Several people had been writing about reading challenges so I had a wee look around and spotted this post from the Storyteller Matters blog... with a link to several challenges. This one from Modern Mrs Darcy looks do-able.
- There's several on this list that I have been meaning to get around to ... a book that I own and have never read - phew - that's probably half of those on my shelves.
- A book I previously abandandoned - see above. Someone pointed out to me once that if you read a book a month that's only around 500 books for a lifetime -Good point - So why finish something that you don't like when you could be really enjoying some new author. A case in point is J.K. Rowling's A Casual Vacancy - I could not get into that at all. One to be relegated to the book Corner. But there are more that might be worth another visit.
Apart from the book you can finish in a day which will be a challenge, the others look great. Have you got any suggestions for that?
And Paris Letters which I wrote about here ... another 5* from me
And still continuing my binge of John Grisham novels, just finished The Testament - brilliant.
And lastly The Savage Garden by Mark Mills which was not a bad read - a good thriller.
Goodness knows when I'll have another month of binge reading like that but it was great to escape for a while.
What now!! Maybe a book I abandoned.
What are you reading at the minute?
