Anyone do reading challenges? I'm thinking about it this year because of changes to my work schedule i will have more than enough time to read (i.e. 5 12 hour shifts every 10 days of potential reading time)

This was the best one I could find, though would like to see some others that aren't aimed towards middle aged women and/or kids.

Here's what I've got lined up IAW the image:

> Huckleberry Finn
> The Metamorphosis
> Infinite Jest
> Beowulf
> Moby Dick
> (fuck whatever i guess)
> The Hellbound Heart
> White Noise
> Dubliners
> A Wild Sheep Chase
> The Case of Charles Dexter Ward
> The Trial and Death of Socrates
> Picture of Dorian Gray
> Alphabet of Manliness
> Inherent Vice
> Crime and Punishment
> Great Gatsby
> 'Salem's Lot, Shining or The Stand. Not sure which is best or how much time ill have.
> (implying I will do this)
> Brave New World
> Faust
> (no idea)
> Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography
> Slaughterhouse-Five

will I make it?

Sounds cool, I don't have the motivation to do it but goodluck if you do do it

That's gay as shit. If you don't have any intrinsic motivation to read get off my board

I love the idea of this list! It pushes you to try something you may have never been willing to read. If you don't like poems for example but you tried to finish a collection, you can put it down. I'm sure an alpha such as yourself has already touched upon every genre and subgenre known to man so you already have your preferences. But some of us lowly bets need some guidance in what else is left to try.

I had intrinsic motivation my whole life to read, That doesn't mean I can't do a list. There's nothing really bad about it.

Whats the point of forcing yourself to read poetry if you can't enjoy it?

I will never read another book by Stephen King, Germ Martin, or Neil Gaimon (maybe I would a graphic novel). So hooped for the challenge T Bee's

What's the point of not trying to read a knew genre. I said that you can put it down but at least you are making a move to explore new book types.

>Read something be either Plato, Aristotle or Marcus Aurelius
>Marcus Aurelius

Didn't he write only one book?
