The Romance Reading Challenge 2009: My Bad

Well, I believe I've finished wrapping up all the 2009 reading challenges I actually completed. So I guess it's time to talk about my one total failure in the bunch.

The Romance Reading Challenge looked sooo tempting back in December of 2008, when I first signed up. And I had every intention of reading all five of those romance novels I had lined up.

Never happened.

I think the only book I read all year that could even vaguely be thought of as a "romance" would be Edith Wharton's The Age of Innocence. I guess I'm just not as much of a romantic as I thought I was.

So, my apologies to Naida (The Bookworm) who hosted the challenge. And I still think it's a great idea for a challenge - just not the right one for me.


  1. I buckled on a few of mine as well. I do them for fun so I try not to get to upset. Better luck next time. I'm doing this one this year. Are you going to try again?


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
