Guilty Reader Book Tag

This original tag was created by ReadLikeWildfire. I don't think that I am a very guilty reader. Just like how I am, in real life, I don't really feel like I have to hide what I think or feel about things -- and that includes books.

Have You Ever Regifted A Book That You’ve Been Given? 

Regifted, no, but I have traded a book for something else when a step-grandparent-in-law got me a book I already had. I switched with my sister (in law) Kathleen for a shirt she didn't like but I did from the same person.

The RIP Readathon is hosted by Paige of Creating and Co - it runs from October 16 to the 22nd. There are 7 challenges (listed below), plus daily photo challenges and three bonus challenges. PLUS Paige created a readathon sticker kit just for this week and I will be sharing that later today here on the blog, but it should be live on Youtube the same time this post goes up.

Series Challenge - Update #3


At the beginning of 2017 I was in the middle of 63 series. In March, I went through my TBR on Goodreads because it was over 3000 books and that is entirely too many. I decided to take some of the series off of my list because I was no longer interested in finishing the series and life is too short for subpar reads. In August, I went and removed a ton more books off my TBR and I'm around 1500 now - which is so much better than 3000!

As of 10/1...
I have finished 1 series (with all the books released up to Dec 31, 2018).
I have started 5 new series (and added 1 back on that I thought was done, but wasn't - whoops)
I have read 7 books in series


So not using math from the last update (because I'm sure all my adding and subtracting won't be correct), I am currently in the middle of 53 series.

You can check out my list of series books here. I will be back for my final update in January.
