Books, TBR Challenge

Cora’s TBR Challenge Check-In

Hello fellow readers! We’re 2/3 of the way through 2021–how is your TBR Challenge going?

Mine is still going so very, very slowly, lol. But I’m making progress. I recently had my schedule changed at the day job, so I’ve started sleeping better and that makes me want to get back into the things I’ve been neglecting this year (reading among them). I’ve also continued to listen to audiobooks while I do yardwork–I’m about 3/4 of the way through Persuasion at the moment with a long weekend of outdoor chores coming up, so I expect to finish that one shortly. I’ve got two other (paper) books going, but they’re both professional development-type things, which have been difficult to focus on lately. I’m hoping both the schedule change and long weekend will help me reduce this sleep deficit I have going, and the PD things will be interesting again 🙂

So, while I’m still in the single digits of books read this year, we still have 18 weeks or so left in 2021 and I think I can get to my goal of 20 TBR books read. If I can do it while getting my writing back on track, even better!

  1. Hi Cora! I hope your day job schedule is better! I think audiobooks are your answer to the TBR! I recently went back to the office a few days a week, but not my office that was 5 min away. Now, I’m 20-25 min away, driving on the Long Island Expressway. So, I listen to audiobooks in the car when I’m driving (helps with road rage. LOL). Also, when I walk on my break. I’m doing well on the TBR – No specific books or category, but my overall number of 121 read, so far. I donated a few more books to the library and have swapped a bunch with Paperback Swap. Looking forward to Romancing the Gold Coast next month!


  2. Hi Sharlene! My new schedule is *so* much better 🙂 Once I start going into the office, I think I’m going to listen to audiobooks in the car, too–I’m in the same situation you are with the short old commute and a longer new one.

    Have fun at Romancing the Gold Coast!
