Book Challenge 2019: You Can Do!

Don’t be intimidated! Even if you read only one book, but that’s more than
last year, it means new memories and satisfaction!

1. Make a post, preferably stating a goal of how many books you want to read this year.
2. Edit that post as you read throughout the year, slowly adding to the list of books you've read. Sorting the list by month is recommended.
3. Don't create additional posts, just keep editing your original post. Graphic novels count as .25 (in other words, 4 graphic novels = one book)

Last year I set a goal of one book - which is more than I read in years, and I achieved it and really enjoyed it, so hopefully will read more...

So this year... I'll set a goal of 3 books!



[January update] Following on from the videogame theme of the book I read last year, I read Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. I really enjoyed ig and it was interesting to see just how different it was from the film.



I forgot my [February update], which was that i read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury... a piece of classic science fiction, that, strangely for someone who rarely reads books, is all about the importance of books... anyhow, I'm not sure I like his rambling stream of consciousness style. It was interesting to see what bits of future foretelling he wrote about have come to pass...
