Josephine aka knotbox does ROOT 2017 (for the first time!)
Join LibraryThing to post.
Hello there, I'm setting a modest goal:
I'm not including ebooks and digital audiobooks in my challenge.
z i p - z i l c h - n a d a
See my 75 books challenge: https://www.librarything.com/topic/245331
I'm pretty active on instagram if you want to follow my book/animal exploits: www.instagram.com/exmatria
20. March 2017 - I've read 23 books, and own approximately 1,138 physical books. I've been chugging along for my 75 books challenge, but none were old books. (Except the one book that was a 're-read'.) Yeesh.
However, my next planned read is A Passage to India which is a ROOT! Yay!
Hi, welcome Josephine and happy ROOTing!
Look forward to hearing what you think of A Passage to India. I started reading it after seeing the movie - in 1984 - but lost motivation to finish it. I was your age then, yikes!
>3 floremolla: I just made my friend read it for some reason, so I'm sure to finish it. I'm already a fan of Forster though, so I'm reasonably sure I'll enjoy *something* about it. Have you read any of his other books?
Thanks for the the well wishes, as well. :D
>4 knotbox: no - I liked sci-fi and contemporary fiction in my youth and read very little classics or period literature. I'm now realising I missed a trick there!
Henry James' The Ambassadors is on my TBR list and I've heard that E M Forster's Where Angels Fear to Tread has a similar premise so I might like to read both for comparison - have you read either?
>1 knotbox: Welcome to the group! I hope you find it as motivating as I have (and not as enabling!!).
Josephine - glad you're here! Hope we can help you whittle away at your ROOTS!
>5 floremolla: I have not, and I'm not a very big fan of James after reading The Turning of the Screw in high school. In retrospect, I think I'd like that book more *now*. I still prefer sci-fi and fantasy. :)
>6 Jackie_K: >7 cyderry: Thanks, Chèli & Jackie ! I hope so, too. I'm looking forward to making room on my shelves! Haha.
Welcome aboard and good luck with your challenge! This group is an excellent mix of support group and enablers ;)
>9 rabbitprincess: I'm glad to hear it. ;) I had a quick look on your profile and thread, but I can't come up with your name, is rabbitprincess alright to refer to you as? Anyway, I'm really appreciative of the warm welcome.
