Reading Challenge Update

We are almost 3/4 way through 2017, and I can hardly believe it! What better time to check in on our 2017 Reading Challenge?

So far I’ve finished these books from the challenge:
The Alchemist
East of Eden
Rich People Behaving Badly
Field Notes from a Catastrophe
Letters of Note
Hemingway in Love
Travels with Charley
The Essential Neruda: Selected Poems (Bilingual Edition)
Between the World and Me
Rich People Behaving Badly

Plus these from Book of the Month Club:
The Association of Small Bombs
The Nest
Modern Lovers
One Day We’ll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter

I love having Book of the Month Club as a way to discover new literature that I might not otherwise find on my own! The best part is that they don’t ship my box or charge me unless I pick a book, so it’s not a big deal if I forget about it, as I tend to do with subscription services. Anyone else have that issue? I am seriously the worst at forgetting so skip a month. Fortunately I only subscribe to books, wine and more wine, and I’m never mad about forgetting to skip a month of wine.

Update us on your challenge progress in the comments, or share a book we should add to our list!

Happy Reading!


2017 Reading Challenge

Recently my sister sent me the Modern Mrs. Darcy 2017 Reading Challenge, and I am so excited to do it! They offer 2 different options, a Reading for Fun challenge and a Reading for Growth Challenge. I actually decided to do both! Here are my picks for the year:

Reading for Growth

Reading for Fun

I can’t wait to get started on these books! If you would like to read along with me and support Timshel Living, order through the links above. I’ll be starting out with Hemingway in Love

Happy Reading,
