The Seconds 2009 Challenge was hosted by Joy to make sure that we don't just stop at one book per author. There are so many authors that we discover and then forget to read more by. I loved the idea of this challenge. To see what I read, visit my original post. I think that my favorites were Kafka on the Shore and The Lollipop Shoes. Least favorite was definitely Amsterdam, I did not like that one at all!
The Chunkster Challenge was hosted by So many books, so little time and actually finishes on 17 December rather than at the end of the year so I'm writing this wrap-up post right on time! We were required to read 4 chunksters - I read many more... for the full list see my original post. I wanted to read some truly huge books but didn't manage. Still, the ones I read were long too so they counted anyway! All of them were fantastic so I'm not going to torure myself by trying to choose a favorite!
Thanks to both of you for hosting these fun challenges!
