This is one of the challenges I was waiting for, so I am excited to announce that I am joining in on Adam's (Roof Beam Reader) TBR Challenge for 2012! I am currently participating in the 2011 Challenge, and while I am slightly behind (I am currently reading book 7 of 12), I know I want to join in for another year. You can go to the link above to see the specific instructions. I love that Adam motivates his participants with prizes (even though I won't qualify this year if I don't get my butt in gear!).
Participants are allowed to choose 12 books and 2 alternates (just in case). Like my 2011 list, I wanted to include a mix of titles-challenging reads and books I am looking forward to (all are classics). I think my list reflects that.
Here it is.
Allie's 2012 TBR Challenge List-12 Books:
- Volpone by Ben Johnson
- Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyon
- Tom Jones by Henry Fielding
- Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
- Main Street by Sinclair Lewis
- The Voyage Out by Virginia Woolf
- Clarissa by Samuel Richardson
- David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
- A Passage to India by E.M. Forster
- Brighton Rock by Graham Greene
- The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo
- Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak
- The Scarlet Pimpernel by Emmuska Orczy
- I Know why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
I think I created a fairly challenging list, but I am excited to get started! Who else is participating?
