Hosted by: A Room of One's Own
North and South: Started this way back in January of last year. I really liked it, but for some reason got distracted by other books and before I knew it had stopped reading. I really want to give it another go this year.
Hamlet: Pretty much the same thing that happened with the book above. The thing is that once you put Shakespeare down for awhile you can't back into it without starting over. That's okay. It's a really good play (or at least the half that I read was). I'm willing to start again.
Anne of Green Gables: I really wanted to re-read this last year, but only read two chapters. This should be no big deal to finish since I already know that I love it.
Books I Started Before 2011
To add on to the challenge I thought I would list a few books I started but never finished in years before.
Fear Nothing: I keep starting this and never getting past the first two chapters. I don't understand why I keep doing this. The beginning of the book is pretty exciting I just need to keep going. I'm actually very frustrated that I haven't finished it.
The Dead Zone: I only read half of this a long long time ago. I think I was in high school. Don't know why I stopped. I think I got distracted by some other book. Every now and then I think about finishing it. I figure there is no time like the new year.
The Bell Jar: It was just one of those moments where you start a book you like it but you realize your just not in the mood for it at the moment. It's not that you won't ever be in the mood for it. Just that you want to wait for the perfect time to read it. I think the time for The Bell Jar is approaching.
My Prize: I'm not sure how to reward myself. Usually the since of accomplishment is enough. However, if I finish Fear Nothing I might reward myself with buying the graphic novel version that I saw in the Nook store.
My Manifesto: Plan to take my time reading these and just enjoy the experience.
