I will admit that when the fine folks over at Books on the Nightstand posted a blog requesting status updates on the Beowulf on the Beach Summer Reading Challenge, I begged off commenting because I'm an utter failure. I do have every intention of eventually reading Middlemarch (and hopefully Paradise Lost), but I keep getting books from the library that are so good that I rationalize, "I've only got them checked out for three weeks... I have to read them NOW!"
But it would seem that I'm in pretty good company. The New Yorker reports here that pretty much all summer reading is destined to fail.
So how about you? How are you doing on the plans you made for your summer reading?
