Tohle je můj čtenářský deník, který vyzrazuje zápletky a nemluví spisovně. Just sayin.

Birth Year Reading Challenge 2011 - Time Machine

      The Birth Year Reading Challenge is here again! Okay, it's been here for some time, but I didn't want to join because of all the books I have to read for school.. and stuff. But the steady diet of American literature needs some diversity, so there it is, and this year with a twist. It's actually a Birth Year +/- a Roll of a Dice Challenge and for me that means books from 1992.
      The rules are pretty much the same as last year and you can find them at Hotchpot Cafe, so I won't repeat them here.

      For now I'm hoping to read:

      1) P. D. James - Children of Men (I've been meaning to read this for so long! I didn't watch the film yet specifically to be able to enjoy the book.)
      2) Iain Banks - The Crow Road (It's destiny, you see. I already got the book from the library a day before I decided to roll the dice and participate. And then I'm browsing 92 books and look what is there!)
      3) Jane Smiley - A Thousand Acres (Never heard of it but it won the Pulitzer, so...)
      4) Cormac McCarthy - All the Pretty Horses (wiki says: Its romanticism (in contrast to the bleakness of McCarthy's earlier work) brought the writer much public attention. Child of God certainly was bleak enough. I'm curious.)

      I hope to add more to them and read more than last year, but we'll see... I'm starting with James right now:)

  1. Welcome, Awaris! I'm glad you are joining us and you are still in plenty of time. Your books sound interesting. I love the title of The Crow Road! I read another novel by Jane Smiley (Horse Heaven) and she is quite a good writer, so I bet you will enjoy your choice.
