Unshelved Reading Challenge Wrap up


Hosted by Becky of Becky's Book Reviews.

February 1- June 1, 2009

Read 3 books that Unshelved Bookclub has reviewed.

My reading choices with completed books linked to reviews:

The Gargoyle**** by Andrew Davidson
One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich***** by Alexander Solzhenitsyn
The Picture of Dorian Gray***** by Oscar Wilde

I do not do well on short term reading challenges it seems. I had read both Ivan Denisovich and Dorian Gray, lo these many decades ago. Thus the star ratings. But I was supposed to reread them for this challenge and did not get to them. I just can't keep up with Becky, or her challenges it seems. I did discover a new reading list of books reviewed at Unshelved Bookclub though. Thank you Becky.

Challenge incomplete: 1/3

  1. The comic at Unshelved is pretty great.

  2. I think you did well. You read more than I did, and I was the host. I think life just gets in the way more with these smaller challenges. It's *easy* to get distracted or forget about them all together. (That's what I did. I didn't finish one book for it.)

  3. Oh thank you *Becky, for admitting that. I don't feel so bad now.
