This was my first challenge and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Choosing the theme was great fun, and I have lots of unused themes in mind for next time. It was very motivating to read on a deadline. It was kind of nice to have limited choices, when it came time to decide what to read next -- instant prioritization! And it feels really good to have cleared those books off my shelf and off my conscience.
Naturally, I have a few ideas for improvement, too. Next time, I might read all the thick ones first, or at least be extra careful to plan something skinny for last. I might choose fewer books. I might choose fewer oldies, mixing in some newer classics.
That said, 8 out of 9 ain't bad!
And I know I'll get to War and Peace eventually.
