Wreade1872 | 763 comments So this is my new plan, moving on from my League of Extraordinary Gentlemen list. This isn't technically a challenge but i thought it might be a good idea to track it for a year or so and see how its working. I've also come up with some long term projects and computer game style Achievements to keep things interesting.

Anyway, the one flaw with my last reading list was that when i reread anything i felt guilty about the fact it wasn't new and when i'm reading new stuff i feel annoyed i'm not getting to reread some of the great things i've discivered over the years.
So what i needed was a system to take away any sense of personal respondsibility ;) .

I wanted something simple but flexible, something structured but which would give the illusion of self determination :P, so i came up with this, my 231_System.

I will read 2 OR 3 new books (depending on mood) and then 1 reread.

I like it its pithy :) . Might be a few too many rereads longterm but we'll see. Havn't decided whether graphic novels and short story collections should count, might be a case by case basis for those.

Side Projects:
I've noticed that all my shelves in the 20th century are pretty even except for the 1940's and to a lesser extent the 70's. So i'm going to level them out, starting with the 40's, I've thrown together a 1940s-Maybes list, suggestions welcome.

I've also decided to read One book by each author (about 90 items) from those 130 free ebooks hosted by canadas Merril Collection.
"The Merril Collection of Science Fiction, Speculation and Fantasy is a non-circulating research collection of over 80,000 items of science fiction, fantasy and speculative fiction, as well as magic realism, experimental writing and some materials in 'fringe' areas such as parapsychology, UFOs, Atlantean legends etc."

Possible Achievements 2019:
WAR-OF-WORDS: Read 5 books from the 1940s.
DEJA-VIEW: Complete 4000 pages of Rereads.
SEQUELITIS: Read 10 books in series you've already started.

Wreade1872 | 763 comments Retroactively setting the achievements to the start of the year i found i'd already completed the CENTURY-SWEEP so i added the BICENTENNIAL-SWEEP, i probably should have gone with a SESQUICENTENNIAL-SWEEP, might be more achievable, but much harder to spell ;) .

Wreade1872 | 763 comments Achievement Unlocked WORDPLAY: Attempt to defeat 10 gamebooks.

The Shamutanti Hills (Fighting Fantasy Sorcery!, #1) by Steve Jackson Kharé - Cityport of Traps (Fighting Fantasy Sorcery!, #2) by Steve Jackson The Seven Serpents (Fighting Fantasy Sorcery!, #3) by Steve Jackson The Crown of Kings (Fighting Fantasy Sorcery!, #4) by Steve Jackson Green Blood by Mark Smith
Star Strider (Fighting Fantasy, #27) by Luke Sharp The Citadel of Chaos (Fighting Fantasy, #2) by Steve Jackson Armies of Death (Fighting Fantasy Reissues 1, #14) by Ian Livingstone Starship Traveller (Fighting Fantasy, Reissues 1, #4) by Steve Jackson Fighting Fantasy The Gates of Death by Charlie Higson
A quick summary of how this went.
Lost my weapon and had to fight a manticore barehanded, vomited myself to death in a sewer, killed by snake, dropped from a height by bird-men, buried alive by a tree (i mean the tree buried me alive, not i was buried alive next to a tree, although the latter is also true ;) ), left tied up and out of time, fell in a pit after murdering some children (those facts weren't related, except maybe karmicly :P, sorry orc babies!), eaten by a hag, crushed by a blackhole and butchered by a gang of thieves (six of them and i was unarmed :( ).

I think as a child it was more difficult to read and therefore felt longer :) . It didn't help that i died super quick in at least 5 of them.
The last one i read is actually pretty new, i guess everything is getting a revival these days. A fun wander down memory lane.

[1230s*, 1510s, 1820s, 1840s, 1890s, 1910s, 1920s, 1930s, 1950s, 1980s**]

*A modern book but it seems a pretty straight forward version of the old myths first written down in the 1200s so thats what i'm counting it as.
**I read 9 gamebooks from the 1980's, so if you add them up i think it works as one normal book ;) .

Wreade1872 | 763 comments 231 System - Apr-May 2019
System basis, I will read 2 OR 3 new books (depending on mood) and then 1 reread.

I don't generally deem gamebooks, short story collections or graphic novels to be part of my primary reading; which is a pity because thats what most of my time has been spent on in the last couple of months :P .

Wreade1872 | 763 comments Achievement Unlocked REAL-FICTION: Read 5 non-fiction books.
The Greek Myths by Robert Graves [3/5]; Planetarium (Welcome to the Museum) by Raman Prinja [4/5]; The Martyrdom of Man by William Winwood Reade review[5/5]; The Prince by Niccolò Machiavelli [4/5]; Theatre of the World The Maps That Made History by Thomas Reinertsen Berg review[4/5];

I might be cheating a bit using the Greek Myths as non-fiction, but it does have extensive notes and interpretations so i'm counting it, unlike a book of norse myths i read which i'm counting as only fiction.

Wreade1872 | 763 comments After finishing my League of Extraordinary Gentlemen list earlier this year this was by far the largest target left on my to-do list, so really glad to have finished it.
I read a lot of short stories as part of that League list so had accumulated a lot of partially-read collections.
I didn't complete them all however, started with about 30 but while i like to finish what i start i'm not pathological enough to read 400 pages more when i've only finished 1 short story in that collection etc. so i went through the list culling as many as my conscious would let me.
I also shrunk some collections, for example i had the complete Edgar Allan Poe but since i was never going to finish all that i replaced it with a shorter collection that i could complete, same with Irving, Borges and maybe a few others.
Anyway by hook or by crook this one's done now :), partially-read-collections shelf deleted.

message 14: by Wreade1872 (new)

Wreade1872 | 763 comments I quite like having written reviews, however the actual writing part requires some effort by my lazy self, so a little extra motivation is good.
I also set this to 40 and usually read around 60 items a year so it still leaves me some wiggle room :) .
