Impressions from the reading life

#TBRTakedown 3.5 takes off today!

Shannon over at Leaning Lights hosts the #TBRTakedown readathons and started doing some mini readathons; this is one of them.


It’s running from April 8-10 and starts at 12:00 AM on the 8th your timezone.


There are also four (totally optional) challenges:

  1. Standalone – a book that’s not part of a series
  2. Most recent haul – your most recent purchase from your most recent haul
  3. Catch up in a series – an opportunity to catch up on that series you’ve been putting off
  4. TBR shelf over a year (or the longest) – you know the ones


My plans are not yet settled, but today's goal will be to finish Stormfront by Jim Butcher.I have only 80 pages left, so this should be easy. (Also: Showdown!)


My tbr has some interesting options, mostly dead white men, and they are:

Georg Büchner / Friedrich Hebbel / Edward Albee / Max Frisch / Heinrich von Kleist / Franz Grillparzer / Heinrich Böll / Per Olov Enquist / Patricia McKillip / Muriel Spark / Muriel Barbery
