Good for you for wrapping this up! I think I still have one or two more books to go.
well, I chose a low level, that was easy enough, am on a role this year, I’ve already read 46 books, and my 2010 total was around 65…
I doing this challenge too! I read The Invisible Man for it and a few others. This time period produced so many great books!
Yes! I see you offer Sedaris’s last book. I have to say: I LOVE Sedaris, but I was soooo disappointed by that book, not funny at all. other book bloggers I knnow have had the same experience. Here is what I wrote about it: https://wordsandpeace.wordpress.com/2010/10/23/squirrel-seeks-chipmunk/
Thanks for leaving a comment
Congrats on finishing! I just started it. I noticed that you are reading The Innocents Abroad. How is it? I love Twain!
well, I just did a low level, too many other challenges going on. what other books do you plan to read for this? The Innocents Abroad. I love Twain and hate him at the same time. He’s very very sarcastic in this book even more then in any other book I read by him, and I read a lot. But from time to time, you find in it a genuine note of admiration at what he sees. i’m slow at it, reading it as ebook. I’m glad I found your beautiful and original blog. I just posted a special post on Bastille Day a few mn ago, with 10 titles on France – I’m French, so I had too! LOL
I love Twain’s sarcasm. I don’t think I could have been married to him, but I love his writing.
Below is the list of books I plan on reading for the challenge.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Middlemarch by George Eliot
Silas Marner by George Eliot
The Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
The Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy
Oh God, married to Twain, I can’t even imagine LOL. wow, ambitious list. I tried Middlemarch and gave up I’m ashamed to say. I love The Heart of Darkness. Thanks for the conversation
His wife must have been a saint! I have to read Middlemarch. Its on my 1001 list.
Hello! Congrats for completing the challenge! I hope you enjoyed it – that’s a really interesting list you had there.
