Today at 12:57pm I finally finished my first “Reads” challenge, “The Shadow of the Wind” by Carlos Ruiz Zafón.
I realise that finishing my book on the last day of the month is cutting it fine and I was really close to failing my challenge before it had even started. Lessons to take away from my first book:
- Read everyday, even a few pages.
- Don’t leave the book at a friends house.
- Work out how many pages I need to read per week and stick to it.
- Ask friends to choose a book around 500 pages – my reading pace won’t cope with anything longer.
Despite cutting it fine I’m glad I finished my first book of 2012 in time. I’ll be writing the review in the next couple of days so watch this space…
As promised I’m sticking to my method for choosing books…
The last letter, of the last word, on the last page, of “The Shadow of the Wind” is D
Time to choose a friend to recommend my next book.
