I love book challenges. They keep me on my toes and sometimes I find books I might not otherwise have read.
I am only doing two challenges in 2010. Library school and Life are challenging enough, but I am almost done with the name challenge! Here is the updated list:
K-Keep Sweet by Greene (done)
R- The Red Tree by Kiernan (done)
I- Incarceron by Fisher (done)
S- Scorch Trials by Dashner (not until October)
T-The Tale of Halcyon Crane by Webb (done)
I-Inside Out-Snyder (done)
E-Eighty Four Charing Cross Road by Hanff (done)
I am just waiting on Mr. Daschner, and then I am finished!
My other challenge is the YA through the Decades and that is well underway. With my YA Lit class this quarter, I will be pounding out the list. The only book that was not on the syllabus was Feed by Anderson. I just finished that two weeks ago-I had a heck of a time getting into it, but once I did, I thought it was really good. Titus was not one of my favorite characters, but given the setting, how could he have been? I am glad we do not live in that world, but now I fear we are heading in that direction (which, I am sure, was the point of the book).
Just a quick blurb while I rant about the cost of textbooks, as I just uploaded the syllabus for my management course, and the first text book is brand new (2010) and runs about 120 bucks!
There, I feel a little bit better now. Now I am off to Chegg.
