Still thinking....

....about this book challenge!! I need to go and sit in Borders and make a good list of what I want to read, or I can simply sit at my computer and rummage around LibraryThing! The trouble is that I like to know what a book is about before I commit to it and need to read the blurb on the back, so LibraryThing may not be the place to look!

Anyway, I am slowly coming up with possible categories that I feel that I can get to grips with!

How about the following:
  • Australia (any book about or from Australia)
  • Award winners (from the Booker to the Pulitzer!)
  • Biographies (I am just nosy!)
  • Romance (gotta have that in there somewhere!)
  • Children and Young Adults books
  • Classics that I should have read years ago!
  • History (including historical novels!)
  • Re-reads cos I love them so much!
I could keep going, but those are the categories that are getting (and holding!) my attention at the moment. Now, I need to fill those categories with eight books each - I am trying not to have any overlap! Can I really commit myself to 64 books, I know that I can certainly read that many, but still, the thought of saying I will read this book and that book and that one too...still makes me hesitate!!

I think that the list above is quite a nice one - I will let you all know what I am going to put in each section as soon as I know!!

If I'm not already swarmed with reading for my studies, I'd've not hesitate to join in the fun. But alas...
