50 Book Pledge Update
Because why would anyone limit themselves to only one challenge at a time?
I pledged to read 50 books in 2015, just finished #18 tonight!
My bookshelf thus far:
Highlights since my last update:
The High Road was the lone 5 star from books #8-18. It’s a shame its lead character, Angus McLintock, is fictitious – he’d be the ideal politician!
Book #19 may end up being 5 star material (The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes) once I finish the last couple of cases.
There weren’t any misses either, all were quite readable. Though there’s some selection bias I suppose as unlike the 1001 project, I don’t have to pick from a specific list.
If I had to select a top 5 of the year to date….
5. Clive Veroni, Spin
4. Gord Downie, Coke Machine Glow. Speaking of biases, my recency bias is out of control here, I’ve got his accompanying solo album playing as I type!
3. Terry Fallis, The High Road
2. Jocelyn Saucier, And the Birds Rained Down
1. Margaret Atwood, Oryx and Crake
I can’t say all these books would have qualified for Evastalker’s neat TBR20 project but I’m pleased to report a couple of these were already owned and now finally read!
I always enjoy playlist posts (like Apple Pie and Napalm’s recent one), I find it really interesting hearing about what fellow bloggers think is worth hearing, seeing, or reading.
Which of course leads me to my final question: what are you reading these days?
