Winter Reading Challenge

The Winter Reading Challenge runs from December 21st, 2008 through March 20, 2009. There are 13 weeks in Winter and I will probably end up reading one to two books per week. Some of the books may cross over into challenges that begin 2009.
This is going to be a very casual challenge much like the Fall Reading Challenge, so please join me.

The rules are very flexible:

1) Choose any number of books you would like to read and post them on your blog.

2) They can be fiction and/or nonfiction including e-books and audiobooks

3) They can overlap with other challenges.

4) To sign up, click here. (Hosted by My Two Blessings)

This is going to be easy [I Hope!], there are 13 weeks and if I read 2 books a week, I should be able to do 26 books :) BUT! what if I can't??
So here is my list :)

  1. King’s Fool by Margaret Campbell Barnes

  2. Sam’s Quest for the Crimson Crystal by Ben Furman

  3. Christmas Carol By Charles Dickens

  4. Jane Eyre - started Reading
  5. Hogfather
  6. Thank You, Jeeves
  7. The Reluctant Fundamentalist
  8. The Healing
  9. The Broker - reading
  10. Sam's Letters to Jennifer
  11. Blood Memory
  12. Mosaic
That should be it :)

Thanks to J Kaye and Beth F, that's where I got my info :)

Remember to,


It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

Thats a great list. I guess you will be able to finish Christmas Carol and Sams letters...pretty quickly. Reluctant fundamentalist??? Well, let us know how it goes. Also, Jane Eyre. I need a strong motivation to start reading it.

I was not supposed to be signing up for more challenges but now I have no choice! Anyway, I read "Blood Memory' and it really is a good book. Greg Iles is one of the best thriller writers today.
