Words on paper… Thoughts on paper… Worlds on paper…

Some time in the beginning of 2014 I thought I too, as a Goodreads member, will start a book challenge. For this challenge I set 50 books to be read in 2014. I started the whole thing rather late in February I believe and am  a bit behind schedule. But up until this very moment of today I have read 24 books, with a total of 6839 pages… 

With 4 months to go and 26 books yet to read I am doubtful I will finish my reading challenge on a positive note this year…. But who knows? Irish winter is coming and since I am off the “watch-a-lot-of-stupid-teen-series-on-laptop”-wagon at the moment, I might just fill the dark evenings with books instead of Vampire Diaries/revenge/TheOriginals/Suits etc…

Until this moment my very favorite book-experience has been by

  1. Mark Lawrence, of course, with his “Broken Empire” series- I wrote about the series in this post
  2. Caitlin Moran’s “How to build a Girl”- absolutely funny and so true to life. I will definitely read more from Caitlin; and,
  3. John Niven’s “The Second Coming” – you all, you really need to read this, be you a follower of religion or not. This book was so great I think I will read it 5 times more!!! It’s about God and Jesus and people and Satan. It’s about how everything in relation to God is NOT what the church thinks and tells us it is… Go on, you know you want to read it- you won’t regret it, I promise! 

To books! Cheers!

  1. Kadestan Sind. Tõesõna. Samas ka imetlen, et oled justkui lugemismasin 🙂
    seda viimast raamatut loeksin soovituse põhjal küll, samas oleksin selleks vist pidanud ka väljakutsest osa võtma. oleks konkreetsem motivatsioon.

    • 🙂 j2llegi- nii lihtne on raamatuid lugeda, kui need saab Amazonist otse telefoni tellida 😀 see Kindle app on nagu kokaiini triip narkomaani nina all- “ei!” on v6imatu 8elda! 😀
      Kahju, et ma oma raamatu lugemis maratoni elu algusest peale ei hakanud nn j2lgima… need numbrid oleks p2ris hullud 😀
      ja tegelt- kelle jaoks raamatud, kelle jaoks sport (Sina siis) ja kelle jaoks playstation.. 🙂

      • Selle viimase väitega- sisuline pool, mis lugemisega kaasneb, on kordades tähtsam numbrini 50 jõudmisest- ei saa kohe kuidagi mitte nõustuda 🙂

        P.s. kui aasta lõpus tahad kindlasti 50 teost kokku saada, aga aega napib, küsi abi. Mul seisab riiulis nt Peeter Oja elulooraamat, vist 4 lk oli 😛

    • Mulle ka täiega meeldib lugeda ja mulle meeldib neid challenge vastu võtta. Viimane challenge, mille vastu võtsin oli 100 books you need to read before you die. See eriti edukalt ei ole läinud, aga viimase aastaga olen küll kuskil 40 raamatut lugenud. Kahjuks mulle ei meeldi nuti-asjades raaamtuid lugeda. Parim on ikkagi vana hea paber koos raamatu lõhnaga 😀 🙂
      Edu sulle ja anna siis teada kas suutsid kõik ära lugeda, mis olid eesmärgiks seatud 🙂

        Cheers 🙂
