I’m a bit behind on blogging; there are posts on thermal wind and some dance performances that have been in the works for a while. But I wanted to do my quarterly book update!
I’m at 215/250 on my Goodreads goal. I think I was at 163 when I updated at the beginning of July, so it was a slower quarter (read as: fewer picture books). I’m still on track to complete that goal pretty easily.
I’ve read at least one book for twenty of the twenty-four categories. Like last time, for two of those, the only books I’ve read for the category are short-ish, illustrated poetry books. It would be nice to read other books for at least one of those. Also, I’ve acquired a micropress book! I think I’ll be able to finish this challenge.
2017 Diversity Bingo
I’ve read at least one book for thirty-five of the thirty-six categories! I currently have a book for the last category checked out from the library, so this should be done soon.
I’d read four books on this list previously, so I’ve added four to it to get back up to 52. Those four are Corinne Duyvis’s Otherbound, Riley Redgate’s Noteworthy, Alice Oseman’s Radio Silence, and Jaye Robin Brown’s Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruits.
So far, I’ve read Otherbound, Noteworthy, Radio Silence, Georgia Peaches, and twenty-eight books from the main list. That means I’m at thirty-two books out of fifty-two, so I’m seven books behind, oops. There are still four I can get from NYPL on Overdrive, so I’ll definitely try to at least read those. I don’t think all 52 will happen, but I’m going to aim for 40.
Reading What’s Currently On My Kindle
When I started paying attention to this, I had 75 unread books in English on my Kindle. I now have 88. Also, I’ve bought some ebooks not on Kindle. Uhh. Since the last update, I think I’ve read 12 ebooks that I own? I’ve continued reading a good bit from the library.
United Methodist Women Reading Program
I’ve still only read one book on the list. Success in any version of this challenge is highly unlikely.
Queer Summer Reading
Laina and Lucia ran a cool thing in July and August, and I read books for it! I read one queer book for each of the categories: an ID I share, an ID I don’t share, own voices, set in a different country, nonfiction, a genre I read a lot, a genre I don’t read much, a comic/graphic novel.
