I had a good time reading these books. They were a nice counterpoint the RIP II challenge, where I'd chosen to read some much larger tomes. My only slight regret is that two of my choices were books where I had not seen the movie, and I'm finding that fitting a movie into my schedule isn't working as well as I'd intended. (Which actually strikes me as a rather amusing, since a move is less of a time commitment than a book, but then, I clearly have my priorities.) I've added both Shopgirl and Watership Down to our Netflix queue, but I'm really not sure when I'll finally get around to viewing them. Still, this was a great challenge, and I'm sad to see it over.
