We're nearing the end of 2011 and it's time for me to do my challenge wrap-up posts. I am proud to say that I've finished every challenge that I signed up for this year! I get right on my challenges as January rolls around, plotting out when, but not necessarily what, to read for each challenge so that I don't forget about them. A little organized, yes, but it works for me.
The idea behind the One, Two, Theme is that we are to read one book in our first theme, two in our second, and three in our third. I kind of cheated having the Middle East as one of my themes since I did my own Middle East Challenge. So, I wish I had chosen a different first theme to push myself a little more. Here's my list:
- Middle East: Muslim Women Reformers by Ida Lichter
- Uganda: The Enough Moment by John Prendergast and Don Cheadle (non-fiction) and Unknown Soldier: Haunted House by Jason Dysart (graphic novel, fiction); Tropical Fish: Tales from Entebbe by Doreen Baingana (short stories, fiction)
- Dance: When the Stars go Blue by Caridad Ferrer; Russian Winter by Daphne Kalotay; Martha Graham by Russell Freedman; Audition by Stasia Ward Kehoe
