Here we go again!!
Rules are all the same as before: 100 books and 1 year to read them all. You can look here http://nerdfighters.ning.com/forum/topics/100-book-challenge-2011-1 if you want more guidelines.
Last year I pretty much gave up at 10 books because I fell really behind on schoolwork and such, but this year I'm sticking with it! I hope you are all up for it as well!
:D Good luck and DFTBA!
Oh I might be up to this impressive challenge. Book one was The fault in our stars!
Haha, what a great book to start the year with! I started mine with Let It Snow. :)
Thats what I started mine with too! Great minds think alike!
that was my first book as well.
started mine with city of bones
I was thinking of doing something like this on my own. Now, I have a purpose. Time to start tomorrow with Will Grayson, Will Grayson.
I started with Will Grayson, Will Grayson too! It was wonderful, only 99 more to go.
This is exactly the kind of challenge I need :) Bring it on! Think I'm going to start with The Pursuit of Love by Nancy Mitford.
Does anybody have any suggestions? For instance, heres some of the books that I really want to read in the next year:
Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
The Rights of Man by Tom Paine
The Social Contract by Jean Jaques Rousseau
The Wisdom of the Desert by Thomas Merton
Le comte de Monte-Cristo by Dumas
Hesse is ALWAYS good, but there are better than Siddhartha. Beneath The Wheel, Rosshalde, Demian, etc. are all masterful. Burgess is great too, but I never liked A Clockwork Orange, I was more for Enderby's escapades. Merton is Merton, and should be read by anyone interested in contemplation, meditation and the big R. If you end up liking Dumas, read The Club Dumas by Arturo Perez Reverte. Amazing book.
I suggest The Book Thief!! That book is quite possibly my favorite book of all time. That should definetly be on your list if you haven't read it before. :)
