I'm going to try very hard to post these updates at the beginning of each month, because it will make a difference for the other participants. This is a challenge where you are given a list of categories and you need to read a book to fit each. The categories each have a point value attached to them - and you are shooting for 200 points (or completing each category). One of the categories is to read a book that another participant has read for this challenge... hence me doing regular updates. I also keep track on my Challenges page.
So, how am I doing? As of right now, I have completed 50 Points.
- Read a book that has between 100 and 200 pages. 5 points
The Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thornton Wilder
- Read a book with “boy,” “girl,” “man” or “woman” in the title (or the plural of these words). 15 points
The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick
- Read a nonfiction book and a fiction book on the same subject. 30 points Dumplin' by Julie Murphy and Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls by Jes Baker
Other books that I have read in the allowable time period, but haven't assigned a category (yet - if even possible): Furiously Happy, The Obituary Reader, A Visit From the Goon Squad
