20 Book Challenge Today-2/1/2010

Tonight during Earth Hour (if you don’t know what it is FIND OUT AND JOIN IN) I entertained myself by taking a walk through my neighborhood then going through the two bookshelves in my bedroom and comprising a list of books I haven’t read as of yet.
With this list I’ve decided to do a twenty book challenge.

Here’s the goal: read twenty books from this list of twenty-two by midnight of 2/1/2010. Ultimately I’d be happy if I read all twenty-two books by the end of December because then I would have achieved my goal of reading 50 books in a year (thus far I’ve read 28!) but I feel that reading shouldn’t be a challenge so much as enjoyable. And some of the books on this list I have tried to read in the past and lost interest with very quickly so I know they will certainly be a challenge.

So here is the list!
The Hobbit
The Silmarillion
Out Stealing Horses
Secrets of a Gay Marine Porn Star
Cold Mountain
Memoirs of a Geisha
Mermaids in the Basement
Son of a Witch
Life of Pi
Dragonfly in Amber
Great Expectations
The Chimes
The Cricket on the Hearth
Women in Love
The Red Badge of Courage
Mansfield Park
Jane Eyre
