Out with the Old Challenge – Week 1 Recap

As I mentioned earlier this week, I am participating in a 4 week challenge on PaperBackSwap to read older books.  I’m still reading a little YA and will blog about that, but probably won’t blog about non YA stuff.  Here’s a recap of my Week 1!

Number of Books Read: 9
Total Points: 3100
Books Read:

  1. I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith (500 pts)
  2. Watership Down by Richard Adams (500 pts)
  3. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart (250 pts)
  4. Mossflower by Brian Jacques (500 pts)
  5. Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery (500 pts)
  6. Wuthering High by Cara Lockwood (250 pts)
  7. The Scarlett Letterman by Cara Lockwood (250 pts)
  8. Moby Clique by Cara Lockwood (250 pts)
  9. School for Dangerous Girls by Eliot Schrefer (100 pts)

I listened to the Mossflower audiobook while working this week.  It was a lot of fun – I recommend the Redwall series audiobooks!  I was able to download it for free from my local library.

I decided not to blog about the last two I read.  I didn’t like either of them very much, so I decided not to waste my time blogging about them!

I’ll update this post tomorrow with my rank in the game! I’m in 6th of 34 this week!

  1. I have to ask: where can I find info about this PBS challenge? Can’t seem to find it on their website, unless I’m looking in the wrong place there.

    1. It’s in the discussion forums under “Games.” It’s member run, not official. Still fun, though!
