Long time no post! I've been holding off on posting 'cause I was so very, very close to the end. Now I've made it. I've read my own height (and a tiny bit more). I already have my next challenge in mind, but first I need to finish up with this one.

[personal profile] iltaru is still working on hers, of course.

* = reread.

Plan post:
New additions:
Shoulder to top of head ("unexpected"):
-Rosemary Rowe, Murder in the Forum.
-Karen Joy Fowler, The Jane Austen Book Club.
-Jeannette Winterson, Sexing the Cherry.
Hip to shoulder ("serious stuff"):
-Frances Hodgson Burnett, Little Lord Fauntleroy.
-Nina Bawden, Carrie's War.
-Charles Dickens, David Copperfield.
Knee to hip ("anything goes"):
-J. R. R. Tolkien, The Two Towers.*
-J. R. R. Tolkien, The Return of the King.*
-Jeanette Winterson, Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit.
Floor to knee ("new reads"):
-Rosemary Sutcliff, The Capricorn Bracelet.
-Nicholas Stuart Gray, The Seventh Swan.
-Surgei Lukyanenko, The Night Watch.

Participants: Just me, this time!

The Plan:
Read my own height (~5'4"/1.5m) again.
The Rules:
1. This must include only books owned before 01/11/2009.
2. There are only two sections: "rereads" and "new".

This is in an effort to clear my shelves a bit faster! Hence the relative lack of rules. I don't even have to review anything, though I probably will, just read it.
