A Challenge for All

September has begun!  I was over reading at Bart's Bookshelf when I saw his post reminding me of Carl's wonderful RIP experience!!!  I am amazed that it is in its sixth year and will be my fifth time participating.  Time flies when you're having a quarter life crisis, falling in love, changing jobs and going back to grad school! 

I will be trying to hit Peril the First with 4 books and throw in a few Perils on the Screen as well.  as for a pool of book possibilities... 

  1. Feed by Mira Grant
  2. King Rat by China Mieville
  3. Children of Men by PD James
  4. The Year of Disappearances by Susan Hubbard
  5. Autumn by David Moony
  6. Three Seconds by Roslund and Hellstrom
  7. Handling the Undead by John Ajvide Lindqvist
All of these books are in my house, unread.  If I can get 4 off my to read list that will be great.  I believe I will take King Rat on my trip to Louisiana this weekend.  10 hours in the car can make for good reading, if someone else is driving.

  1. Wow, you've had a lot of stuff going on. Good stuff it sounds like.

    5 years! Doesn't seem like it could have been that long since you did RIP for the first time. Great to have you as one of the "old timers". :)

    Hope you enjoy whatever you read. I've heard good things about Feed.

  3. Children of Men sounds really good. I'll have to track down a copy for myself.
