The Reading Goals

Today I went to the library after work to pick up some books on my reading list. Since I have several lists (goals #1 through #8) I decided to pick up a few different books to see what I'm up for. And boy, I am up for quite a challenge!

I know, I know, it's 1001 days, not 1 year, but still... Around 160 books to read, which means 1 book every week. For some of the shorter ones this won't be a problem. I did however pick up a couple of books from the "German list" today, amongst which Robert Musil's "The Man Without Qualities" which is a whopping 1584 pages! Let's hope the other 159 aren't as hefty!

I will read all German books in German, all English books in English and the few Swedish books in Swedish. I have some French books on the 33 list, thus the goal of reading 1 novel in French. It has been quite some time since I last read a novel in French (not since uni in 2002 I think) so this will be quite a challenge.

But, as with all other goals: Let's get on with it!
