Shakespeare Challenge Update: End of Week 2

Today is the final day of week 2 of my challenge to read all of Shakespeare in a month. I'm about halfway through the month and just slightly less than halfway through the book. Here's what I've read so far:

  1. King Henry VI, Part 1
  2. King Henry VI, Part 2
  3. King Henry VI, Part 3
  4. King Richard III
  5. Titus Andronicus
  6. The Comedy of Errors
  7. The Two Gentlemen of Verona
  8. Love's Labour's Lost
  9. Romeo and Juliet
  10. A Midsummer Night's Dream
  11. King John
  12. The Taming of the Shrew
  13. King Richard II
  14. The Merchant of Venice
  15. King Henry IV, Part 1
  16. King Henry IV, Part 2
  17. King Henry V
  18. Much Ado About Nothing

It's hard to believe I'm halfway through all of it. But, I'm not even reading at a fast pace.

The rate is 32 thousand words per day. At that rate, it would take 54 days to finish all 5 books of A Song of Fire and Ice. And, for context, I know someone who read all of them in a month. So yeah, this isn't a bragging contest or anything. I just want to finish it.

I've been taking pictures of sections that I enjoyed. I'm not reviewing anything right now because I'm finding myself rushing through the day just to finish reading in time. When it's over, I'm sure I'll be writing about it quite a bit on my other site.
