100+ Reading Challenge

The third and so far final reading challenge I'm joining in 2010 is the 100+ Reading Challenge .
I am yet to read a hundred books in a year, so this could get really interesting. I am part of 2 book groups so there's 20 books there and with 6 from the Art History Challenge and some from the Aussie Author Challenge, I think I'm getting a good way there. Thank goodness for crossovers between challenges!

The rules of the 100+ challenge is to read over 100 books from 1st January to 31st December 2010. They can be in any format, but individual short stories or books of the Bible don't count.

I'll list my 100 read books at Library Thing and include the list down the side of my blog.

So far my TBR list includes:
Woman in White - Wilkie Collins
Frankenstein - Mary Shelley
Spare room - Helen Garner
Brave new world - Aldus Huxley
Captain Corelli’s mandolin - Louis de Bernieres
The kite runner - Khaled Hosseini
Leopard - Guiseppe di Lampedusa
Saturday - Ian McEwan
Oscar & Lucinda - Peter Carey
Let me sing you gentle songs - Linda Olsson
Never let me go - Kazuo Ishiguro
Reluctant Fundamentalist - Moshin Hamid
The grapes of wrath - John Steinbeck
Notes on a scandal - Zoe Heller
We need to talk about Kevin - Lionel Shriver
From the land of green ghosts - Pascal Khoo Thwe
Oryx & Crake - Margaret Atwood
Snow country - Yasunari Kawabata
People of the book - Geraldine Brooks
Dracula - Bram Stoker

  1. Great reading list here - Oryx and Crake is on my wishlist right now too. I read Brave New World a while ago, definitely a classic.
