I’ve decided that I’m going to do this challenge again for the upcoming year. The rules have evolved a little, but I’m game. I found myself reading more than 1 book each month (even though I only committed to reading 1) in 2018. However, I did stick to the schedule I created for myself, whereas, if I planned on reading Book X in Month Y earlier, I still read Book X in Month Y. What I found myself doing though was creating a second list of books, which I considered “filler” books that I would read after I read my committed book for the month.
The decision on the “filler” books came about because I found that I was really into reading “The Dark Tower” series, but didn’t want to wait 3-4 months in order to start the next one. So instead of committing myself to reading those books, they became my “filler” books and I was able to read them after I fulfilled my monthly commitment.
With that said, I’m going to remain in the Beginner level, but I’m going to take 2 Professors. I’m going to choose Professor AuthorLuv and Professor Mix-It-Up. This will allow me to continue reading the series I’m enjoying and mix in classics (like I had already intended to do).
For Professor AuthorLuv’s class, I’m choosing Stephen King as my author.
January – Wolves of the Calla (Dark Tower V) (Stephen King)
February – Song of Susannah (Dark Tower VI) (Stephen King)
March – The Dark Tower (Dark Tower VII) (Stephen King)
April – The Shining (Stephen King)
May – Pet Semetary (Stephen King)
June – Salem’s Lot (Stephen King)
For Professor Mix-It-Up’s Class:
January – Armada (Ernest Cline)
February – The Martian Chronicles (Ray Bradbury)
March – The Amber Project (JN Chaney)
April – Fire & Blood: 300 Years Before a Game of Thrones (George RR Martin)
May – The Final Day (William Forstchen)
June – Animal Farm (George Orwell)
Even though I’m in the beginner level, I’m still doubling up the number of books I committed to last year. Wish me luck!
