I am currently embarking on a journey that isn’t exactly monumental for most people. However I’m quite proud of it. I am going to read one book a week for 52 weeks :). So we’ll start this as week 1, even though I finished a book last week I finished it by the skin of my teeth.
Week 1: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban – J.K. Rowling (448 Pages / 64 Pages Nightly)
Week 2: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire – J.K. Rowling (752 Pages / 107 Pages Nightly)
Week 3: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – J.K. Rowling (870 Pages / 125 Pages Nightly)
Week 4: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince – J.K. Rowling (652 Pages / 93 Pages Nightly)
Week 5: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – J.K. Rowling (784 Pages / 112 Pages Nightly)
Week 6: Under the Dome: A Novel – Stephen King (1074 Pages / 153 Pages Nightly)
Week 7: Foundation and Empire – Isaac Asimov (272 Pages / 38 Pages Nightly)
Week 8: Second Foundation – Isaac Asimov (272 Pages / 38 Pages Nightly)
So that’s what I’ve got lined up for the next 8 weeks. We’ll see how it pans out! I’m hoping that some of the larger books don’t kill me desire to move on but I think that I can get a pretty good idea of how quickly I read after the first book.
I am going to chart my nightly reading and make an awesome excel sheet out of it. So that is something to look forward to.
After each book I’ll likely talk about it a bit but that’s not part of the project. This is just to see what I can accomplish and how much literature I can dive into. The goal overall is to expand my horizons, see how others write, and help prepare myself better for my own writing.
