I like Reading Challenges but I’m cutting back on them a bit. In 2011 I’ll be doing:
The Complete Booker (an ongoing challenge with no time limit, I’m aiming to complete 2 or 3 in 2011, and I’ve chosen:
Read the Nobels (another ongoing challenge with no time limit) choosing from
- 1946 Herman Hesse
- 1973 Patrick White:
- 1991 Nadine Gordimer
- 2003 J. M. Coetzee
- 2008 M. G. Le Clézio
Then there’s another ongoing one, the 1% Well-read Challenge, reading from the always updating 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die. However, the 2010-11 incarnation of the challenge required 13 books from the expanded list (which combined all the books from all the editions) and I’m not going to do that, I’m sticking with 1% of 1001 books.
As you would expect from a compulsive List Lover, I’m also on Lists of Bests.
