Winter Reading Challenge


Because I love these set 'em yourself challenges and because I didn't manage to finish the Fall Into Reading Challenge, I'm going to try challenging myself to the same thing I did then and will hopefully be more successful this go round. Inksplasher is hosting a Winter Reading Challenge that suits my purposes beautifully. I want to finish all of the books I currently have bookmarks in during the 9 weeks remaining for the challenge. That means I need to read:

1. Middlemarch by George Eliot (this was the big stumper for the Fall challenge and I'm still not very far into it)
2. Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser (I seem to have stalled out on this)
3. Trawler by Redmond O'Hanlon (which I am enjoying but is a slower read than I envisioned)
4. Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen (the newest addition to the in progress pile)

With luck I will manage all of these (and the others that sneak into my reading piles with no warning) by the March 19th deadline. Whee!!!!

I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
