HIMS makes a good point. I'm going to revisit the list and have a think as to why I put them there. I don't think I'll change the named books though. Altering a challenge because I'm not going to do it seems a bit pointless to me. It's not a challenge if I can change the rules at any time (is how it feels to me). If I don't get round to them, then I'll just fail the challenge.

I do agree with Christa that forcing yourself to read something you are no longer in the mood for is a mistake, though. All you end up doing is resenting the book, and rushing to get through it.
