Challenge Update

A quick update on one of my 2011 reading challenges: With the completion of The Welsh Girl I am halfway through the challenge, issued by The Roof Beam Reader.

The 2011 TBR (To Be Read) Pile Challenge is to read 12 books from your to-be-read pile in 12 months. The challenge began in February, so I am in good position after three months, although three of the largest books remain to be read.

This is where I stand:

1. Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry
2. Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
3. War and Peace by Mr. Tolstoy
4. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
5. The Darkness That Comes Before by R. Scott Bakker
6. Under the Dome by Stephen King
7. White Noise by Don Delillo
8. Yogi Berra Eternal Yankee by Allen Barra
9. The Welsh Girl by Peter Ho Davies
10. Winter in the Blood by James Welch
11. Human Croquet by Kate Atkinson
12. Emotionally Weird by Kate Atkinson

Alternates:
Reservation Road by John Burnham Schwartz
Tales of Burning Love by Louise Erdrich

  1. I eagerly anticipate your thoughts on War and Peace and Harry Potter (two of my all-time favorites), as well as Gone With the Wind (haven't read it yet, though I own the book and have received many recommendations for it - it might make next year's TBR Pile list!)
