I have been meaning to write this post for several days now. And since I am already halfway through my challenge list, I figure it is now or never.
Bibliofreak is hosting a reading challenge this month based on novellas that looked pretty interesting. Too often I get interested in challenges but then don’t want to follow through on them once I have made my list. However, I knew I could complete this challenge just by taking things from my TBR pile. I tried to keep them under 150 pages (some sources say 120 pages is the top end of the novella range) and was only able to come up with four titles. So I guess that means I will only make it to Level II. If I come across others I won’t hesitate to shoot for Level III (eight novellas) before the end of the month, but I doubt that I find four more lurking somewhere in my collection.
So here are my four:
The Pilgrim Hawk by Glenway Wescott
Cheerful Weather for the Wedding by Julia Strachey
The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
The Bookshop by Penelope Fitzgerald
