Seconds Challenge

Seconds Challenge
October 1 – December 31, 2007


CHALLENGE COMPLETED December 21, 2007:

Thank you, Joy, for sponsoring this fun challenge! My favorite book of the group was Disgrace, with I Am the Messenger a close second. I will definitely be reading more by both of these authors. Kiran Desai’s novel left me flat – I’ll have to think long and hard before picking up another book by her.

*********************


Joy (the sponsor of the
Non Fiction Five Challenge) is planning on sponsoring yet another great challenge. Her idea is to encourage participants to read three books by an new favorite author of whom they have previously only read one book (did that make any sense?? It is early here!). Given my addiction to challenges and in spite of my latest vow to stop joining challenges this year, I have decided to participate.  My list may change before October 1st…but here it is for now:

1. I Am The Messenger, by Markus Zusak (Completed December 17, 2007; rated 4/5; read my review)
2. Hullabaloo In The Guava Orchard, by Kiran Desai (Completed December 21, 2007; rated 3/5; read my review)
3. Disgrace, by J.M. Coetzee (Completed December 14, 2007; rated 4.5/5; read my review)
