2007 Summer Reading Challenge


JULY 28, 2007: I have now COMPLETED this challenge! Thank you Amanda for hosting it!!

Amanda over at Amanda’s Weekly Zen has decided to host the Summer Reading Challenge part Two and has set up a special blog for readers to record their summer reading challenges, post reviews and have discussions! It all gets underway on June 1st and runs through August 1st.

I almost didn’t do this one – I’m a little “over challenged” right now! BUT, Amanda is being very generous with the rules. I can pick any books I want, I can overlap other reads – I think I can pull this off.

My goal is to read some of my book group reads (which I’ve been struggling to keep up with lately). I have two months – I’m choosing four books. Here they are:

1. The Flea Palace, by Elif Shafak (Completed June 15, 2007; to read my review click here.)
2. Slow Man, by J.M. Coetzee (Completed June 4, 2007; to read my review click here.)
3. Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck (Completed July 13, 2007; to read my review click here.)
4. Birds Without Wings, by Louis de Bernieres (Completed July 28, 2007; to read my review click here.)

    You know…I’ve been purposely staying away from A Novel Challenge because I can’t seem to stop myself from joining!! Though I’m almost done with the Spring Reading Thing and the Once Upon a Time challenge. Maybe…..
    You are such a temptress!
