READING CHALLENGES: THE FINAL SPRINT

Eleven days left to the year and I have a few books left to read to complete the Read Harder and Popsugar challenges. I’ve been participating in them for 3 (or 4) years but I never cared enough to finish. I follow the one book one prompt mentality so that leaves me with 5 books to read. Here are the last few prompts:

Popsugar

A cyberpunk book

Book: The Minority Report by Philip K. Dick

Status: From the library

Will I read it?: For sure. I plan on starting it today and the copy I have is less than 50                                     pages long.

 

Read Harder

An assigned book you hated or never finished

Book: A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf

Why: My first semester of college I took a class on Modernism and we spent a week                       reading Woolf. That was also the week I was sick and did not complete the                           reading.

Status: I started the audiobook this morning

Will I read it?: Already am!

 

A Western

Book: The Round House by Louis Erdrich

Status: I’m in the middle of the secind chapter

Will I read it?: I hope I manage to finish it. It starts out pretty rough and I’m not in the                                 best headspace for a dark book. I’ll give it a go but this is the book I’m                                     most worried about.

A book of colonial or postcolonial literature

Book: Pachinko by Min Jin Lee

Status: From Overdrive

Will I read it?: I managed to snatch the ebook version so yes I will!

 

A book from Oprah’s book club

Book: The Road by Cormac McCarthy

Status: From Overdrive

Will I read it?: I have the audiobook so I’m starting it right after I finish A Room of One’s                               Own.

 

You see? Totally doable. I avoided most of these prompts for the whole year (I read a bunch of books that fit the post/colonial prompt but assigned them to another) but now that I’m getting to them they’re not so scary anymore.
