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
1984
Life of Pi
Dragonfly in Amber
Great Expectations
The Chimes
The Cricket on the Hearth
Women in Love
The Red Badge of Courage
Dracula
Mansfield Park
Jane Eyre
Emma
-----
Eragon
Eldest
