Tea & Books Reading Challenge
Me, as designated head tea brewer in this challenge have now read the third tome for this challenge. This time I went for a book in the German language. Don't be shocked now! German is my mother tongue, and I've been neglecting reading in favor of books in their original English version this past year. All despite the fact that I've got plenty of German novels in my TBR piles. Well, let's just say it comes in quite handy that I own several 700+ pages books from German authors, so obviously I couldn't even go for the English version if I wanted to.
That said, these are the books I read so far ...
The Passage (Justin Cronin)
Under The Dome (Stephen King)
Ausgebrannt (Andreas Eschbach)
This means I'm half way to my chosen Earl Grey Aficionado level. Next book I've got lined up is once again by German author Andreas Eschbach with the title Eine Billion Dollar. This one is actually the heavier one with almost 900 pages though the page count won't distract me while reading due to the fact that instead of page numbers there's sort of a money countdown up to those one billion dollars. I hope to get that one read in June. Never hurts to be a step ahead with those intimidatingly thick books, youldn't you agree?
Five months have passed and I know many of you've been doing plenty of reading for this challenge, while a selected few still need to get into second gear. Let's just say, if you haven't even got started now, it's time to get a move on. Seriously. Don't make me get all preachy now ... but I will if the carrot doesn't work!
Fess up, folks! How are you faring so far? Ready for an upgrade? Ready to give up? Let me know.
