2011 Year-End Reading Plan: Update


So, I’ve already strayed off my plan path. I am still 3 books behind with a total of 13 books to go on my 52 Book in 52 Weeks challenge, and 6 behind with 9 to go on my Classics challenge! Here was my original YERP list:

Attracted by Fire by Diann Mills
The Scroll by Grant R. Jeffrey & Alton L. Gansky
Forbidden by Ted Dekker & Tosca Lee
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
A Separate Peace by John Knowles
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
Kingdom’s Dawn by Chuck Black
The Priest’s Graveyard by Ted Dekker
The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger
The Church Invisible by Nick Page
Touching Godliness through Submission by K. P. Yohannan
Practicing Exile by Marc H. Ellis
No Longer a Slumdog by K. P. Yohannan
When God Prayed by Don Wilton
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

And now here is my new YERP list:

Attracted by Fire by Diann Mills
The Scroll by Grant R. Jeffrey & Alton L. Gansky
Forbidden by Ted Dekker & Tosca Lee
P.S., I Love You by Cecelia Ahern
No Wonder They Call Him the Savior by Max Lucado

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
A Separate Peace by John Knowles
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
Kingdom’s Dawn by Chuck Black
The Priest’s Graveyard by Ted Dekker
The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger
The Church Invisible by Nick Page
Touching Godliness through Submission by K. P. Yohannan
Practicing Exile by Marc H. Ellis
No Longer a Slumdog by K. P. Yohannan
When God Prayed by Don Wilton
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

The books in green are the ones I will definitely read to make sure I meet both challenges. If I have time remaining before the year is up I will read the others on the list.

A preview of 2012:
Next year I will be hosting a challenge of my own: The Library Challenge. The idea of this challenge is to form (or re-form) a relationship with your local library by checking out books that meet the monthly challenges. You can read a bit more about it on the challenge blog.

Other than this challenge, I will not be participating in reading challenges. The two challenges I participated in this year were fun and got me motivated, but sometimes I felt overwhelmed. I’ve decided to take it a bit slower in 2012 and read deeper. I want to accomplish at least one of my reading goals and do a lot more Bible study. And I will continue to review books for publishers when one is presented that seems interesting to me.

Here’s hoping my YERP doesn’t change again. 🙂
