As we near the end of 2022 (what?!) and lots of us are attempting to finish 2022 planned reads, let's make the last challenge of the year open-ended.

This month's challenge will be to catch up - read a book you really wanted to finish by the end of the year.

This time, I definitely mean to read The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, which was the September book in my 1001 discord reading group.

>3 DeltaQueen50: I spotted this one recently and am very interested in it. I studied Indian history in senior school and we did a lot on the caste system.

>4 JayneCM: I don't hear as much about the caste system in India as I used to. I have always been fascinated by India and love reading books set there.

I have finished my read of Untouchable by Mulk Ray Anand. It is a short, "day-in-the-life" of a young Untouchable - an easy read and an interesting story.
