I haven't posted a challenge update since May, but I have been reading books that count toward my challenges.
I have read 9 Classics Club titles since September 2012, so I need to read at least one more before the end of August to stay on track. I am participating in Austen in August for which I plan to read books off my Classics Club list, so that should work out.
