Challenges Complete!

I've been a bit neglectful in reporting my challenge successes. So far, I have completed my commitments for TWO (yes, two) reading challenges:

First, the A-Z Mystery Author Challenge sponsored by Michelle at Red Headed Book Child. I signed up for Authors with last names A-I and completed that commitment on February 8th with the following list:
A: The Fashion in Shrouds by Margery Allingham (1/25/11)
B: A Flaw in the Blood by Stephanie Barron (1/30/11)
C: All Booked Up by Terrie Curran (2/5/11)
D: A Graveyard to Let by Carter Dickson (1/31/11)
E: Publish & Be Murdered by Ruth Dudley Edwards (1/19/11)
F: Flying Finish by Dick Francis (1/29/11)
G: The Leavenworth Case by Anna Katharine Green (2/8/11)
H: Why Shoot a Butler? by Georgette Heyer (2/2/11)
I: Death in the Garden by Elizabeth Ironside (2/4/11)

As mentioned on my Challenge post, I will probably go ahead and keep reading through the alphabet, but my declared challenge level has been met.

Second up, The Dewey Decimal Challenge is sponsored by The Introverted Reade. I completed the Master level (4 books) on February 14th, but as with the A-Z Mystery Author Challenge, I'll still be reading non-fiction books. I've got about three more on my lists for other challenges. Here's what my completed list looks like:
1. Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald: An American Woman's Life by Linda Wagner-Martin (2/14/11)
Live or Die by Anne Sexton (1/21/11)
Time to Be in Earnest: a fragment of autobiography by P. D. James (1/18/11)
4. The X in Sex: How the X Chromosome Controls Our Lives by David Bainbridge (1/21/11)

Wow, two of my challenges down....maybe I need to go find a few more. After all I am a Challenge Addict, you know!

Congrats! I'm only involved in 5 challenges (so far) but I'm a slow reader. I'd love to finish them up early, but who knows?
