Hello there, I'm setting a modest goal:

I'm not including ebooks and digital audiobooks in my challenge.

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.

>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.

>10 knotbox: Yup, rabbitprincess or RP work fine! :)
