I completed the Jewish Literature Challenge! It was hosted by Callista and ran from 21 December 2008 until 27 April 2009 - I finished my last book just in time! My original post had many options, as usual, but here's what I ended up reading in the end:
Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky
Night by Elie Wiesel
Nothing's Sacred by Lewis Black
The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka
I'm glad that not everything I read was about World War II, but I regret not reading anything that would tell me more about Jewish culture and customs. Next time, eh Callista? :-)
My favorite book was Night - it's one that I think everyone should read!
And I failed the Latin American Reading Challenge, hosted by Katrina at Katrina Reads. As you can see from my sign-up post, I had lots of great books planned, but I only managed to read one (The Witch of Portobello by Paolo Coelho) and this one was only mediocre... challenge or no challenge, I hope to get to some of the other books on my list later this year.
Thanks to both hosts for helping me discover new books! :-)
