2016 Reading Plans:

Besides reading at least 12 books that I currently own, I plan to participate in as many monthly YLTO challenges as my schedule allows. I hope that will also help me to knock off my list some of the unread books that I own.

Lisa's 2016 TBR Personal Whittler Challenge:

Books Completed to Date:

1. The Fifth Gospel (Read in Jan; Noting that I read 61 pages out of 431 during Dec 2015)

2. Tears of the Giraffe (Read in Jan)

3. The Song of the Lark (Read in Jan/DNF)

4. Ready Player One (Read in Feb)

5. Rebecca (Read in Feb)

6. The Last Runaway (Read in Feb)







(All books counted owned prior to January 2016)

Thanks Stephanie! So glad to hear you enjoyed it. I bought it on sale and hope to get to it someday. *Sigh*

Ha!! I had planned to focus on getting through some of these wonderful books I bought on sale during the past two years but am not doing a very good job of it so far. I hope some of the upcoming monthly challenges will allow me to knock some of these off my tbr.

Tasha I didn't notice that they were bee books!

Cherie (crobins0) | 19984 comments What is a bee book?

I noticed that you said you DNF The Song of the Lark. too slow? I listened to it on audio and really enjoyed the story. there were a few places it dragged, but I was doing yard work while I listened and it helped. I think it could have been shorter but I was determined to find out what happened to the MC. Even though I owned My Ántonia, I listened to the audio. I really liked that one!

Tasha It's from another group we are in. It's called Busy as a Bee so we just call it bee or bees for short. :)

Cherie- Yes, The Song of the Lark was too slow and I really didn't feel any connection to the characters. Many years ago, I recall reading and enjoying My Antonia. Since I don't remember most of the details from that one, I do plan to read it at some point. Hoping I like it the second time around. :)

Also, as Tasha mentioned a "Bee" book is for another group that Tasha and I belong to.
