I completed a reading challenge. I’m quite happy about this.
I was quite happy… until I realized I didn’t read any – none, nada, not a ONE, of the classics on my Classics 50 Challenge in the entire 12 months of 2017.
Oh well. I don’t know why this really saddens me. But it does. It makes me sad. Not one? REALLY?
Well. I already know I’m failing miserably at the Tournament of Books Long List. We know my book review posting has been pathetic since May. Yep, Ok. WE KNOW.
I know – or think I just MUST have – read one or two books this year that were published over 50 years (ok, maybe 25 years ago – let’s try that?) But I’m afraid to look.
SO, let’s be happy with KINDNESS. Let’s be happy with making a tremendous effort to not get bogged down by ‘the news’ – fake or otherwise (see? I’m already losing it) and let’s think positive fighting RIGHT humanity-minded equality-grounded love-centered thoughts and be kind to every person, every puppy. Cats, too. Why not.
And PIE. Let’s promote PIE because the World can use a PEACE.
Here are the books I read for the 2017 What’s in a Name Challenge:

I love this time of year in blog world. Stats! Pie charts! Picking THE book to be the First of the Year! Going through my books to find ones that fit the next What’s in a Name Challenge! Cheers
