This is a challenge I might be able to pull off along with all the other things I need to do.

You're going to love The Grapes of Wrath (if you don't already). It's my second favorite book. East of Eden trumps it.

ugh! i hated the grapes of wrath. i loved a lot of other steinbeck stuff though, tortilla flat, for example.. whatever. anyway, good luck, i am currently trying to make a list of books to get from the library with my new card! i got a handful of Patterson books (the ones that are the basis for the TV show Women's Murder Club), since i like the show i thought i'd give the books a chance.. years ago i may have had a good list of what to read but now, well i just dont know anymore.. i got W. Cather's O Pioneers! and read it already..

What?!? No Jane Austen??

It is supposed to be a challenge. To read something you would not normally read!

Anyway, I didn't pick the books. Of course, I still haven't even gotten acopy of this months book yet. I will download it from the library, probably.
