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

  1. I wasn’t sure if I was going to do the next one but I love the challenges and most are books in my bookshelf, so yay!

  2. 5 points – queen or king
    The Return of the King – J.R.R. Tolkien

    Also, read a book by an author born in March, April, May, or June is on there twice.

  5. Ok..I think I have everyone updated now.

  6. I wasn’t sure if I was going to join again, but such great categories! I like that these are less specific and more vague, so I can fill my reading in with books I really want to read. I have enjoyed some of the specific categories though, since now I have a whole set of Heyer mysteries to investigate.
    I might get a Queen book read before the end of this month (The Heretic Queen is almost ready at the library), but I’m very pleased with my total regardless.

    • You’ve done great! Much better than I. My husband hasn’t been working so I think he’s been the culprit. Bring on the nice weather so he can get out of the house! lol

  7. I have 10 points for a book on art (The Philosophy of Andy Warhol) and 15 books for a book on the King Arhur/Camelot (graphic adaptation) bringing me to 220. I’m working hard to make sure I finish on time! Only three books left.

    (“a book with a number in the title” is listed twice for the new challenge, under 10 points and 15 points. May I suggest adding something a bit more specific instead? I never would have read Georgette Hyer, Dickens, or reread V.C. Andrews–to name just a few–without this challenge. Please? 🙂 )

    • Thanks Cass! I think I have a list with no repeats now! I must have been tired or in a hurry when I made it up 🙂

      I have your total updated. Great job!

  8. I don’t have anything new to add right now – I might get one finished by the end of the month tho. I love these challenges and I will definitely be participating in the next one – I have been a little slow on this one.

  9. Ooo, I think I’ll have to sign up again! 🙂

    But first, another 5 points for a February author – Maureen Johnson.
    http://tinyreadingroom.blogspot.com/2010/02/review-key-to-golden-firebird.html

  10. I’m up to 160 now: http://lindseysparks.blogspot.com/2009/11/four-month-reading-challenge.html. I read Olive Kitteridge, which is a Pulitzer Prize winner.
