Yikes - where did the year go? Well, I didn't accomplish my goal, which was to read 50 NYRB Classics in one year, starting from Labour Day 2009. I almost got there - as I write, I'm in the middle of reading my 45th. In my defense, according to my reading diary, I did read 72 other books in that time period, both for work and pleasure. However, I'm not giving up until I hit the 50 mark - I'll just give myself until the end of 2010 which seems perfectly doable, and this will allow me to tackle some longer titles that I've been eyeing. I certainly have enjoyed this challenge so far, and I'll post a full summary when I'm done. If you want to see which books I've already read, click here. I'll also offer another great NYRB giveaway to readers when my challenge is over, so stay tuned.
