Does anyone want this challenge extending? Or is everyone happy for it to expire at the end of the year?

I finished this challenge, but I could use the 60's challenge extended, if your offering.

I just finished this challenge this week. Looking forward to moving on to the 60s.

Interesting finds: I enjoyed Philip k. Dick and Alfred Bester, I think the only reason Bester isn't a bigger name is that he has so few sci fi novels.

Disappointments: James Blish and Gordon Dickson. Usually I don't mind religion in my sci fi, but I found A case of Conscience boring. And Dorsai! has been on my shelf for years, but the wait wasn't worth it. I'd rather reread Starship Troopers.

The Forum posted the above as a Guest. Apparently I forgot to log in before I posted. Any way, this has been a great idea for a reading challenge and hope to knock off a couple more decades in 2017.

I've gotten out of the habit of checking the forums. I think it's okay to close the 1950s at the end of the year. I think I need to just start again with a newer forum.
