As I mentioned the other day, there is a challenge that one of my friends introduced me to at the turn of the year. I like to put myself behind the 8 ball, so I decided to start a month later. It might take me out of the contest, but I think that the real challenge is held within oneself. To hold myself accountable, I have decided to post my choices here since my other blog is always woefully neglected. :(
To Be Read:
Children of God-Mary Doria Russell
Alice's Adventure in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass-Lewis Carrol
Mere Christianity-C.S. Lewis
Heaven-Randy C. Alcorn
The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I here For?-Rick Warren

Gang Leader for a Day: A Rogue Sociologist Takes to the Streets-Sudhir Venkatesh
A Wrinkle in Time-Madeleine L'Engle
Me Talk Pretty One Day-David Sedaris
East of Eden-John Steinbeck
The first two books on the list are books that I have almost completed. In the past, I was horrible about ready three, four, or five books at a time. While it wasn't a problem in terms of keeping track of what was going on in the books, it did mean that some titles got dropped in the middle or even toward the end. I now have a slightly more focused approach. In preparation for Children of God, I am currently rereading The Sparrow which is the first of the two books.
I found this while I was looking up some of the authors on Amazon.com. This is a technology that I might be able to get behind. I'd have to see it in action first, but the idea of being able to download books for a relatively good price and have up to 200 of them be easily transportable is pretty cool. Plus, there is always the bonus of not having to require all of the waste associated with the normal book making process.

(Thanks to my friends who offered their suggestions for good books to read. The blog took forever today. My apologies. It's been one of those days. Tomorrow, I'll post my alternate list for the TBR Challenge.)
