How did everyone do on the challenge? Did you meet or exceed your goal? Did you get really, really close?
As a reminder the five levels were:
- 1st Shelf: Read 1-6 books
- 2nd Shelf: Read 7 -12 books
- 3rd Shelf: Read 13 – 18 books
- 4th Shelf: Read 19 -24 books
- 5th Shelf: Read 25+ books
I knew I had signed up to do 5th shelf (and read way more than 25 books), but I had forgotten that I said I wanted all of those books that I counted for the challenge to be by people of color. That means I had to go in and add a separate Goodreads shelf solely dedicated to books by POC that I read this year. As of today (Dec. 21), on the list with all books by and about POC, I have 47 books, and on the list strictly dedicated to those books by POC, I have 30 books, so I’d say I did all right.
Also, I said I wanted at least 50% of my books to be by or about POC and with 47/87 (again, as of Dec. 21), I have met that goal (that’s 54% for those of you not wanting to do math along at home).
Here’s where I would normally post that cute little button for the link up, but my inlinkz subscription ended, so we are going OLD SCHOOL for the wrap-up here. You can either post a comment here to tell me whether or not you met or exceeded your stated goal (here’s a link to the sign up post if you posted your goal in those comments and need a refresher) along with a link to your completed shelf OR comment with a link to your wrap up post by 11:59 p.m. EST on Jan. 1, 2017.
I’ll draw someone at random to pick a book of their choice (up to $15) from the Book Depository. In order to win the drawing, you must have signed up for the challenge in the original link up and you must post a link to either your completed shelf or a wrap up post in the comments to this post.
