Howards End is On the Landing

While browsing on Amazon.com some time ago, I ran across Susan Hill’s book, Howards End is on the Landing, and was instantly intrigued with her accomplishment. I love the idea of taking a hiatus from book buying (the logistics of which will involve phenomenal restraint) and concentrate on what I have already purchased.

So here begins (yet again) my journey…into my own library. My goal is to make a visible and memorable dent in my personal library by the end of 2016.  I’m going to track my progress, and hopefully at the end, I will have read more good books than bad, and perhaps I will have found a few ridiculously good books and passed them along to friends who will love them like I did.  Wish me luck…and come along for the ride.

    • Thankfully I know I enjoy both Larssen and Wiesel, as I have read the first of each trilogy. I have been wanting to get back to finish the Millennium trilogy for several years, and keep getting distracted, and I have wanted to reread Night ever since the subsequent books were published. I figured putting them in the challenge would increase the possibility that I would succeed this year. Fingers crossed…
