Update 3: Clearing The Hoard – Bookwyrm Challenge

Hey everyone!

For today’s post, I will be sharing my 3rd update post for the Clearing The Hoard – Bookwyrm Challenge, which was created by the lovely  Caffeinated Fae.


Rules for the Clearing The Hoard – Bookwyrm Challenge

Do you want in on this? Feel free to adapt the idea! Use this as an excuse to read some of the books on your bookshelf! All you need to do is once a month read a book that you previously owned! Once you’re done reading that book decide if it’s a keeper or if it needs a new home! Make sure to tag Caffeinated Fae so she can share your posts!


Here are my stats from when I originally took on this challenge:

Total physical books owned: 388
Total physical books read: 95
Total physical books unread: 293

Total eBooks owned: 65
Total eBooks read: 22
Total eBooks unread: 43

Overall total number of books owned: 453
Overall total books read: 117
Overall total books unread: 336


Here are my stats from update 1:

Total physical books owned: 313
Total physical books read: 102
Total physical books unread: 211

Total eBooks owned: 72
Total eBooks read: 24
Total eBooks unread: 48

Overall total number of books owned: 385
Overall total books read: 126
Overall total books unread: 259


Here are my stats from update 2:

Total physical books owned: 424
Total physical books read: 105
Total physical books unread: 319

Total eBooks owned: 83
Total eBooks read: 31
Total eBooks unread: 52

Overall total number of books owned: 507
Overall total books read: 136
Overall total books unread: 371


And here are my newly updated stats:

Total physical books owned: 429
Total physical books read: 112
Total physical books unread: 317

Total eBooks owned: 90
Total eBooks read: 32
Total eBooks unread: 58

Overall total number of books owned: 519
Overall total books read: 144
Overall total books unread: 375


Okay, so when I did my 2nd update, the stats for update 1 and update 2 were so different, that I thought I had miscalculated on update 1. As you can see, update 3 is closer to the stats of update 2, so I definitely calculated something wrong with update 1…

Despite the fact that I have read quite a few books since my last update, I’m still not doing great with this challenge. I keep saying I’m not going to buy new books, so that I can focus on my shelves, but I keep giving in and buying more anyway! I am going to stop buying new books for a while though, and this time I mean it (DON’T LET ME BUY ANY MORE).

I am currently reading 2 physical books, and plan on reading 3 ebooks this month too, so that will be 5 more books cut off my unread number!


How are you getting on with your goals and challenges for this year (if you have any)?

let me know in the comments!
