Cait (clickcait) | 480 comments Yay! Someone else reading The Lord of the Rings for the trilogy. I'm hoping the discussion thread will be busy during those weeks.

I'm also leaning towards A Christmas Carol for my Christmas book. :-) Looks like a good list.

Good luck with the challenge.

Ana A (anabana_a) | 414 comments Most of the books you have are ones that I've enjoyed in the past, like A Wrinkle in Time, Holes, Lord of the Flies.. I hope you'll like them, too.

And good luck with your list!
