📚📚 Read Every Day Challenge - Winter 2024 🎍☃🌲

Alygator’s Winter 2024 Reading Challenge

I haven’t joined any reading challenges since my first one in the winter of 2023. Time to get back at it again!

Inspired by @MissDagger 's multilingual calendar I will do the same for Japanese and Spanish primarily and maybe some Korean with a goal to read in another language everyday.

Wrap Up

すごい! 完璧数点だね! I’m so surprised I was able to read everyday for the last two months. I honestly wasn’t expecting that from myself. The last three days of February were particularly tough for me. I almost gave up thinking to myself that hey I’ve done so well, why not give yourself a break one or two days, but the feeling of wanting a perfect score was stronger thank goodness.

I really enjoy having a mix of reading materials. When I used to read regularly in English, I was the type never to start a new book before I finish the one I’m reading. The same goes with crafts - I would usually finish my pending project first before starting a new one. But somehow with Japanese, it feels different. I feel sort of refreshed that I can go back and forth between different materials.

Recap of each month below for when I’m feeling demotivated.


  • Read 29/31 days in Japanese
  • Read 10/31 days in Spanish
  • Finished 聞き耳ラジオ on Satorireader
  • Began playing Animal Crossing in Japanese
  • Began rereading Ruri Dragon


  • Read 29/29 days in Japanese
  • Read 3/29 days in Spanish
  • Finished Sakura and Suzuki’s long distance relationship on Satorireader
  • Finished up to Week 8/9 of Ruri Dragon (3 more chapters to go!!)
  • Started reading Dr. Dru’s stories
