I think this is such a nice way to honour Dewey's love of books. Thank you Chris and Robin for hosting it. The challenge runs throughout 2009 and I'm going with Option 2, which is to read 5 books that Dewey reviewed. (Click on the button for more info).
Dewey had great taste in books and there are plenty of reviews on her blog of books that I'd like to read. I already have quite a few of them in my TBR piles, and I'll most likely choose from them for the challenge. There are some others too though that I don't yet own but that are on my wishlist, so I may end up reading some of those instead. But here are some of the ones that I already have waiting for me and that I really would like to read next year.
After Dark - Haruki Murakami
The Graveyard Book - Neil Gaiman
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian - Sherman Alexie
The Book of Lost Things - John Connolly
Helpless - Barbara Gowdy
The Invention of Hugo Cabret - Brian Selznick
A Thousand Splendid Suns - Khaled Hosseini
Purple Hibiscus - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Everything is Illuminated - Jonathan Safran Foer
I've heard good things about all of them. So which one should I read first?
