A Couple Challenges

I decided to join the World Citizen Challenge, at the Minor level. So i intend to read 3 books this year. that's it. :) anyway, this is a non-fiction challenge and, for me at least, non-american. I've requested The Chrysanthemum and the Sword from my library to start soon.

Also, I am going to tackle the TBR light challenge. I'm going to do 6 books from my pile but won't have to stick to these particular ones.

  • Giovanni's Room by James Baldwin
  • Dust by Elizabeth Bear
  • Children of Men by PD James
  • Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevski
  • Neuromancer by William Gibson
  • Empire of Ivory by Naomi Novik
So that is totally it for now. Though any that qualify as sci-fi will of course be registered over at Carl V's Sci-Fi Experience.

  3. I look forward to seeing reviews of your sci fi books especially. Neuromancer is one that I really am wanting to read.
