This last month I've been in participating in Megan's Semi-Charmed Winter Book Challenge and so far, I think I've steadily been making ground. I wasn't able to finish the summer challenge, so I'm hoping this winter will afford me plenty of downtime to make up for my summer failure.
Check out my Preliminary List.
Here's where I'm at after one month of reading:
10 points: Read a book written by an author who has published at least 10 books. | Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott (Currently reading)

20 points: Read a "bookish book" (in which books play an important role, e.g. the setting involves a bookstore or library, a major character is an author, or a book that celebrates reading and books. (Examples: The Book Thief, The Shadow of the Wind, The Thirteenth Tale, etc.)
20 points: Read a book with a direction in the title (e.g. north, south, east, west or any combination of those).
