Challenge Books


It is just getting too crazy on my side bar with all the books being listed. Plus it is a bit overwhelming for me to see all those books staring me in the face. So decided to have one post with all the books and put it in my side bar. Will update it periodically, checking off as books are read or adding when acquire more books. If I join any more challenges (call me crazy) will list the books here.

  1. Ooooh. There are several on your list that I hope to get to also! Life of Pi, Sarah Palin, and War and Peace (when I'm feeling high and lofty!) just to name a couple.

    Looks like great fun!
