My ‘To Be Read’ (TBR) pile contains about 300 books at the moment, so this is a great challenge to force me to read a few that have been lurking at the bottom of the pile for a while!
The TBR challenge is to make a list of 12 books now, and then read them all in 2009 – the list CANNOT be changed after 31st December 2008.
My 2009 TBR challenge list is:
1. Going Out – Scarlett Thomas
2. Lamb in His Bosom – Caroline Miller
3. The Catcher in the Rye – J.D. Salinger
4. Half of a Yellow Sun – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
5. The Stone Diaries – Carol Shields
6. When We Were Orphans – Kazuo Ishiguro
7. The Hiding Place – Trezza Azzopardi
8. The Secret History – Donna Tartt
9. Reading in the Dark – Seamus Deane
10. Outlander – Diana Gabaldon
11. Interpreter of Maladies – Jhumpa Lahiri
12. Things Fall Apart – Chinua Achebe
I’m not going to create an alternative list, as I do not want any excuse not to read any of the books on this list!
