So, I had this Reading Challenge all planned out.
I’d tackle to easy ones (book in a day, book under 150 pages, re-reading Vonnegut) first, and get them out of the way. Then I’d tackle the difficult ones (political memoir, self-improvement book – neither of these are my cup of tea) later. If I didn’t finish the challenge, I’d get most of it done.
I don’t want to rush this – and make it a chore. I didn’t want this blog to be daily reports on the Reading Challenge.
I don’t know what I’m going to do about the protagonist with my profession. I don’t want to tell you what my job is, but it’s a rather uncommon one. It’ll be tough to find a book about my job. Maybe I can find a protagonist with a similar job.
I knew the book becoming a movie this year, and the book being published this year, would both be popular, so I put them on hold at the library right away. Yesterday, I was 37th in line for the former, and the latter was “On Order”, with me 4th in line.
The road trip book I put on hold was on the shelves in the library system. Meanwhile, I uploaded a less-than-150-page eBook into my eReader. I discovered an interesting-sounding celebrity autobiography, it was on the library shelves, I didn’t want to forget about it, so I put it on hold, and then suspended the hold for a month.
Meanwhile, I’m making my way through a 600+ page book.
That was the plan. It seemed that books would be evenly paced.
Yesterday, the road trip book came in. It was great timing. I stopped by the library on my way home and picked it up.
Today, I received a notification from the library. That book becoming a movie this year – the one with 36 people in line ahead of me – had come in. (Also today, Phillip asked me to stop by the library to pick up a hold of his. Weird timing.)
So, now I have three books, and one eBook, going.
