Challenges Completed

  • Shakespeare Reading Challenge — 12 plays in a year.  3 histories, 3 tragedies, 3 comedies.  Overall I enjoyed the challenge, but at this point, I definitely need something else.
  • Telling Tales — This was a much more difficult challenge to finish, but I finally did it.
  • Science Fiction — Mixed results in my enjoyment, but some good reads.
  • Books2Movies — Twenty books made into movies.  This challenge will be on the list for next year.


November was awesome!   I knocked out three reading challenges and over 4000 pages.  Traveling to Indiana for Thanksgiving allowed me a ton of time for reading on planes and in airports.  And I used my iPad to read most of those books.  I’m hoping to finish at least four more reading challenges in December and finish 2012 out with a bang!

Next Month’s TBR — Last chance to knock out those reading challenges

  • The Magician King by Lev Grossman
  • The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan (about halfway through)
  • The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins
  • The Firemaster’s Mistress by Dickason
  • Arthurian Romances by Chretien de Troyes
  • Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky
  • The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O’Connor McNees
  • Some book about food…
  • The Bridge of Scarlet Leaves by Kristin McMorris
  • More nonfiction?
