2016 Reading Challenge

Postby HyruleBalverine » Tue Jan 05, 2016 8:37 pm

I saw this meme going around Facebook and decided to try it. I have a few friends doing it too, so set up a hub for it as a Facebook group. If anybody wants to do it to, feel free to join the public Facebook group and post there - or here - about the challenge and your progress.
https://m.facebook.com/?_rdr#!/groups/1 ... =bookmarks

As I'm on my phone right now, I'll edit this post later with all twelve of the book types/categories for the challenge, but for now, here's a few that I remember.

A book published this year
A book published before you were born
A book you own but haven't read
A book you'd started but gave up on
A book you can finish in a day
A book you've been meaning to read
A book recommended by your local librarian or bookseller
A book you should have read in school
A book chosen for you by your spouse, partner, sibling, child or BFF
A book that was banned at some point
A book that intimidates you
A book that you've already read at least once

It sounds interesting, the only one I will have any major problem on is remembering books I should have read at school.

The only books I can remember having to read in high school are as follows:-

Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham
1984 by George Orwell
Animal Farm by George Orwell
My Brother Jack by George Johnston
Lord of the Flies by William Golding

I do remember another book (but not the title) that is about a family that moved from Scotland to Australia in the 1950's. The first half of the book is set in Scotland and second half in Australia. I think this book had Orange in the title.

First; thanks for the edit, Oz. I just got a chance to do this and saw that you'd done it for me!

Ok, now some updates.

I've read two already. I finished A Princess of Mars, which counts for "A book published before you were born" (1917; I was born much, much later than that!)
I read, while eating dinner, Shrek, by William Steig, which counts for "A book you can finish in a day"

I've had Sun Tsu's Art of War sitting on my bookshelf for about 3 years now. So, would that count as a book published before you were born, own but haven't read and you've been meaning to read? Or is it one book for each category?
Otherwise I think the only problem I'll have completing this list is the book i should have read in school. The only one I can remember was the Catcher in the Rye, and there's no way i want to read that crap again.

I think by should have read in school is a book that was on your reading list that you didn't read, in my case I think "Day of the Triffids" is a good example as I watched the movie instead of reading the book.

Each category would require a different book. As for a book that you should have read at school, I imagine that you had about twelve years of schooling, plus any time at college/university, so is expect that at some point you either read our were supposed to read something other than Catcher In The Rye. As I'm running this here on the forums, I'll even accept a book you did a book report on in school.

fair enough. Problem though is I finished school 20 years ago and i can't remember any books I "should" have read. I'll have a chat to some of my school friends and see if they can remember. In the meantime I'm reading "The Decisive Duel - Spitfire vs Bf109" by David Isby. It's one i've been meaning to read.

I have the same problem as I finished school 30 years ago. Any other schooling I have done was at TAFE (Technical and Further Education) where the courses taught the skills needed on the job for the particular field of study. I studied Office Administration and Accounting and the only required reading for these courses, I read as theywere text books. I no longer have any of the office administration books (22 years ago) but have most of my accounting text books. The accounting books are too boring for me to want to read again.

I hear you guys; I graduated in 1997. I only remember a few books that I've read in school, or that teachers read when I was a kid. Romeo and Juliet; To Kill a Mockingbird; The Old Man and the Sea; Interstellar Pig; Earth Abides; The B.F.G.; The Book of Three... and that's all I remember from my schooling (Grades k-12, plus college).

I finished two more books (the other was a while ago, I just failed to update) so my list now stands as follows:

A book published this year
A book published before you were born (A Princess of Mars)
A book you own but haven't read
A book you'd started but gave up on (World War Z)
A book you can finish in a day (Shrek)
A book you've been meaning to read (Deathstalker)
A book recommended by your local librarian or bookseller
A book you should have read in school
A book chosen for you by your spouse, partner, sibling, child or BFF (The Gargoyle)
A book that was banned at some point
A book that intimidates you
A book that you've already read at least once
