Why is this the perfect challenge? Because I have a number of non-fiction books that are sitting on my shelves and, although I am interested in reading them, I often tend to default to fiction. This challenge will get me focussed on an area that I really need to address. Perhaps this is the perfect challenge for you too!
I'm finally starting to make my list so I can start my 5 years in January. My problem is I'm really trying to not use all my modern history books. Which I own a ton of, but I would prefer to dig into my piles and find more ancient history books. I have half my list constructed so far.ReplyDelete
You have found my only challenge that is, so far, an embarrassing fail. Do you notice that I say "so far"? But honestly, already next year is filling up with read-alongs and challenges and I don't know if I'll get to any on my list. I may change up my list a little too.Delete
Have fun making your list. I know you read lots of history, so you'll do much better than I have.
I haven't read as much this year as I should have. The problem to with the list is the heavy weights on it, lots of long works.ReplyDelete
