Week 3, Book 4: Hard Revolution

Pelecanos, George. Hard Revolution. One of my favorite authors lately.


Slight rule change for 52 Books in 52 Weeks, 2006 Edition

I decided to amend the third rule in the 52 Books in 52 Weeks challenge, 2006 Edition. The original rule was:

  • A book counts towards the total when I finish it.

The new rule is:

  • A book counts towards the goal if I start it on or after Sunday of a given week and finish it on or before Saturday of the same week.

I think this tightens up the schedule a little, and forces me closer to the original goal: 52 books in 52 weeks.

One side effect is that now I need to strategize. I finished Rosalyn Story's More Than You Know late last Friday for the book for week 2. I'm going to be on the road at the end of this week, and busy most of the time, so I really need to finish this week's book by Wednesday night. I could have started my next book (Hard Revolution by George Pelecanos) on Saturday, but then it wouldn't have counted for this week. As a result, I had to (gasp!) not read until Sunday.

Fortunately, Google Earth is now available for Mac OS X, so I have something else to do with my time. (Rob, that's not a shout-out, but hello anyway. :-)
