OK. As far as I can tell, it is not 2008 yet. But I have an ever-growing stack of books that are to read, and so I will add them here in the hopes that 2008 will actually call them read. OK? Then, you can hold my feet to the fire. Deal?

What I hope to read: (December 2007, with the realization that this is not a static list):

Mirror Mirror by Gregory Maguire
The Looking Glass War by John Le Carre
Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes (reread)
What's Eating Gilbert Grape by Peter Heges
Nature Girl by Carl Hiaasen
Practical Magic by Alice hoffman
The Scarlet LEtter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Rebecca by Daphne duMaurier
Auntie Mame by Patrick Dennis
The Owl and Moon Cafe by Jo-Ann Mapson
Tess of the d'Ubervilles by William E. Buckler
A Spot of Bother by Mark Haddon
Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
Malinche by Laura Esquivel

K. more in a minute -- gotta reshelve and then unshelve . . .

Stef (buch_ratte) | 5 comments How many of those books have you read so far?????
I know you have just over two months before the year is over and a person can read a lot of books in that time but I still wanna know how far you are with your list.

Yeah, just a few of them. I actually forgot this list. This morning I finished a book (Graveyard Book) and didn't know where to go next, so back to favorite author Christopher Moore. But I did read some of them -- Running with Scissors, Rant (I didn't finish it), The Alchemist's Daughter, Almost Moon, Spook. But I did read Anna Karenina. That was wowie.

How about you?
