I’m joining the To Be Read Challenge this year, reading those 12 pesky books on my TBR pile that I manage not to get to year-after-year finally in 2009.

Main list:

  1. The Brontes: A Life in Letters by Juliet Barker *
  2. Pleasure of Ruins by Rose Macaulay *
  3. The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
  4. The Rainbow by D.H. Lawrence*
  5. On the Damned Human Race by Mark Twain
  6. The Book of the New Sun (vol 1) by Gene Wolfe
  7. The Dragonbone Chair by Tad Williams Letters to a Young Poet by Rilke*
  8. Real Boys: Rescuing our sons from the myths of Boyhood by William Pollack, PhD.
  9. A God Who Looks Like Me: Discovering a Woman Affirming Spirituality by Patricia Lynn Reily*
  10. In the Devil’s Snare: The Salem Witchcraft Trials of 1692*
  11. The Chronicles of Amber (vol 1) by Roger Zelazny
  12. Queen’s Own Fool: a novel of Mary, Queen of Scots by Jane Yolen & Robert J. Harris

  2. The Stone of Farewell by Tad Williams – Special Topics in Calamity Physics
  3. Mind Siege by Tim Lahaye*
  4. Boyhood and Beyond by Bob Schultz
  5. The Brontes by Rebecca Fraser
  6. The Cat’s Pajamas by Ray Bradbury
  7. The Weighers of Souls by Andre Maurois

  10. Loud & Clear by Anna Quindlen
  11. More Wandering Stars: An Anthology of Jewish Fantasy & Science Fiction*
  12. The Book on the Bookshelf by Henry Petroski

So now I just have to decide where to start. 🙂

(Books crossed out are read, books with stars were started, but not finished, books with new titles next to them mysteriously disappeared during the year & had to be replaced with other books)
