100 books in 1 year. A challenge.

Published August 4, 2013 by claire2903

Well after reading a posr on the infamous facebook from one of my favourite authors, Pat Rothfuss, I decided I need to read more!
I got 6 of 100 of the best fantasy book.
Shameful I know. Needless to say I have read substantionaly more than 6 fantasy books, it just appears ive have been reading the wrong ones!
So as apart of the 100 things to do to become a better writer list (I will find links to the 100 books and 100 things to do and post in comments or edit the post and drop them in at the bottom)
I have decided to read 100 per year. I am also coupling this with read all the books on a certain list, roughly over 100 books. The link to this list is on the 100 things to do list.

It is advised that challenging someone to a small competition with it, and this has not only sparked the love of stories inside me but the gambler, competitive need to win and excited learner.

So I have challenged the one person who could read more books, possibly, than me in a year. My mother.

We started on the first of August this year and will finish on first of August next year.

I have started with
Feast for Crows – G R R Martin.
I know I should have read this by now but I havent, so a good choice I think.

Mother has started with
Oath of Fealty – Elizabeth Moon. Good set of books and part of the Paksennarion books.

This evening I have finished Feast for Crows and I have started
Tigana – Guy G Kay.

We have to read roughly 2 books a week, so wish us luck 🙂

I will update as often as I can on this challenge. Probably with the names of books read this month in this posts comments then a re cap and musing near the beginning of each month 🙂
