Fall Into Reading 2010

The idea is to create a reading list for this fall. I have three books, all ones that I have started and not finished, but would like to:

1. Understanding Exposure. My sister and I were blogging our way through this book, but we got distracted last spring, and never got it going again. I want to finish. I've learned tons, I want to learn more.

2. 1776. Another one my sister and I started together. She finished, I didn't. I love the Founding era, and want to finish this one.

3. Les Miserables. I'm 280 pages into the unabridged version, and I wasn't ready at the time to tackle the second section. I just couldn't get into the chapter on Waterloo, and I understand there's quite a bit of this in the book, so I set it aside for a while. I'm ready to go back.

Wish me luck! I've always been inclined to flit from one thing to the next as my interest drew me, and I'm trying to cultivate the ability to finish things. Since I was enjoying these books, it seems reasonable to suppose that I will again, if I'd just pick them up. This challenge is the perfect excuse.

Wow, I have a bloggy friend who made it through the unabridged version of Les Mis. She was glad she stuck with it.

Happy reading!

I enjoyed the first part, I just wasn't prepared to tackle the second at the time. Now I'm ready to, I think, because now I'm OK with needing to go look up stuff about the battles that are going on: I don't know a lot about that part of French history. I'm ready to learn. I kind of doubt that I'll finish the book by Christmas, actually, but I should be able to make some good progress.
