The Completionist Reading Challenge

20150423_155522

The above is a stack of books once on my shelf that I’d started reading but have yet to finish.  To be honest, I expected the stack to be taller.

Inspired by Nadine Ducca’s resolution this year, I’ve decided by the end of the year all the books here will be finished.  The books are:

  • Isaac Asimov’s Prelude to Foundation
  • Marie Brennan’s The Tropic of Serpents (Book 2 in Lady Trent’s memoirs)
  • Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
  • Bram Stoker’s Dracula
  • Carl Sagan’s Contact
  • David Hadju’s The Ten-Cent Plague: The Great Comic Book Scare And How It Changed America
  • Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin’s American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer
  • Michael Moorcock’s The Dancers at the End of Time

I’m late in posting this entry, because I’ve already finished one of the books.

It’s much shorter than Nadine’s list of books and my previous reading resolutions.  This is my attempt at setting more reasonable goals.  I am not a fast reader, as as you can see it’s almost May and I’ve only finished one book on the list.  For most of these it’s been long enough that I will have to start over from the beginning rather than pick up where I left off.

I’ll post my thoughts as I finish each book on this blog and/or Goodreads.
