I found a new challenge through Wendy's blog. It's Unread Authors Challenge I have enough books lying around my house to find 6 that qualify. Plus I'll be getting 3 more (so far) for my book clubs. So, I have no doubt my list could be doubled by the time the challenge begins in September.
But for now, my books are:
1.) The Jungle by Upton Sinclair
2.) The Locket by Richard Paul Evans
3.) Rose's Garden by Carrie Brown
4.) The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
5.) Notes on a Scandal by Zoë Heller
6.) Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier
September can't get here soon enough. These look like some good books.
Update: February 29
I'm afraid I didn't stick to my list. I joined the 888 challenge and some of my books got reassigned. But since I have plenty of books I just tossed some into this. My final list is here. I got The Jungle and Rose's Garden. But I messed up and grabbed the wrong two books to finish the Fall into Reading 2008 Challenge. So I substitted the two I missed here. They were Frankenstein and Playing for Pizza. And for forgotten reasons I rouded out with Shoot the Moon and A Widow for One Year.
Lots of good books on this list.
