« Midweek Mishmash: Reading Notes | Main | A Quiet August in Stillmeadow »



Alternate history novels are endlessly fascinating to me. Of course Robert Harris' Fatherland is a reference. But there's also Philip Roth's Plot against America.


I always start every year thinking I'm going to be reading a great variety and usually towards the end of the year I'm spending more time with my typical comfort reads. I like this "Read Harder" challenge and I'm sure you'll be able to meet your end of year goals. Can't wait to hear more!


I have owed Fatherland for so long--I am not sure why I have not yet read it. I think it is a classic. I tend to lean towards alternate history books set in that era, though I wouldn't mind something else entirely. I forgot about the Roth-I have that on my shelves as well!


I have strayed away from those lists as well that looked so enticing at the start of the year. I even bought the journal that goes with the Read Harder challenge (it can be used just for book logging, too, luckily), and for the better part of the year I have totally neglected those lists. I guess next year I should not make any plans at all really!! If I can squeeze in a couple more from the list, though, I will be happy.
