1% Well-Read Challenge

Read 10 books in 10 months from the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die list. I think I will be able to finish this. The challenge began May 1 and runs through the end of February 2009. I am already keeping track of my books read for this list, and I just finished one today, Cranford, which I will count towards the challenge total, so nine more to go. As of right now, I have read 83 books which sets me at 8.29%. Here is a long list of possible reads. This list which will undoubtedly change as I cross post and read on a whim:

  • Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell (completed)
  • Count of Mone Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
  • Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky.
  • The Kreutzer Sonata by Leo Tolstoy
  • The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
  • Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
  • Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy
  • Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie
  • Beloved by Toni Morrison
  • Summer by Edith Wharton
  • Atonement by Ian McEwan
  • Tess of the Ubervilles by Thomas Hardy
  • The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark
  • The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco
  • The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
  • Don Quixote by Cervantes
  • Bleak House by Charles Dickens
