Starzee | 106 comments Do I have all my life to complete this one? LOL These books are so not my cup of tea. But since I'm trying to broaden my horizons this would be a great challenge. I'm in.

Completed: 1/100

4 Harry Potter series - JK Rowling
5 To kill A mockingbird - Harper Lee

Not Completed: Everything else :P

Well, you can always say you just want to read 20 or them or something. Pick however many you want. There are some that I just have absolutely no interest in and others I've always wanted to read.


message 5: by Starzee (new)

Starzee | 106 comments Hmmm.. Yeah that sounds better. To start off with I might just pick 10 at a time from the list and try to read em.


message 6: by Heather (last edited Dec 08, 2010 06:55PM) (new)

Heather T (horrorvacui000) | 532 comments Mod
Starzee, since you're the only other one working on this with me, or thinking about it...is there anything that you'd like to read in January from the list with me? It'll be the BBC Top 100 choice. You don't have to, but I thought I'd see if you were interested before I just picked.


message 7: by Starzee (new)

Starzee | 106 comments hmmm sounds good.

How about The Wind in the Willows or Memoirs of a Geisha?


message 8: by Heather (new)

Heather T (horrorvacui000) | 532 comments Mod
That's fine. Do you have a preference?


message 9: by Starzee (new)

Starzee | 106 comments We could always read both =D


message 10: by Heather (new)

Heather T (horrorvacui000) | 532 comments Mod
Let's do The Wind in the Willows first, then Memoirs, but I'll start Memoirs in the last week of January. I just have a huge list to get through in January.


message 11: by Starzee (new)

Starzee | 106 comments Sounds good. I'll go and find them in the library then lol.

Can't wait to get stuck into some of these books. It will be a nice change from the usual YA or paranormal books I read.


message 12: by Heather (new)

Heather T (horrorvacui000) | 532 comments Mod
Let me know if your interested in historical fiction or not. We can rotate between the two threads if you want to do that challenge, or just stick with this one and I'll read the history one independently.
