Book Drunkard

“I am simply a 'book drunkard.' Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.” L.M. Montgomery

T4MC – Week 12


Virginie Says…

Week twelve, ladies!  Great job so far.  I, personally, can’t believe I got so many books read what with working and my daughters being on summer holidays.  I didn’t get anything finished last week, but I did start two new books – The Thistle and the Rose (Read a book by Jean Plaidy) and Blonde Baby by Wilson Collison (Read a book that was made into a movie.  The movie ended up being called Three Wise Girls and starred one of my faves, Jean Harlow)

Progress so far

Heather – 195 points

Sandra – 75 points

Moi!! – 170 points

Nise – 160 points

Veens – 95 points

Susie – 20 points

Sherrie – 85 points

Heather Ann – 90 points

TheBolyenSisters – 70 points

raidergirl3 – 170 points

Jessi – 10 points

  1. This is a lot of fun for me…thanks for doing it…… right now I’m stuck in the House of Night series and its doesnt fit into this for any points….so I’m losing out right now….but I cant stop reading these books….

    • Well, I’m working on another 4 Month Challenge for Oct, Nov, Dec and Jan., so hopefully you can participate more in that one! 🙂

  2. I love the variety of books I’ve read for this, and how it is so easy to personalize within the categories.

    I finished another 15 points: a book with a summer word in the title, plus, it was a book I had borrowed from a friend – The Last Summer (of You and Me) by Ann Brashares. This gives me 165 points total.
    Still 6 weeks or so left to go, and I figure there are about 4 more books I can read that can be used.

  3. jeez! I am stuck with the same points. I wish I could at least reach the 100 mark. I am so jealous of you! yu have reached 170 *wide eyed*

  4. Is “Fire” a summer word LOL!

    please tell me 🙂

    • Absolutely! Sorry, I thought I answered this question once before! Probably thought I hit the ‘submit’ button and then didn’

  5. I finished my read a book with a summer word – The Hot Kid by Elmore Leonard. That is another 15 points bringing me to 160 points.

  6. wow Heather! There is no stopping you.
    I have also read a book with a summer word- The Girl who played with Fire by STeig Larrson.

    That brings me to 95 points 🙂

  7. I also finished the read a book made into a movie – Coraline by Neil Gaiman (it almost felt like cheating because it was just over 100 pages). So my total is now 175. It will probably be awhile now til I get any more finished (I was staggaring my reading for awhile but now I finished everything at once).

  8. Finally able to update my list and add 50 points!
    Read a book that was made into a movie – Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Read a book with a summer word in the title (summer, sun, sand, hot, etc.) Summer Blowout by Claire Cook
    and Read a book in a series AND the one after it Hallies Heart & Morning Song by Shelly Beach

  9. I just finally finished the second book in my Maeve Binchy and Danielle Steel section. That one took forever to read both of them. I read Tara Road by Maeve Binchy and Five Days in Paris by Danielle Steel. So that should bring my total to 195! It is getting more difficult to match some of my review books into the few categories I have left!

  10. I read In the Company of the Courtesan, which counts for historical fiction, 5 pts.
    That makes my total 170 now.

    I’m excited about another version. What about picking a year, like 2007, recent but probably from the TBR pile? Or a Canadian/UK author? I like prize winners or nominated books, and there are tons of awards around. A non-fiction book? A holiday theme?
    A lot of these could be repeated, like book to movie, one word title. You prob don’t need many suggestions, cause the last list was great.

  11. Great job! I updated your totals.

    raidergirl – those are some great suggestions! I had Canadian author and Pulitzer prize winner already on my ‘rough copy’ list and I like the idea of repeating some of them, too.
