I am enjoying the book I currently am reading, and yet I find myself avoiding picking it up through no fault of the book. I think it is the time of year. So much else has my attention.
I dedicated this evening to updating my blog. Putting together some of the ideas that had been percolating in my mind for the last couple of months. I added the list of books that I have read so far this year, updated my links, and decided to join in another challenge.
I stumbled on the 2007 Winter Classics Challenge quite by accident. Recently I have felt tied to reading books outside of what "felt" right in the moment and so it was with some reluctance that I decided to take on this great challenge. I think it will be worth it though. The classic novels I have selected are ones I have been wanting to read for quite a while now. I own all of them already and therefore this is just another added way of getting more TBR books off my shelves. That should make hubby happy.
The 2007 Winter Classics Challenge involves reading five classics during the months of January and February. My selections are as follows:
1. Emma by Jane Austen [finished 02/11/2007]
2. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury [finished 01/13/2007]
3. The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett [finished 02/18/2007]
4. Catch-22 by Joseph Heller [finished 01/29/2007]
5. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy [finished 01/12/2007]
Emma is a crossover from the 2007 TBR Challenge I will be starting in January. I figured one duplicate would be okay in the long run.
The coming year is promising to be a good one reading wise! I am looking forward to the many adventures that await me.
