2017 Beat the Backlist Reading Challenge – June, July & August Update

Copy of Review Banner

Okay, so I am here for my next update of the Beat the Backlist Challenge! I have given up on the points part of this for 2 reasons. One is that I kept forgetting to enter the points and then because there was no way to know what I had entered and what I hadn’t I was either missing books or doubling up. Second, was that the host was taking FOREVER to update the points thing to see who was actually winning and it was irritating me when it was like over a month… I get that people have lives but if you don’t have the time to keep up with something then don’t do it in the first place.

Anyway! You can find my January & February Update HERE & my March, April & May Update HERE!

And if you don’t know what the Beat the Backlist Challenge is, it’s basically reading books that aren’t new releases (so for this specific challenge it’s any book published in 2016 or earlier!

And BTW I got new graphics on my blog! Let me know what you think of the new graphics?!

Beat the Backlist Point Summary (3)

So this is how many points I have earned, however I haven’t entered all of them into the Submitting page on the website of the creator of this challenge. For one thing I forget to do it and second they hadn’t been bothering to update the points and which house was in the lead for over a month and I just got sick of it and didn’t see the point. I get that you are busy but don’t start a challenge like this and say you will keep it up to date if you don’t have the time to do it. They have updated it recently but I don’t remember the last thing I submitted and there is no way to find out, I know I missed a few in May but just didn’t know which ones I had and hadn’t submitted and I don’t want to submit the same books again.


Well that is all for this update!
