one of the groups I'm a member of on Goodreads was to read books that have been on your to read list for a long time; they have to have been on your to read list for at least three months at the start of this year, so anything that's been on my to read list since before the end of September 2013 counts.

The highest level they gave was 12 books, but since I'd already planned to work on reading as many of the books I'd had on my to read list for ages as I could this year - with a few new additions thrown in from time to time - and I read a lot, my plan was to just see how many I managed before the challenge was over.

Well, today's the last day of the challenge, and I managed 50 books for it, as well as reading some that didn't count because I'd added them to my to read list too recently or they were re-reads, which I never count at all. Not bad, if I do say so myself!

Many of them have also been used for other challenges I've finished this year, but some were only used for this challenge.

Pretty good, but not amazing.

Yeah, I've read a lot of books so far this year. I'm not sure how I'm fitting everything in, to be honest, LOL!
