May Reading Challenge

I have resolved NOT to buy any books in the month of May but instead, will give myself a reading challenge to finish before May 31, four books from my mounting TBR pile.

A snapshot of my May Reading Challenge:
1) Life of Pi by Yann Martel
2) The Harmony Silk Factory by Tash Aw
3) Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
4) Stories for the Heart compiled by Alice Gray

I was thinking about not any buying books at all until all of my TBRs are read. But that would be too ambitious. Normally, a new habit is formed within 21 days (that's what the experts say), so I will give it a shot by first, trying with four books. I reckon a meaningful 'project name' like May Reading Challenge would give me a sense of mission. LOL. Wish me luck!

PS: I'm now into Chapter 11 of Twilight (book #3). Gripping tale. Can't seem to put it down since Monday morning while having my morning coffee...
