I came across the From the Stacks Winter Reading Challenge (via) which seemed right up my alley since I am a bit compulsive in my book buying. I'll accumulate with the intention of reading the title sooner rather than later but my neglect in some cases dates back YEARS.
Assuming the average cost of a book is $20 @ about 50 books....ACK! That's a lot of freakin' cashmere sweaters I could have been wearing!!
So the 5 books I have picked for this challenge are:
The Know-It-All - A.J. Jacobs
The Line of Beauty - Alan Hollinghurst
The Bonesetter's Daughter - Amy Tan
Disappearing Moon Cafe - Sky Lee
Instructions for Visitors - Helen Stevenson
I'm a couple chapters away from finishing Brick Lane so I can get started on this list soon....I have until Jan 31st to complete the challenge.
I will NOT fail!
