I still need to read ~50 books this year to finish my goal of 200 for 2014, and with November and NaNoWriMo coming up starting Saturday, it will be doubly hard to finish reading lots of books in the next few weeks. So, I came up with a plan- I figure I need a great carrot, and with no money but what I make on Bubblews, buying books is not an option. But, I have lots of favorite book series that I keep wishing to reread. If & when I finish that 200th book, I get to reread ALL my favorite series that I keep gazing at longingly. That means – The Lord of the Rings trilogy and accompanying books – The Riftwar series (Raymond E. Feist) – The Dark Is Rising sequence (Susan Cooper) – The Chronicles of Narnia – the Wrinkle in Time series (Madeline L’Engle) – the Wheel of Time series (Robert Jordan) – Harry Potter
I also get to check out and reread the series I don’t own but want – the Dark Tower series (Stephen King) – the Tripods series (John Christopher) – all the series by Lloyd Alexander – the Oz series – and, if I can find them, the Raggedy Ann & Andy books.
I might even reread the Andrew Lange ‘fairy books’ if I need more rereading once these are done. (…Crazy? I was crazy once. They put me in a room. It was cold. I died. They buried me. There were worms. They tickled me. They drove me crazy. Crazy? I was crazy once….) 🙂
