When I first joined the TBR Challenge yahoo group last year, I thought I would be finished this challenge in six months. Turns out, it is the only one that I did not finish. Around September, I lost interest in the books that were left on my list. I would still like to read them. Just not right now. But, I did come close, completing 10 out of my 12 books (2 were alternate selections).
I joined again for 2008, and gave myself more alternate choices, so we will see what happens this year! (Sorry for the lack of links, I am having some difficulties linking things this morning)
Things fall Apart - Chinua Achebe
Foucault's Pendulum - Umberto Eco
Nickel and Dimed - Barbara Ehrenreich
I, Rigoberta Menchu
Under the Banner of Heaven - Jon Krakauer
Hilda and Pearl - Alice Mattison
Survival in Auschwitz - Primo Levi
To the Lighthouse - Virginia Woolfe
Bee Season - Myla Goldberg
Fall On Your Knees - Ann-Marie MacDonald
The best book: Things Fall Apart.
What book could I have done without: I originally had The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand on this list, and it was the only book in 2007 I did not finish. I also did not like Bee Season by Myla Goldberg.
What did you learn -- about anything -- through this challenge? I might not be the best at completing year-long challenges!
