I just realized that with Oliver Twist I hit 100 books for the year. Granted, some of them were re-reads, but I still read them. That’s not bad for a year’s reading methinks. I think it might even qualify me to have finished another Challenge somewhere, but I didn’t actually join that one. Of course, without audio books, I’d never get anywhere near that sum. Nowhere. Not even close. I love audio books. They make me feel like I have a whole lot more time than I really do – and they also make cleaning the house a whole lot more enjoyable!
I also finished the Classics Challenge, maybe even twice over. Since July I’ve read:
The Book Thief
The Screwtape Letters
The House of Mirth
The Time Machine
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
The Invisible Man
The Time Traveller’s Wife
Catcher in the Rye
To Kill a Mockingbird
Far From the Madding Crowd
A Christmas Carol
The Count of Monte Christo (but it might be Jan before I finish this one)
I didn’t link, but you can find them all on the left under the list of books read.
I managed Option 2 plus the Bonus Round of A Should Be/Will be Classic.
Come to think of it, I might get around to buying/reading the Dickens Christmas Stories collection, so that would clear Option 3 as well. My inner Hermione is happy now.
If anyone knows of any new challenges for the coming year, please let me know. I’d love to do this again.
