Back in November 2013, I decided I would challenge myself to read 5 books from this list. I bought 3 of them. That's as far as I got! I'm ready to deem this challenge a miserable failure and move on. What about you? Have you failed or met any challenges this year? Tell me about them!
Here is a link to to the list: http://flavorwire.com/423424/50-incredibly-tough-books-for-extreme-readers/view-all/
I saw this come across my Facebook feed this morning. I have a thing for lists, so I clicked on that bad boy. Of course I thought this applied to me, (Extreme Reader here!), and it is quite the list - so I decided I would challenge myself to read 5 of the 45 that I haven't read in 2014.
Here are my 5 choices:
- The Painted Bird by Jerry Kosinski
- The Castle by Franz Kafka
- The Underworld by Don Delillo
- The Demon by Hubert Selby Jr.
- Dhalgren by Samuel Delany
I'm looking forward to broadening my horizons a bit with books that I probably wouldn't otherwise read. I like to challenge myself.
The five books on this list that I have read are:
Moby Dick (HATED it!)
Geek Love (LOVED it!)
Pet Semetary (Liked it, but will never read it again)
Johnny Got His Gun (Liked it, but will never read it again)
Sophie's Choice (Liked it, I might read it again.)
