My 100 page-a-day book challenge (and reading list)



For a while I've been meaning to start reading a lot more than I already do. I think, on average, I'll read perhaps three or four books per year, which is pretty pathetic (not counting comics - of which I've read about 400 this year so far). To this end I've started my own reading challenge - to get through 100 pages every day. I know to voracious readers this doesn't sound like much, but I've been doing it for the past two weeks and my reading has increased exponentially. Since Monday last week I've read four books, so I've already beaten my annual average within a fortnight. Yay me!

So, right now I'm compiling a reading list and I need your recommendations. So far I have on my list:

  • Koko Takes a Holiday
  • American Gods
  • The Carpet Makers
  • Lexicon
  • Half a King
  • Half a World
  • Half a War
  • Fahrenheit 451
  • Three Parts Dead
Now, this is only around eight or nine weeks worth of books, so I'd love to know what you would recommend. I know the ones I've listed are all speculative fiction, but I'll read pretty much anything (aside from family sagas and romance - not really a fan). 

Throw 'em at me.
