Completed 2011 Reading Challenge!

I’m so happy I already completed 1 of my 6 Reading Challenges for 2011!

 

My own challenge:

Books Published in The First Years of My Life
Kid level : 5 books

Here are the 5 books I read:

– 1966: The Crying Of Lot 49, by Thomas Pynchon
– 1967: Company for Henry, by Wodehouse
– 1968: Do Butlers Burgle Bankers, by Wodehouse
– 1969: Edible Woman, by Margaret Atwood
– 1970: Bluest Eye, by Toni Morrison

My favorite is Do Butlers Burgle Bankers, very funny and theatrical.

The one I liked less is The Crying of Lot 49, so obscure.

I may add years to this challenge, in case I run into books written in 1971, etc, but I’ll try first to stick to my other challenges and my 2010 TBR list.

It’s fun to achieve a Challenge, just disappointed no one seemed too interested to join, but my blog was not known at all when I launched it.

Also, I have not figured out yet how to add a Mr Linky to my wordpress blog, so that makes things more complicated. Not even sure it’s possible. For next year, I may open a blogger page just for that challenge, to be able to use Linky, though there was a rumor it was no longer free. We’ll see.
