Books

Every year, I set a reading goal for myself — I never reach it. This year, it was 50 books. I’m 8 short. Hmpf.

In 2008, I’m participating in a TBR (To-Be-Read) Challenge. I have to choose 12 books that have been languishing on my shelves, waiting to be read. Here’s my list (to be read in no particular order):

1. House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
2. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
3. As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner
4. The Book of Illusions by Paul Auster
5. The Dharma Bums by Jack Kerouac
6. Ironweed by William Kennedy
7.The 158-Pound Marriage by John Irving
8. The House of the Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne
9. 1984 by George Orwell
10. The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven by Sherman Alexie
11. Fluke by Christopher Moore
12. Black Boy by Richard Wright

Alternates:
1. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
2. Maggie Cassidy by Jack Kerouac
3. Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
4. Adam Bede by George Eliot
5. Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs

I’m looking forward to getting started!
