Given my ability to find such books, I have decided to incorporate Eragon by Christopher Paolini and Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman into the January-April portion of my Annual Goal.
I've started Eragon and, while I'll definitely finish it, there are some things that I'm not enjoying. More on this later.
Well, the weekend has come and gone and, while I’m a little closer to the end of Memories of Ice, there’s still a long way to go.
I’m heartened, however, by the fact that I’ve only got a little more than a quarter of the book to go, I’ve finished five books already this year, this is the longest book remaining before the end of April, and as of right now, I’m only 3 days past my original minigoal.
Given these things, I will officially revise my minigoal to Thursday, January 26 (happy birthday, dad). I think this is reasonable, even generous, and I will have 6 books done by the end of January, which is two ahead of schedule. (I believe I can finish Eragon and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by then as well, which would actually make it 8 books, but whatever).
I’m trying to decide about the nature of my posts. Should I keep plot-points out to avoid ruining the books for people who haven’t yet read them or should I just state that I’m going to put the plot points in and have a section for them at the end of the post?
What do you think, bloggers?
If nothing comes up in the mean-time or in-between time, I’ll blog atcha on Thursday.
