Reading Challenge


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)

New Next book on my list was J. K. Rowling "The Casual Vacancy". I read it in Lithuanian and so I wondered a little bit about the names of characters. They sounded pretty strange and it took me some time to get used to them and to remember who is who. At first the book wasn't very interesting, but in the end I wasn't able to put it down until I finish it.

Some explanation about book titles which are in Lithuanian:
Bullet; Blue "Šiąnakt aš miegosiu prie sienos" by Giedra Radvilavičiūtė could be translated something like "Tonight I Am Sleeping at the Wall-Side of the Bed".
Bullet; Blue "Klubas nepatenkintų žmonomis" by Justas Pilyponis --> "The club for those, who are not satisfied with their wives".
Bullet; Blue "Mano nuostabioji drabužių spinta" by Claudia Piras and Bernhard Roetzel --> "My wonderful wardrobe". Original German title: "Mein wunderbarer kleiderschank".

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
