This thread is intended to be a thread where RP'ers can list books read from the first day that they post in this thread through an entire year; the idea is to see how many books the average RP'er goes through in a year. Since this is a bit of a contest, I put it in Spam, but at the same time, this isn't really a Spam thing except that it kind of ends up here.
- No Trolling Over Other People's Choices. This isn't Spam. You might not like the books others are reading; that's cool, but this isn't the thread to discuss it.
- On the other hand...this is a good thread to discuss books, what you think of the ones you've read and so forth. Recommendations are always welcome...because some of us are always shopping for books.
- This is the books you have read starting from the first day you post in the thread; so that day next year is when challenge ends.
- A book title only counts once -- you can reread something you read before, but it only counts once in this contest.
- Assigned course reading/books are cool, but not textbooks. Those don't count.
- No comics or manga or whatever else that is based on graphics.
- Keep your list up to date on one post because I'll be linking to it. You can, however, post when you've updated -- that will be appreciated.
- It's not hard to cheat on this, but if you do, karma will take a dump in your Wheaties. So please be honest in reporting.
Just a suggestion on how to organize one's reading list.
- Dune by Frank Herbert
- The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams
- Stranger in a Strange Land, by Robert Heinlein
- Strikethrough means the book is completed
- Underline means that the book is currently being read
- A title with no modification means its on the list to be read; it's like I know I'm definitely going to read the book next -- maybe I'm going through a trilogy or something, right?
