Winter Reading Challenge

December 27, 2006 Categories: Books | 7 Comments  


Time for another reading challenge. For this challenge, winter means from now until the end of February – at least, for me.

To start with, I want to finish all of my current in progress books:

Reading Like a Writer: A Guide for People Who Love Books and for Those Who Want to Write Them by Francine Prose

Redemption by Leon Uris

Education of a Wandering Man by Louis L’Amour

The Collected Works of Emily Dickinson

Proverbs and Sayings of Ireland Edited by Sean Gaffney & Seamus Cashman

Bibliotopia: Mr. Gilbar’s Book of Books & Catch-all of Literary Facts And Curiosities Compiled by Steven Gilbar

I also want to read at least five more from the top portion of my Master To-Read List. The top portion includes books that I currently own and are waiting to be read.

    I peeked at your list, I love HHGTTG! :-D

    I should make a to-read list. Instead of reading all my faves over and over! LOL

  2. Mama Heffalump

    Impressive list… Go Carrie! Go Carrie! I’ll be your cheerleader! *Rah*

    Mama – Thanks!

    Ooooh, write about your reading, please do! Can you imagine having the last name of Prose and being a writer? I’ve always had a secret desire to write a bathroom book about peoples names and their occupations.

    Eager to hear more!

    I’m getting my list up soon. Soon. Soon. =)

  5. carrie

    Carol – I will be posting many, many quotes from Prose’s book and also from Education of a Wandering Man. It’s a perfect book for homeschoolers! Write your bathroom book – I’ll buy it! ;)

  6. Lawanda

    I am so sorry! LOL I did not feel like typing it all out! Douglas Adams is a riot :)

  7. Mommy Brain » Links for Friday

    [...] I have a couple of posts rumbling around my head: one on The Awakening and Selected Short Fiction by Kate Chopin that I hope to get done in time to participate in Semicolon’s Saturday Review of Books, and one on my complete and utter failure to meet my goal in the Winter Reading Challenge. But for right now, here are a few links that intrigued me, entertained me, or made me think this week: [...]
