Review Copy Cleanup - Wrap Up
The August 2012 Review Copy Cleanup Challenge is over! To sum up, I kicked this challenge's butt. I mean, I didn't actually catch up, because I got a whole bunch more review copies during the challenge, but I read way more than I planned to, so I consider it to be a huge success!
At the start of the month, I had 7 review copies, and my goal was to read 5 of them, along with 2 books I needed to read for other challenges. I read 6 of those original review books, plus another 5 review copies I got during the challenge! Wow! Altogether I read 16 books, 11 of which were review copies. Basically, I'm sick of looking at my Kobo, haha. One thing I've learned in the last month is that while I don't mind ebooks, I have my limits!
I now have 7 review copies, which is the same number I had at the beginning of the challenge, so technically I didn't actually catch up. But this month I definitely got more new review copies than usual! I got a few new NetGalleys, plus a couple physical copies I'd requested ages ago, and a few authors contacted me with review requests. So it's been a busy month. I'm super happy with my progress, and just want to thank Vicky and Celine for organising the challenge again. You guys are awesome!
