Read Harder – May Progress

Yet another month filled with a lot of reading, but with very little of it counting towards Book Riot’s 2015 Read Harder Challenge. I need to make a list (or you know…look at the list I’ve already made) and read with a purpose. Too. Many. Books. Must. Read. All of them.

I ended up shuffling two of my husband’s books around to maximize categories he’s completed. I moved The Three-Body Problem from #12 Science fiction to #7 Takes place in Asia. A Canticle for Leibowitz now holds the #12 Science fiction slot.

With this shuffling, the three of us can lay claim to the group completion of two additional categories – #7 Takes place in Asia and #12 Science fiction. This puts us at a quarter of the way through the challenge. Go us!

Without further ado, our stats and books, color-coded to make it easier to know who read what:

Me 15/24 (3 in May)
My Husband 9/24 (2 in May)
Sophia 18/24 (3 in May)
