This challenge is to read the 10 oldest books on your TBR, and it runs from January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019 or for the Aussies and Europeans in the group 1 January 2019 - 31 December 2019 (I am trying to get used to your dating, so practicing it here!)

So find the books you once wanted to read but that you have neglected...and give them some love. Hopefully you will find some gems as you dig among the old books.

Dree (dreebee) | 42 comments Great another LOST!

I have found this shelf to be fabulous for moving the TBR. Mainly to weed out those books that I dont want to read anymore as I've found that I've DNFd most of my LOSTs in the past.

All good though - off the list is off the list after all!

LOST list for 2019 is:

✔️ 1. - Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal by Eric Schlosser DNF- will read another time
✔️ 2.- The Girl in a Swing by Richard Adams ★★★★1/2
✔️ 3. - Christiane F. - Mein zweites Leben by Christiane F. ★★★★1/2
✔️ 4. - David Copperfield by Charles Dickens DNF
✔️ 5. - The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test by Tom Wolfe DNF
✔️ 6. - The Thin Red Line by James Jones DNF
✔️ 7. - Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak NO RATING - see review! https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...
✔️ 8. - Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte ★★1/2
✔️ 9 - A Fortunate Life by AB Facey ★★★1/2
✔️ 10. The Three Musketeers by Alexander Dumas DNF

Thanks for noticing, Jess. I hope I did it correctly.

I know what you mean as I am in an Australian group which uses the European dating...as well as having challenges that are seasonal to Australia (reverse seasons for me)! I am always trying to figure out the dating! BUT, I am getting better. :)

I decided to clean out some of the picture books on my to-read shelf from 2008. (I was a children's librarian then.) I removed those I didn't have immediate access to, and read three of them. I changed my goal from 10 books to 13, to accommodate the extra numbers:

11. The Dangerous Alphabet by Neil Gaiman - read November 6, 2019
12. Peter Spier's Rain by Peter Spier - read November 6, 2019
13. Zooflakes ABC by Will C. Howell - read November 13, 2019

I loved Gulliver's Travels and liked The Unbearable Lightness of Being and War and Peace. I definitely recommend you get to all three of them. On the other hand, I couldn't finish Moby-Dick or, The Whale which was a complete bore to me, although I do plan on trying again some day, though not soon. A Long Fatal Love Chase is on my wishlist and I would be interested in your thoughts if you get to it.
