It’s about time I owned up about the abject failure that was the Fall Into Reading Challenge, so here’s how it all panned out.

I meant:

  • to read the following books left over from RIP III challenge:
    • Duma Key by Stephen King [failed]
    • Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury [completed – hurrah!!]
    • Come Closer by Sara Gran [failed]
    • Midwinter of the Spirit by Phil Rickman [failed]
  • to finish Jigs and Reels by Joanne Harris which I started reading way back when? [failed]
  • to finish The Mandlebaum Gate which I abandoned earlier this year, and kick-start my Muriel Spark readathon once again [failed]
  • to read The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman as soon as I get my sticky paws on it [failed]
  • to find enough books in addition to these, and make the time to read them, so that I hit my 52 books in 52 weeks goal [not anywhere likely to succeed – may get to 40 if I try really, really hard]

Oh well, better to have tried and failed……..
