I've been having such a hard time deciding which books to choose for the challenges, but finally here is my list for bookfool's lovely, flexible Chunkster Challenge. (click image for link to the Chunkster Challenge Guidelines).
Click HERE for the list of participants.
January 1st - June 30th, 2007
Of the following my official goal is to finish at least 4 of them. To help ensure that happens, the first 4 overlap with either the Classics Challenge, or the TBR Challenge (my list for that will be up soon). The additional titles are a few of the other Chunksters that have also been on the pile for too long. I'm being optimistic, but if things are going well, I'd like to read a couple of these too, and make it one a month for a total of 6. And wouldn't it be great if I could finish all of them this year? (sigh) But we all know how that goes..
