The challenge for 2011: Charles Dickens. So far, I've read 5 of his novels: Great Expectations, David Copperfield, A Tale of Two Cities, Oliver Twist and A Christmas Carol. If I read 12 more of his novels (1/month) I will have read ALL of his novels.
So, in 2011 I will try to read:
The Pickwick Papers (Finished)
Martin Chuzzlewit (Finished)
Nicholas Nickleby (Finished)
Hard Times (Finished)
Barnaby Rudge (Finished)
Christmas Books (The Chimes, The Cricket on the Hearth, etc.)(Finished)
The Old Curiousity Shop
Bleak House (Finished, January 4, 2012)
Our Mutual Friend
The Mystery of Edwin Drood (Finished)
Dombey and Son
Well, as you can see, I didn't read all 12 of the books on my list, but I did get through 7 of them in 2011, and one more-- Bleak House-- by January, 2012. Considering most of the novels were 700-900 pages long, I think I did fairly well!
