Reading Challenge


Bullet; Red Updates as for 2015-04-03. Short stories collection "The Listerdale Mystery" by Agatha Christie (read it in Lithuanian). It was the first time for me to read short stories by Agatha Christie. This time I found something new - a romantic shade in the mystery.

Updates as for 2015-03-02. I finished another book. It was very short, only 60 something pages. I was surprised to find that it is about the city I live in (but the setting is like 90 years ago). Does it count as my hometown? Let's say yes for this time :D The book is called "Klubas nepatenkintų žmonomis", author - Justas Pilyponis.

Updates as for 2015-02-18. Yesterday I finished a book w00t!  It's "Šiąnakt aš miegosiu prie sienos" by Giedra Radvilavičiūtė (English translation of the tittle is in the end of journal). It was quite interesting to read short stories, perfect for reading in the evening just before falling asleep.

I stole this from :icondiluculi:. I hope she doesn't mind Giggle
But I am not going to read all of these books in one year. For me it is more like lifetime goal. I just need this to motivate myself into reading something not usual for me Nod

If the same book fits more than one category, I will write it at all of them. (No, it's not cheating in order to finish challenge faster. At least I don't consider it as this :D)

Some explanation about book titles which are in Lithuanian:
"Šiąnakt aš miegosiu prie sienos" by Giedra Radvilavičiūtė could be translated something like "Tonight I Am Sleeping at the Wall-Side of the Bed".
"Klubas nepatenkintų žmonomis" by Justas Pilyponis --> "The club for those, who are not satisfied with their wives"

Goodreads Reading Challenge


But I have also set up a more realistic reading challenge at Goodreads. Here I wish to read 10 books in 2015.
www.goodreads.com/challenges/3…

Knygų iššūkis


And I also participate in Lithuanian initiative Knygų iššūkis (Challenge of Books). Every participant has to make a list of 12 books (+ 2 alternatives) to read in a year.
At first I participated in 2013 and read 8 books.
Last year I completed 10 books.
So I hope this year will be even better La la la la
