Birth Year Reading Challenge 2019


Well...I failed miserably at J.G.'s Birth Year Reading Challenge for 2018. I took advantage of the option to read from the birth year of a family member and had high hopes to read 13 books from my mom's birth year (1947). Yeah...that didn't happen. So far I've got four done and might get a fifth (but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you....). So, I'm going to give 1947 another try. I'm going to be a bit more conservative for 2019 and say that my challenge goal will be six books. Hopefully, I'll manage more than that, but if I make six then I will be able to claim the challenge as complete.

Books still remaining on the TBR pile from 1947:

Final Curtain by Ngaio Marsh (2/14/19)
Murder at the Mardi Gras by Elisabet M. Stone (4/20/19)

Welcome back, Bev! I'm happy to have you along again, and hope your 1029 reading is more successful than 2018. It looks like you've got some good books to chose from!
