50 Book Challenge 2015

#1  Postby NamelessFaceless » Jan 03, 2015 3:31 am

It's a new year, so time for new thread!

50 Book Challenge 2015

Rules of the challenge for those not familiar with the challenge:

1. 50 books.
2. A book must be at least 50 pages long.
3. Books you started in 2014 and finish in 2015 count on the 2015 list.
4. Re-reads count
5. If a book has two books in it it counts as two (Ex. An Orwell book with the animal farm and 1984, counts as two.)
6. No rules on what to read, besides what's listed.
7. This is for fun so enjoy yourself.

Happy reading! :cheers:

1. The Talisman - Stephen King and Peter Straub.
2. The Spirit Clearing - M.R Tufo. KINDLE BOOK (and absolutely dreadful, yet it has 4.5 stars from 70 reviews on Amazon. I'll never understand people).
3. Abbot's Keep - Benedict Ashforth.
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

1. Hull Zero Three - Greg Bear
The slap in the face that is offered by anti-rationalist, pseudo-scientists and anti-intellectuals that infest much of public discourse is a sad coda to what has been achieved these centuries past by the scientific method - don’t get me started
