Seafaring Reading Challenge

Death by reading challenges, eh? The Seafaring challenge features books of nautical nature. It runs from November 1, 2007 to January 31, 2008. I really just have one goal in this challenge: Read any book(s) from the Horatio Hornblower series by C. S. Forrester.

I love the miniseries, and I’ve been meaning to read at least one of these books for years. One book makes me Lieutenant, but I want to attain at least Captain by the end of January.

Oh here are some bonuses as per my usual challenge posts:

Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe
20, 000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne
The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by Avi
..and any Pulitizer Prize or Newbery winning book that fits into this category

I am really open to suggestions since I have read little in this genre. Nonfiction can apply, but it must be engaging of course.

    The Aubrey/Mautrin series by Patrick O’Brien starting with Master and Commander. They’re really good.

    Are you still in the Read-a-thon? I have some encouragement for you on my blog.
