Recently I received a reading challenge (lots of r’s…anyone know of an R word that can replace challenge?). A person by the username “Warsock” (great name, by the way) asked this:
“Is it possible to read a book and understand it, but only read every other chapter?”
Oh, and Warsock, I’m not sure if that was actually a challenge, but I’m going to take it as one. So I’m going to read a popular book (one I haven’t read before) and attempt to understand it without actually reading the other half. I’ll post here when done and describe the storyline I read.
My first dilemma, however, is whether I should start on the first or second chapter. If I read the first chapter, I get introduced to a bunch of characters I’ve never heard of, but if I read chapter two I’ll be able to read the final chapter, the conclusion….any suggestions?
Also, I need a good idea for a book (preferably under 400 pages…it’s going to be hard to get through this). So if anyone here knows of a good, popular book (not Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Narnia, or anything like that that I’ve aready read).
