  1. All the luck for your challenges. I’m sure you’ll slay them properly.

    • We will see. Thanks for visiting!

  2. I love doing reading challenges to give me more incentive to read and listen. I’m doing three of those with you. Cheering you on, Angela!

    • That’s great. Hope you enjoy your challenges. I’m looking forward to a new year. ^_^
      Happy Reading!

  3. I only ever do the Goodreads challenge; honestly I don’t really care for them because I’d rather read at my own pace.

    • I like the Goodreads Challenge. It helps me keep tray of my total read in the year. I find challenges fun, but they aren’t for everyone. Thanks for visiting Melanie. Happy Reading!

  4. Angela I’m so happy to see you trying COYER and my Thrifty Thursday Challenge. It’s hard when you do too many. I enjoyed the Audiobook Challenge and the hosts are marvelous but it isn’t a challenge for me, as I normally read 100+ audiobooks a year. I look forward to connecting with you on the COYER challenge which is an ongoing community.

    • Anne,
      I’m looking forward to the new challenges I picked. I tried to go with stuff that can cross-post as well as still give me a bit of a challenge. Too many can get overwhelming. When I first started I did a lot of challenges, but my kid was smaller then and it worked, but now I’m running around more driving to and from places, so not as much free time for me. I’m trying to be more active with the COYER community. I usually sit in the background and watch, so its a change. ^_^ I’m hopping to get to more than 12 freebies in Thrifty Thursday, I have so many, but wanted to start off simple and see how I do. Thanks for visiting and hosting your challenges.
