Brown Ajah Book Challenge 2019

Recommended Posts

Stack-of-books-great-education-1000x520.

 

 

an ancient means of passing along history, knowledge, entertainment, reading has been with us debate-ably since we first drew images on cave walls. which are still being read to this day. 

 

clearly all of us here are here because we're fans of the written word. it is after all what this whole site is based on. and here in the Brown Ajah we especially love books and all they can hold. their promise of new insights, new worlds, new life and love the power that a page can hold. the wonder it can bring into our lives. the prodding of our minds and spirits that a new book inevitably holds. 

 

so yearly we do the book challenge. and here it is bright and shiny for the new year. 

 

how many books do you plan on reading? how many do you hope to read? do you plan on winging it? any and every answer to those questions is welcomed! 

 

post below that you're joining the challenge. what your personal goals are. and lets get going! 

 

 

also feel free to change your goals as needed. to jump in late or on time or whenever the heck you want. the point is to read, the point is to push yourself in your reading. the point is to enjoy a year of books.

I'm a very fast reader and so my goal this year isn't to read more, but savor more.  When I listened instead of read the WoT last year, it was weird realizing how much I had overlooked when I had first read the series years ago. 

 

So, I've listened to two so far--Words of Radiance and Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson.  I'm now taking a turn away from fantasy to my other favorite genre, historical fiction, and have started listening to Master and Commander by Patrick O'Brian.

Lol I was too discouraged last year to join this thread again, but I guess I'm at the point where I've made enough progress on my reading that I feel like I can join. 

 

I set my goal this year again at 20 books. I did that last year too, but I barely read anything, so it was definitely too high then. 

 

This year I have gotten a good chunk of the way down my list, so here's where I'm at:

 

1. The Fever Tree - Jennifer McVeigh

2. Born a Crime - Trevor Noah

3. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian - Sherman Alexie

4. Lazarus - Lars Kepler

5. Formørkelsen - Karin Fossum

6. The Power - Naomi Alderman

7. The Golden Compass - Philip Pullman

8. The Nightingale - Kristin Hannah

9. The Wedding Gift - Marlen Suyapa Bodden

10. If We Were Villains - M.L. Rio

11. Shatter me - Tahereh Mafi

12. City of Ghosts - Victoria Schwab

13. The Subtle Knife - Philip Pullman

14. The Dressmaker's Secret - Charlotte Betts

15. The Great Hunt (reread) - Robert Jordan

16. Harpiks - Ane Riel

 

Currently reading: 

The Dragon Reborn - Robert Jordan

Paperweight - Meg Haston

Haven't tried this in awhile, but might as well give it a go. Set something very low so that I can actually make it: 20 books.

So far (not in this order, just what I remember):

1.) Blackwood Farm - Anne Rice

2.) Middlesex - Jeffrey Eugenides
3.) Interview with the Vampire - Anne Rice

4.) Battlefield Earth - L. Ron Hubbard
5.) Hannibal - Thomas Harris
6.) The Tale of the Body Thief - Anne Rice

7.) The Wasp Factory - Iain Banks

8.) Thus Spake Zarathustra - Friedrich Nietzsche

9.) IN PROGRESS: Archaeology of Violence - Pierre Clastres

10.) IN PROGRESS: Violin - Anne Rice
11.) IN PROGRESS: The Anti-Witch - Jeanne Favret-Saada

Some of these are re-reads, though I hadn't read them for years or over a year. There might also be more I am not remembering - will have to check for loose books later on.

Recently I finished A Clash of Kings, by George R. R. Martin; The Path of Daggers, by Robert Jordan, and A Wanted Man, by Lee Child.

 

I'm currently in the midst of:

  • Pyramids, by Terry Pratchett
  • The Burglar Who Painted Like Mondrian, by Lawrence Block (re-read)
  • Master and Commander, by Patrick O'Brien

I'm listening to Master and Commander on audiobook in my car, but sometimes my attention wanders. When he gets deep into descriptions about the rigging of his ships, I get bogged down in the details.

 

So I bought a hard copy of the book, and I'm going to start what I expect will be a multi-year project. I'll slowly read it line by line, looking up every term I don't know, until I can understand everything as the author intended. Places, persons (real or otherwise), ships of the line, I want to know them all.

We should do one of these for 2020! Even if it is not just books but any new subject/topic you are interested in learning more about - as that way, othr DM members might already have some cool resources in mind for them :) Or I am ALWAYS finding new podcasts about fascinating subjects so would be cool to have somewhere to share them too.

for the study thing thats what the study hall is for. 

 

though that raises a good idea, a resources thread. for references and helpful links. why don't you start one?
