Read Your Own Books Challenge

So I’ve taken the plunge and have decided to join another challenge for 2009! This one is all about reading the books you own. Since I actually own over half of the books I read, I’m twisting it a little – I’m going to pick 10 books that have been waiting patiently on my shelf for months, if not years and commit to reading them in 2009.

1. The Buenos Aires Broken Hearts Club – Jessica Morrison
2. The Post-Birthday World – Lionel Shriver
3. Frenemies – Megan Crane
4. The Fiction Class – Susan Breen
5. Katherine – Anya Seton
6. Abraham – Bruce Feiler
7. Complications – Atul Gawande
8. Fury – Salman Rushdie
9. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan – Lisa See
10 Mary, Queen of France – Jean Plaidy

I’ll be keeping track of this challenge in my sidebar. If you would like to participate as well, here is more information.

  1. Ah that is a good way to look at it. Books you’ve had for a long while! I may have to do this one…. not sure yet!

  2. i have fury sitting on my shelf too.. i started it a couple of times and never finished it.. maybe i should pick it up again sometime and see what it is about.

  3. Katherine is a must read! One of my favorite novels of all time. It sounds like a great challenge–there are tons of books on my shelves that have been sitting there patiently, waiting for me to read them.

  4. I’m glad you’re joining in this challenge Swapna. I’m going to do the same-pick some that have been on the shelf a good long while.

  5. I just took The Fiction Class back to the library. Wasn’t as pleased with it as I wanted to be. Hope you enjoy it more.

  6. Every time I OFFICIALLY say, OK I am GOING to READ THAT DAMNED BOOK…. nope, doesn’t happen.

    Others just get in the way, and the poor unread books huddle together and whine for attention casting accusing stares my way.

  8. I love this idea! After our second library book sale this month, my unread book shelves are in need of salvation. Thanks. šŸ˜‰
