As the months move along and those steaming mugs of tea are being replaced by clinking ice cubes cooling our beverage of choice I decided to skip the finger pointing regarding falling behind in the challenge (which will commence in the next updates anyway) and instead share some stats about this reading challenge with you.
43% Chamomile Lover (2 books)
31% Berry Tea Devotee (4 books)
12% Earl Grey Aficionado (6 books)
14% Sencha Connoisseur (8 or more books)
With a total of 51 participants the challenge has a nice size too. As is the case in my other reading challenge, here too only a handful of readers aren't book bloggers, but obviously needed some additional motivation to battle those chunksters.
As I already mentioned upgrades to higher levels I don't really recall any volunteers right now, but personally I am contemplating to possibly maybe go for Earl Grey Aficionado (despite failing last year *sigh*). Everyone's slightly more comment-friendly in this challenge (or maybe it seems this way as there are more participants) with lots of familiar names popping up in the comment section each month. So let me give a shout-out to some of you today: Bettina, Ciska, Margaret, Karen, and Geoff.
Curious about who is participating in the challenge? Go here.
Updates for the challenge will be posted regularly on Sundays near the end/beginning of a month and the next date will be September 1st.
