If you have any recommendations for me on the basis of this list, by all means drop me a line! My New Year's Resolution is to read at least 200 books, and I'm always looking for suggestions.

YEARLY TOTAL (to date): 122

Bloody hell! When do you sleep?!

I thought I was doing well with my total of 10 books for the year! I feel wholly inadequate now.

Shouldn't you be in the Magic Kingdom? ^__^
1st-Apr-2006 01:54 pm (UTC)
Watch me bit a couch potato/Internet junkie even on vacation. ^_~
1st-Apr-2006 04:14 pm (UTC)
I see a fellow bookworm here. I'm adding you :) Hope that's ok :)
1st-Apr-2006 04:20 pm (UTC)
Welcome, Ania! ^__^ I've added you back.

Always thrilled to find a new lj book-lover :) Right now, I'm studying Literary Studies.
1st-Apr-2006 05:04 pm (UTC)
*curious* What sort of literary studies? In English only, or literature generally?
1st-Apr-2006 05:10 pm (UTC)
Actually in Swedish :) literary studies in general(I'm doing a 'B course' and that means 19th and 20th century literature) with a special focus on Swedish literature.
1st-Apr-2006 05:34 pm (UTC)
That's really cool. ^_^ I know absolutely nothing, NOTHING, about Swedish literature. Is there anything in particular that you could recommend that's been translated into English?
1st-Apr-2006 05:56 pm (UTC)
You must have heard about Astrid Lindgren, August Strindberg or Bergman.

No, actually. >_<

Thanks for the recommendations, though! I'll look into them!
1st-Apr-2006 06:05 pm (UTC)
*laughs* Ah, yes, I remember Pippi Longstocking from when I was a kid. But I didn't know that she was Swedish! (And I don't remember if I've ever read any of the books or not. >_< I certainly didn't know who the author was. )
1st-Apr-2006 06:26 pm (UTC)
I can understand this :) I'm Polish. I'm majoring in Scandinavian Studies so I need to be clued up on Nordic Literatures.
1st-Apr-2006 06:55 pm (UTC)
holy smokes - you belong in the guiness book of world records

...and yeah...i feel really illiterate now, lol
1st-Apr-2006 08:59 pm (UTC)
Do you speed read? How much do you retain and do you anything else? ;)
1st-Apr-2006 10:08 pm (UTC)
Hmm. Well, how do you define "speed read"? I can probably read about a page per minute, depending upon the density of the text.
3rd-Apr-2006 12:34 am (UTC)
Damn you, damn you!! Twice the books I read last month, grumble.
3rd-Apr-2006 02:18 am (UTC)
I didn't realize that this was to be a competition. ^_~
4th-Apr-2006 04:42 pm (UTC)
Only in my own mind. I have a weakness for quixotic losing battles. ^_^;;
4th-Apr-2006 04:49 pm (UTC)
Well, you're just adding a lot of unnecessary stress to your life, then. :P

(LOVE that icon, BTW. XD )

Russell Hoban--I've only read Riddley Walker, which I thought was just fantastic...how were his other books?

3rd-Apr-2006 12:57 pm (UTC)
They were well-written but (except for Her Name Was Lola) very misogynistic.
