TBR Challenge 2008

[Edits to this post will take place over the course of 2008 as I update my list with dates books are finished and links to reviews I've written. If you are not interested in my challenge progress and reviews, please disregard updates of this post.]

Wednesday I posted my list of books for the 1st in a Series Challenge 2008. That particular challenge is to help me identify new series that I think I might want to read. Most of those titles are on my "to be read" list and have been sitting on my bookshelves for some time. I also have plenty of non-series reading that I'm interested in and have purchased at some time or another. Hence I am also going to participate in the TBR Challenge 2008, hosted by Mizbooks, in order to commit myself to reading some of those titles that are on my shelves and crying for my attention.

Here are my choices for the TBR Challenge 2008:

1. The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
finished 6/15/2008

2. The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

3. Atonement by Ian McEwan

  1. My list is finally ready. I just need to post it. I was going to wait until later next week, but I think I'll go post it now. :-)

    You've got a great list there! The Historian was one of my favorite reads last year. And I loved Pillars of the Earth. Atonement is really good as well. Clarke's book is definitely worth taking the time to read.

    I will definitely be curious to know how you find the books when you read them. They are quite long and I know not everyone has found that as enjoyable as I did.
