Katherine (kathldk) | 141 comments Ok, ya know what? Fuggeddabout chronological order. I'm going to finish the list in the order in which I finish it. But I *will* get to 200 this year! Will probably go with the 1001 books list's group's reading list, which gives me about 2 weeks per book (eep - War and Peace in two weeks? OUCH!). Let's do this.

Right now I'm on 113.

Katherine (kathldk) | 141 comments I've got to ration my reading or I won't get any work done, so I've basically picked a book for every 5 days or so - roughly how long it take me to finish a 500-600 page novel). Hopefully some of these will work for challenges. They're all from the Boxhall "1001 books to read before you die" list(s).
