I've finished the my four books for the It's the End of the World Reading Challenge II. I read:
- A Canticle for Leibowitz - Walter M. Miller Jr. - finished 6/25/09
- The City of Ember - Jeanne DuPrau - finished 5/11/09
- Earth Abides - George R. Stewart - finished 5/22/09
- Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse - John Joseph Adams, ed - finished 4/15/09
So apparently the Paperspine computer system loves this challenge, and with that kind of encouragement, I finished it pretty quickly. Despite the seemingly depressing subject matter, I had a lot of fun reading my books. I tend to read more fantasy, so it was nice to venture over into the sci fi part of the world.
I do still have a couple of other books in my queue, that I'd put in thinking I might have trouble getting more books from the genre, so I've now sunk them down to the bottom of the queue. Who knows, if there's a challenge next year, I'll have to see if the Paperspine system gives me another sign and sends me more post-apocalyptic books out of the blue.
