Dorte, well done, congratulations.
To answer your questions I do participate in reading challenges. My favourite.................
Have you ever heard of the 2010Global Challenge? Highly recommended

Dorte - Nicely-done! And thank you for the the kind words about B-Very Flat*blush*. As far as reading challenges go, I would have to agree with Jose Ignacio. The 2010 Global Reading Challenge is exciting, and I'm glad I've been participating in it. Have you tried that one ; ).

Well done on the completition of another challenge. I've only ever taken part in two but am considering doing a third if I can get hold of the books needed.

Jose: oh, you are so kind.

Oh, Margot, I have - but compared to Jose I am far behind :D

Tracy: thank you. I also like waiting until I am sure I can complete the challenge so I am hardly going to try more this year.

Very good!! I love seeing the titles people used to meet the categories. I'm already working on next year's categories!

Congrats on finishing. I started out great with challenges this year but now I'm starting to flounder. I have just one more for your global challenge -- 4 months left, right?

Dorte H sagde ...

Beth: oh yes, you have plenty of time for your last global book. I have four left, but then it is my only challenge now.

Congratulations on completing this challenge, Dorte!

I did my first challenge last December and signed up for two this year (one of which I've completed). I have a feeling I will try more next year.

Bernadette sagde ...

This has been my first year for challenges, I have completed two and another 3 to finish. I agree with Jose Ignacio - the best is the global challenge (definitely the most challenging).

Vanda Symon sagde ...

I'm only participating in one challenge this year, something about Global... but failing miserably!

Dorte H sagde ...

Bernadette: oh, you are all so kind!

Vanda: why do you think it is the only one *I* haven´t finished yet? :D

Dorte H sagde ...

Kelly: I didn´t mean to forget you. I was also very cautious when I joined my first challenges, but so far I have only had fun with them and not felt too much pressure. I don´t want to join too many, though, as my blogging & reading time can only be taken from my writing time.

Clare: it is such a charming book!
