September's ended - time to change up our calendar for Read the Nobels.
If this is the first time you're hearing about this, these calendar wallpapers are a fun monthly project I cooked up for myself and is a sneaky way of promoting the Read the Nobels Reading Challenge for 2016. I select an author who has won the Nobel Prize in Literature, a book cover, and a quote.
I have been making slow progress with the challenge but it is still very much on my mind. The Read the Nobels blog continues to get a slow but steady stream of reviews and visits. How are you doing with the challenge?

If the title seems familiar, it has been made into a movie (see below) and a play (starring Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart!).
On the Read the Nobels blog, only two of Beckett's works have been reviewed so far, namely Worstward Ho and Endgame.
You can read more about Beckett and his work here:
