Extensive reading challenge, August 2015

Read in order to read a lot, quantity matters more than quality. It's okay to skip words, it's even desirable. You read to understand most of what's going on, but not everything. It should be fun to read and using dictionaries to look up unknown words typically isn't all that fun.

Just finished reading 活着。I found the story easy to read at intermediate level. The language is coarse, but the story is very touching.
