Second Chances Challenge

Oh, hello there. My name is Athena, and I’m addicted to reading challenges.

Yes, here is yet another reading challenge. The Second Chances Challenge takes place October, November and December of 2007. The goal: “Read 3 books by authors that you have only read one other.”

Mah choices, let me show you them:

1. Specimen Days by Michael Cunningham

Read The Hours which I love.

2. Pale Fire by Vladmir Nabokov – Completed

Read Lolita which I really like.

3. This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Read The Great Gatsy which was fine enough for me to read more Fitzgerald. Also reading this for the “Something About Me Challenge”.

    lol, I think I’m becoming addicted to challenges as well. I also loved “The Hours”, and have yet to read more Michael Cunningham. I look forward to your thoughts on “Specimen Days”.

  2. Joy says:

    Welcome to the 2nds Challenge! I’m so glad you have decided to join us. Looks like a great list. I hope you enjoy your picks.

  3. Ava says:

    do you have a choice? Because Nabokov’s “Speak Memory” is excellent. It’s his autobiography, written like no other.

  4. Athena says:

    Hi Ava, thanks for the rec. I’ll definitely keep “Speak Memory” in mind for another day because I do find that I like Nabokov’s work.
