2012 Challenge: Graham Greene Reading Challenge




Carrie at Books and Movies is hosting the Graham Greene Reading Challenge in 2012, to encourage people to read more of his books.

I am signing up for the "Getting Your Feet Wet" level to read two GG books in 2012.

I already planned to read The Comedians for the Birth Year Reading Challenge, so that will be my first choice.

I am not sure yet which my second book will be, but I'm going to maximize crossover with other challenges, like the Mt. TBR Challenge and my European Reading Challenge.

The following are also on my TBR shelf already, so it will be one of these:

The End of the Affair (1951)

Travels With My Aunt (1969)

Doctor Fischer of Geneva or the Bomb Party (1980)

Getting to Know the General: The Story of an Involvement (1984)

The Tenth Man (1985)

I am also going to get a GG post up with a list of all his books.  He is a favorite of mine, so he should go on my list of favorites.

  1. I like this idea though I haven't read much Greene. The End of the Affair blew me away, I recommend it highly. I also read A Burnt-out Case (not riveting) and The Human Factor (much better than I'd expected). I must see what the library has.
    I've just posted about a literary award you may not know about. I'd love to hear your thoughts on it when you have a moment.

  2. Welcome to the challenge!
