Tea & Books Reading Challenge
I have a confession to make. I didn't exactly plan not to post an update last month. In fact I've just been too lazy to do so, and seeing how I didn't get any reading done for this challenge you can hardly blame me. So, anyone else who didn't touch a tome, I promise I won't cast you accusing glances today. I will save those for the end of November.
Anyway, the grand total of chunksters read by me is four which translates into reaching the Berry Tea Devotee level. Of course this isn't the level I've signed up for aaand I still have two more tomes to go to reach my chosen level. That's ok though. After all there are still four months to go. Easy-peasy.
The interesting question would be which books to choose! I still have three thick tomes lined up, all by Frank Schätzing, all in German, and all incredibly daunting when it comes to the page count. Suffice to say, I'm going to steer clear of Limit which is a 1.328 pages chunkster and choose between the other two which aren't exactly lightweight either, but at least they don't break the 1.000 pages barrier. What am I saying? No choosing. I need two more books, so I'll just pick the slightly thinner *haha* volumes for the finish.
Of course I'm going to assume now that you've all been better readers than yours truly and have some good news to share with all the other challenge participants! Then again, maybe all you managed to do is get a sunburn. Like I said before, I'm not going to do any finger pointing. Yet.
Feel free to share how far you progressed in the challenge! And in case you've been an idle reader yourself, don't be shy and leave a comment too. I'd feel terrible if I had been the only lazy bum this summer, you know!
