65 Books of 2010; 75 Books 2011

I don’t know if I can actually get to 75 books in one year, but I’m thinking it’s possible — I definitely can do 50 again, but I’ve got some longer books on my list than the discworld books were. Below are two lists — a recap of 2010, and a goal list for 2011. …

50 Book Challenge: 60-65

Week 52 As the year winds down, I’m posting the last brief reviews of books that I’ve read this year.  My initial challenge of 50 books in a year seemed daunting at first (a book a week?  Who has time?) yet I somehow did it, and I don’t even feel like I spent that much …

50 Book Challenge: 56-60

Week 45 56. Wintersmith – Terry Pratchett, read by Stephen Briggs This is a Tiffany Aching book. I didn’t care for this one as much as the previous Tiffany books, but I still really enjoyed it. I think the problem with the Tiffany series is that none of the Big Bads have been as compelling …

50 Book Challenge: 46 – 50

It’s all over!  50 books in 39 weeks.  What’ll I do now? 46. Right Ho, Jeeves – P.G. Wodehouse In the last year or so, I watched all of Jeeves and Wooster, starring the delightful Fry and Laurie.  It should be noted that I am in love with both Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, and …

50 Book Challenge: 41-45

5 Books left! It is the end of week 37, and I have just finished book 45.  I feel like I should continue reviewing books I finish after the fifty, keep counting to see how many I finish, because 50 is now basically inevitable.  Maybe my challenge for next year will be to try to …

50 Books: A List

So, the reason I started this 50 books thing was because I had so many unread books that I had obtained in one way or another that I really wanted to read and that I hadn’t made time for.  There were, as of January, probably 80 unread books in my house.  Due to me being …

50 Book Challenge: 26-30

It is the fate of all banisters worth sliding down that there is something nasty waiting at the far end. — Terry Pratchett We are coming to the end of Week 24/52 and I’ve read 30/50. I suspect it will be even slower from now on, I may start posting individually when I finish books …

50 Book Challenge: 16-20

16. The Ordinary Princess – M.M. Kaye This is a children’s book and a great deal shorter than most of the other books on my reading list.  I say it makes up for those Asimov books which are long and dry.  Of course, I haven’t finished those yet.  This is sort of similar to Ella …
