52 Book Challenge - Week 26

It's Week 26 of the 52 Book Reading Challenge, which means we are now half-way through the year. I'll pause for a moment while you hyperventilate.

Are you reconciled with the inexorable passage of time? Good.

Now, this week's challenge is one you can work out on your own, but the second half of the year (i.e., next week) kicks off with a doozy, so we'll give you some ideas for that one, too.

The current challenge is:

26.  A book you were supposed to read in school but haven’t yet.

Look, only you know what homework you skipped in school, so this is on you. If you were the kind of person who read everything and then some, then ask other people for suggestions of books they were supposed to read, but didn't. Or, pick a book everyone else was reading that you decided was not for you. Hopefully you'll come up with something new and exciting.

Next week's challenge will take some planning:

27. A book with a character with your first name.

Some people have easy names, like "Jane" or "Emma" or "Tom", but for those of us who don't have a title character with a shared name, you'll have to get creative. Try using looking up your name in Wikipedia to see the list of fictional characters (like this, if your name happened to be Algernon). Or you could try a Google search like this: (Gwendolen AROUND character) - if your name happens to be Gwendolen.

Good luck, and hopefully you don't end up hating your literary doppelganger.
