Wow. December of 2010. I know everyone says this but it is amazing how fast this year has gone by. I'll be doing a big, long, end of year post later this month, but today we are already talking about next years challenges!
So, i have one challenge that goes through April 2011, the 1% Challenge. The challenge is for 13 books off the 1001 list, of which i've read 6.
Next, i think the Shakespeare Reading Challenge sounds fun. I'm going to read (or most likely listen to) 6 plays, of which 2 i can see performances of instead of reading. Perhaps after B and I finish A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court we might try a play. We both happen to have the exact same copies of the complete works. We are lit geeks; B was even an English major!
The Vintage Mystery Challenge also looks fun, though i be i am going to be a bit more vintage than expected. I've started loving some oooooollllldddddd mystery novels, so i am sure i can conquer the "Get a Clue" level of 7.
I currently have over 140 books on my TBR list on librarything. wow. And that doesn't count any i may receive for Christmas! Or all of B's lovely books. so i am jumping on the Off The Shelf reading challenge at the "Making a Dent" level of 30 books to read. I can do it!
As a personal challenge, i want to get some of those Russian books off my to-read list. I've not read War and Peace and intend to read that in 2011. So if anyone knows if a Russian challenge is up let me know! I'm sure there will be a couple more challenges anyway, beside the regular ones I sign up for at Stainless Steel Droppings.
I have never hosted a challenge and have no plans to do so this year. I'm a follower, not a leader! :)
and holy crap, i just realized this is post 800. I can't believe i'm still doing this! Thanks for reading!
