Where Fiction and Reality Meet

From The Stacks

I gave up on the From the Stacks challenge after book 4. I have a hard time sticking to what I say I’m going to read, if I plan it out in advance.

Anyway, as a fake round-up, I did end up reading The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien, Celtika by Robert Holdstock, North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell, and Watership Down by Richard Adams. I lost interest Fairies at Work and Play by Geoffrey Hodson before I had even started it.

    I gave up in the same place.

    I gave up after book three. Well, I didn’t intentionally give up, it’s just that I kept grabbing stacks of books from my local library’s shelves each week and I always read books with due dates first. I feel much better that I am in such good company.

    It seems that very few people actually finished this challenge. That kind of makes me sad, but at the same time makes me happy that I’m not the only one.

    I surprised myself by finishing. I read books according to my mood so I didn’t think I would be able to get myself to read books off a list.
