1% Well Read Challenge

Michelle from 1 More Chapter is hosting the 1% Well-Read Challenge

The goal of this challenge is to read 10 books in 10 months from the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die list. For you non-math people, 10 out of 1001 is approximately 1%, hence the title. The challenge will run from May 1, 2008 through February 28, 2009. You may change your list at any time and cross-posting to other challenges is permitted. The only requirement is that your ten book choices must be on the 1001 List.
Here is my list:
  1. The Blind Assassin: Margaret Atwood (completed 5.12.08)

  2. Like Water for Chocolate: Laura Esquivel

  3. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime: Mark Haddon

  4. The Things They Carried: Tim O'Brien

  5. Veronika Decides to Die: Paulo Coelho

  6. The Awakening: Kate Chopin

  7. The Wasp Factory: Iain Banks

  8. Sula:Toni Morrison

  9. ?

  10. ?

I really liked The Things They Carried. It's a very moving book. I'll be curious to see what you think of it.

Have a great day!

I read The Curious Incident a couple of years ago, it was pretty good. Kate Chopin is wonderful, I'm hoping to reread The Awakening sometime soon, hope you enjoy it. I'm curious to read what you think of Veronika Decides To Die, it's on my TBR.
