Brina Good luck with the challenge, Tracey :)

Tracy O'Donnell | 3 comments ok... I have picked my books for the century challenge, trying to figure out which decade I'd like to focus on as well. Would love thoughts on the picks, it was fun to try to find them!

Aubrey (korrick) | 2515 comments The Woolf is one of my favorites, while the Plath, Butler, Walls, and Wilkerson are all solid reads. Highsmith is good in general, and Erdrich is decent. The Tavers and Smith I liked.
