It's time again (so soon, oh my) for another update in this challenge and seeing how we've officially reached halftime, no further fooling and/or lazing around, my dears!
While I didn't expect it, I am happy to announce that I managed to finish two mega-tomes (as a reminder, books with 1.200+ pages qualify for two books) which means I have already reached the Berry Tea Devotee level I signed up for. The next step? An upgrade, obviously. I'm not heavily into fruit tea and really more of a Earl Grey Aficionado anyway.
Now, which books did I tackle?
It (Stephen King)
Limit (Frank Schätzing)
The sad thing about these two chunksters is how I didn't really enjoyed either one, but mainly kept on drudging through for the sake of this challenge. While I still have a number of big books on my reading piles I am almost hesitant to pick up the next one, and to be on the safe side I will steer clear of the real fat bricks and instead hunt down those in the 650+ range before considering anything even remotely around 1.000 pages. Who could blame me?
Curious about who else is participating in the challenge? Go here.
Updates for the challenge will be posted regularly on Sundays near the end/beginning of a month and the next date will be August 4th.
How many tomes did you plow through during the first six months? Have you reached your chosen level yet? Then how about an upgrade? Comment away!
