Fall Into Reading Challenge

I saw this challenge over at Bermuadonion's blog and thought it would be a good way for me to sort through my reading list for this fall :) The challenge is called Fall Into Reading and all I have to do is make a list of my books for this most glorious time of year. Most of these are helping me work towards another challenge or are book club picks. And here we go :)

1. Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader by Anne Fadiman
2. Founding Mothers by Cokie Roberts
3. How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents by Julia Alvarez
4. The Bell Jar by Slyvia Plath
5. Silas Marner by George Eliot
6. The Road by Cormac McCarthy
7. Life After Genius by M. Ann Jacoby
8. The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
9. The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman

Of course, surely other books will come along, but I'm aiming to get all these read. Should be a pleasure :)

Haven't read a lot of these, but I thought History of Love was fantastic... you're in for a treat!

You have an interesting list there! The Road is so memorable! I'll be reading The Zookeeper's Wife soon for a book club--I've read only good reviews of it so far!

YAY! Silas Marner!! I should do this challenge. I am being VERY slow right now. Maybe now that all my visitors are leaving I'll have more time.
