52 Books

Posted on: January 1, 2009

I’ve joined a reading challenge group on Ravelry. The idea is to read 52 books in 52 weeks. Hopefully this will encourage me to turn off the tv a few nights a week. Since moving to IL, I’ve been watching far more than I have in several months.

Here’s my to-read list: (of course, it’s subject to change as new books are released throughout the year)

1. Lolita
2. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
3. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian
4. Shadow Country
5. Home
6. The Graveyard Book
7. A Prayer for Owen Meany
8. The Hour I First Believed
9. Oryx and Crake
10. Twelve Angry Men
11. Bridge of Sighs
12. Suite Française
13. Song Yet Sung
14. On the Road
15. Anathem
16. What Makes a Child Lucky
17. The Postman Always Rings Twice
18. The Devil and Miss Prym
19. March
20. Einstein’s Dreams
21. The Heart is a Lonely Hunter
22. Eventide
23. Paco’s Story
24. Daughters of the North
25. Winged Creatures
26. The Children of Hurin
27. Rising from the Plains
28. Aquamarine
29. The Kommandant’s Girl
30. The Bell Jar
31. Mary Poppins
32. A Great and Terrible Beauty
33. The News from Paraguay
34. A Voyage Long and Strang
35. Travels with Charley
36. The Children of Men
37. The Toynbee Convector
38. Made in the U.S.A.
39. The Story of a Marriage
40. Dear American Airlines
41. Giants in the Earth
42. I Am Legend
43. Never Let Me Go
44. The Somnambulist
45. The Art of Racing in the Rain
46. The Bookseller of Kabul
47. The Girl With No Shadow
48. A Confederacy of Dunces
49. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
50. The Last Imaginary Place
51. The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
52. Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell

These are all books that are already on my Goodreads TBR list. I own a few of them already and it’ll be nice to get them down off the shelf. There is a sprinkling of non-fiction and award winners in there also, but I really just picked things that appealed to me.
