With three months into the year we all should be well on our way in this challenge. From brushing off the dust from those heavy tomes on our shelves (January) to sorting through the books we might want to read (February) straight to opening and reading the first book for the challenge (March) I hope to hear some good news from you all - news as in you've finished (at least) your first tome in this challenge!
As to myself, I'm happy to announce that after having read my first book back in January, I managed to read my second one in March. After the rather disappointing read of The Passage (Justin Cronin) I read Under The Dome (Stephen King) which proved to be ... uhm, a long book indeed. But seriously, while I loved the premise and the intriguing reason for why the dome was there, the novel as such has its good and bad sides, all in all an average read, so I'm not complaining.
Still four books to go and no, I haven't quite made my mind up yet which ones to tackle. Seeing how I haven't read a single book in German this year (despite making this a priority in my bookish New Year's resolutions) I will probably go for some Andreas Eschbach or Frank Schätzing. Not sure which ones as I've got several unread books by them, but with a little bit of will power I might manage to decide and read one this month.
I know there are some of you who are already way ahead in this challenge and I've had the first person volunteering for an upgrade of their level too a week or two ago. No pressure, of course, but if you feel like you're on a roll and want to level up, just let me know!
And now, comment away with how you're doing so far! And don't be shy in case you haven't even touched your first tome, especially if you went for Chamomile Lover, you've still got plenty of time. In case you went for Sencha Connoisseur you might want to get a move on though.
