Post Fokheads Reading Challenge 2017
This event is n0th1n's doing.

Okay, so half the year's over already and we have maybe 4.5 months left or some shit. Fuck, the days just zip by, huh? Anyway, we're holding a book reading contest! None of that online mangoos or anything, but with real books!

"Journey to the West by Wu Cheng'en
Dream of the Red Chamber by Cao Xueqin"

I watched the TV series and read some poems from the dream of the red chamber(story of the stone). does that count?

Nope. And good luck with reading the full books. Dream of the Red Chamber is nearly twice as long as the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Translations are acceptable, but not the abridged translations, which are common. You need to read the full translations, which for Journey to the West often come in multiple volumes.
