Diane  | 2041 comments This year I'm taking a different approach. These all have to be books I already own (I had an uncomfortable library wait for one last year) and books that were previous group reads that I haven't yet read for this group and other groups. Some of these are longer than I would like, but I think I need that extra push to get them read:

1. Pricksongs and Descants
2. The Black Prince
3. The Woodlanders
4. Grimus
5. Antic Hay
6. Neuromancer
7. The Talented Mr. Ripley
8. Ivanhoe
9. The Iron Heel
10. The House in Paris
11. White Noise
12. American Pastoral
13. A Farewell to Arms
14. Lucky Jim
15. Caleb Williams
16. Fingersmith
17. Quo Vadis
18. Nicholas Nickleby
19. Of Human Bondage
20. Kafka on the Shore
21. The Tin Drum
22. Dead Babies
23. A Passage to India
24. The Ravishing of Lol Stein

Kristel (kristelh) | 4106 comments Mod
I only do books I already own for this challenge. If I ever get all the ones I own done, then I might add ones I don't own. I've read 20 of your books.

Daisey | 255 comments I hardly own any books from the list, so I'm still working mostly from classics and books that are easily available from my library for this challenge. I guess if I'm going to keep at this, I need to start collecting a few more. Looks like an interesting list!
