Well, it's the 21st and the last day of the Fall Into Reading Challenge. Besides this one I still have 3 more challenges to wrap-up by the end of the year and only one of them is successfully completed. Sigh. Anyway, for this challenge I had hoped to read 5 books that I chose from other challenge lists in an effort to get them read. Unfortunately that didn't seem to help. The fact that I had a really slow month in November, didn't help either. Oh well, I did manage to finish 2 from my original list and I'm part-way through a third (from my extras list) that I do hope to finish this weekend.
them - Joyce Carol Oates
Snow Country - Yasunari Kawabata
Since I only finished 2 I don't think I'll discuss favourite and least favourite but I'm glad to have read both of them. Kawabata was a new-to-me author and I look forward to reading more of his work in the future. And I already have another couple of books by Joyce Carol Oates here in the stacks so I'll be reading more from her as well.
Overall, I've learned that I need to be more selective about the reading challenges I join and to not take on more than I can realistically handle. Also, choosing books for this one from the books that I'd already been putting off for many months wasn't a great idea. I should've just gone for something new that I really wanted to read, and I should've taken my trip into consideration. I never do read as much as I think I will when I'm away from home. Oh well, chalk it up to experience. Thanks for hosting, Katrina!
