Book Blogger Hop - 8/11 - 8/17

 Question of the Week:

Do you participate in readathons and/or reading challenges? (submitted by Kristin @ Lukten av Trykksverte)

I AM OUT OF TOWN.  I WILL TRY TO VISIT BLOGS.  
HAVE FUN!!

My Answer:

Challenges are not for me.

The only challenge I participate in every year is Goodreads.

Readathons and challenges that have BINGO-style suggestions for books and reading certain genres or books with certain letters or words is just too stressful for me.

I like to enjoy my reading with "no strings attached."  :)

  2. I tend to stick to the simple ones. Where I say I'll read X many books. No specific genres, just overalls. I add in things like I'll read this many new releases, this many TBR books (though that particular challenge I joined I don't like as much because I never know how many TBR books I will read per month.) and I also said I wanted to finish some series too.

    Here's my Blogger Hop

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. Definitely good on the simple ones.

      Why stress yourself is my motto.

  4. Nice answer. Elizabeth! πŸ˜„πŸ‘

    I stopped participating in these things quite a while back because I just couldn't keep up with them! Readathons are particularly stressful for me, as I'm a slow reader, lol.

    Another reason was the fact that I RARELY got comments back after commenting on other participating blogs.

    I agree about the "bingo-style" readathons and challenges! And "no strings attached" reading is DEFINITELY my cup of tea, too!!

    I'm on my cell right now, so I'm sending a whole bunch of emojis your way!! Thanks for sharing, and ENJOY your weekend!!

    1. Love all the emojis...thanks.

      It is difficult to keep up and definitely difficult to read for readathons.

      Thanks for commenting, Maria.

  5. Great answer! I've found that many challenges are too stressful for me as well! I see the challenges as more of a to-do list, and I'm always rushing to cross everything off.

    1. I don't need another to-do list either. :)

      Thanks for commenting, Erica.

  6. I love the idea of a little direction with my reading but I'm not very good at them. I can definitely see how they'd be very stressful. Like you I'm a Goodreads Challenge only reader.

    1. A little direction is always helpful. Good point.

      Thanks for commenting, Katherine.
