the results of my goodreads challenges from the last 3 years..
Another year, another reading challenge! I barely made my goal of 40 books last year. It was pretty difficult getting to my goal, despite all the reading I seemed to have been assigned. This year may be no different. I'm taking 4 classes this semester, of which half require 4 different books. I tried to get a head start during the holiday break in the early part of January and that seemed to have helped. I find it hard to find time to read for pleasure when I have several assignments converging, so many of the things I seem to be reading are related to the things I'm studying, and then of course, there's poetry. Thank goodness for poetry!
My 2017 GoodReads Reading Challenge
I'm 1 book ahead according to the challenge. The above include the 2 books from for my Political Theory class (The Republic, and The Prince), The Hero Twins book is a fun graphic telling of the Popol Vuh (which I'm studying in my Native Amerian Culture & Lit. (HIST33) class. The rest are things I kept myself busy with in early January while I was waiting for classes to start up again. The Hafiz and Rumi I came across at the Oakland Public Library, and were very nice decompression from classes.
I'll need to do papers on The Prince, and on Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian (not included in the count because I already read the book some time ago..) but I'll be reading Nietzsche and Foucault for the Political Theory class. I have a Political Thought of Hannah Arendt I'll take a look at on my own, and I'm currently reading Leonard Peltier's Prison Writings for my HIST33 class,(as well Tribes, Treaties, and Constitutional Tribulations by Vine DeLoria, Jr. for myself.) Along with my other history texts, I'll definitely have almost 20 books by the end of May, so totally possible, yes?
I guess we'll see!
