The Book A Fortnight Update
Thought I would do some thoughts on reading and this 26 Books A Year or Book A Fortnight Challenge for 2012. You remember, the one inspired by Dave Fleet & Erin Bury I mentioned in a previous post a few weeks back.
I have read a large number of books already putting me well ahead of schedule but the bulk have been novels. The books I have read thus far are:
- Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell
- TimeRiders: Day of the Predator by Alex Scarrow
- The War That Came Early: West and East by Harry Turtledove
- TimeRiders by Alex Scarrow
- The War That Came Early: The Big Switch by Harry Turtledove
I have already begun a sixth book but I am finding myself wanting to stick to novels more and more. I can say it is because they are all parts of series which makes it more desirable to do but I really have to push myself for more mentally stimulating reading in my opinion. Problem with that, of course, is it is way, way harder! One thing I am really finding out though is the massive amount of importance there is for the more hard data kind of books, or books that make you think, it is all the more important that you find the author with the right writing style. Then again, maybe that’s just me. Have you found this yourselves?
