I’m Not Making My Reading Challenge, Am I?

Earlier this year, I set my reading challenge at 30 books on Goodreads.  I’m stuck at 12 books at the moment.  Only 3 months to go and 18 books to go.  Not going to happen!

As it stands, I’m almost finished A Storm of Swords, but I have a rather long book after to read.  Then it’s a bunch of mostly shorter books.  However, I don’t think I’ll make 18 books.  But let’s look at what I’ve got coming up.

For paperback/print books, I have the following:

  • The Seeds of Earth, by Michael Cobley.  It’s a bit long.
  • So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish, by Douglas Adams.  It’s quick.
  • 3001: The Final Odyssey, by Arthur C. Clarke.  Another short one.
  • Homeland, by R. A. Salvatore.  This isn’t that long.
  • Star Trek: Nemesis, by J. M. Dillard.  This should be quick, too.
  • Deadhouse Gates, by Steven Erikson.  Long!
  • Julius Caesar, by William Shakespeare.  This is pretty short.
  • The Neutronium Alchemist, by Peter F. Hamilton.  This is pretty long.

So, you see what I’ve got to read.  The next 8 books consist of 3 long ones, 4 short ones, and a medium-ish one.

I also have e-books to read, but I don’t get through them as quickly, unless they’re short.  It should take me long to read the one I’m on at the moment, though.  I also have a couple art books by Robert Bateman to read, and they are quick to read.

I do have something else, though. My daughter has the full Beatrix Potter set.  They’re all very short books.  I could read them.
