My Personal Challenge – Part Two.

It has come to my attention that the BBC Top 100 list also includes an additional 100, making a list of 200 books. In addition to wanting to read the first 100, I also want to read the following list. I have yet to read any books on this next list. When this was brought to my attention, my initial reaction was of being overwhelmed, feeling like maybe I was in over my head. But then I remembered that the point of this is that it was a challenge. Challenges are meant to be difficult. This is a challenge that will take me some time, but it’s something that I cannot wait to begin! Wish me luck!
