Well I failed...:-D

Ok, so I failed my own February Paper Book Challenge! Why? Well, you might ask and I have a perfectly fantastic answer. Simply because at the end of the day I will always choose reading a book I have been waiting months for the release of, over the completion of a challenge.
Reading is fun for me, a lot of fun, if I deprive myself of reading a book that I really want to read immediately then I'm lessening the fun!

In this case the culprits were Angel by James Patterson and The Autumn Palace by Ebony Mckenna. Both of these books jumped my challenge queue. And Why? Because the authors write awesome books and I could not wait until the end of the month to read them, simple as!

And so, for the first time in my life, I can say I am proud to fail at something. Because this failure led to hours of reading about winged bird kids and a not so psychic girl names Ondine. :-D

Will i challenge myself in the future with other books...Probably. Will I do the same again and have books jump in and push my challenge out? Once again, probably!
Anyway, that's all.

  1. I wouldn't call that failure, just a change of direction! lol! I am doing the # of books to read in 2011 from goodreads- that way you aren't limited from those books you are anticipating!

    Keep up the good work!

  2. lol yeh, I like your thinking! A good change of direction. I've just finished my Net Galley ARC of The Goddess test by Aimee Carter...Amazing :-D
