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!

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.

Eh, I'm reading Dante's Inferno at the moment. Water Margin sounds interesting so I might read that next.

Alright, so, let me think, books I read last month:

The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher
The Tale of Ginger and Pickles
The Tale of Mrs. Tittlemouse
The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse
Chicka Chicka 1 2 3
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
Dr. Seuss's ABC
Oh the Places You'll Go
Thomas Helps Out
The Pout Pout Fish Goes to School
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
The Berenstain Bears and the Real Easter Eggs
Super Mario Adventures

There were a few more I can't remember the names of at the moment...
Those are ones I completed reading anyway.

Pretty nice-looking list there.

As for me, I read Algorithm Design by Jon Kleinberg and Eva Tardos and the Art of War by Sun Tzu this month.

Also, what's Super Mario Adventures like?
