Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.
Today marks the last day of Carl’s RIP IV Challenge.  It also marks the completion of my very first long-term challenge!  Looking back on what I said I was going to read and what I ended up reading, I’m slightly surprised and yet completely satisified.  I signed up to read four books during this challenge.  I ended up reading eleven.  I branched out and read a scary book by Joe Hill, one I would have never read at any other point of time in my life.  I read a lot about vampires, which was not my intention, but should not surprise me at all.  Overall, I am happy with my choice of books.  While I wish that I could have delved even further into my chosen list of books to read, I understand fully that I had very limited time during this entire challenge.  I am very glad I participated and can’t wait for next year’s challenge.  Who knows?  Next year, I may even try the king of horror himself, Mr. Stephen King.  It is a challenge afterall!
