This is my third year signing up for this challenge and it is one of my favorites. I love that it exposes me to books that I'd not have encountered any other way, and also to books that I've always meant to read. My first year I chose random titles that caught my eye, last year I went for really old titles, and this year I'm focusing on the more modern titles:
- Out of Africa - reading this one now
- The Handmaid’s Tale
- Catch 22 - also for the LOST Books Challenge
- The Color Purple – I'm considering a summer read-a-long; might you be interested?
- To Kill A Mockingbird - can you believe I've never read this?
- Kim (Rudyard Kipling)
- The Golden Ass (Apulieus)
- The Last of the Mohicans - I started this last year but put it aside
- Dangerous Liaisons
- Half of a Yellow Sun
- The Lion of Flanders - I couldn't find this one last year but really want to read it
- The Charterhouse of Parma
- Wide Sargasso Sea
Are you signing up for this one as well? Have you done it before? Would you like to read any of these with me?
Also, I preordered a copy of the new edition of the actual book 1,001 Books You Must Read Before You Die; it comes out in March and I'm really excited about it!
