Laura's 2008 Challenge List

In 2007, the NYT Notable Books Challenge was my introduction to the world of reading challenges, and I read 12 books from the 2006 NYT Notable Fiction list. I can’t resist Wendy’s 2008 Notable Books Challenge, which is so flexible as to allow reading from several different “notable books” lists. However, I also have several challenges and projects going, so I have only chosen books that were already on my TBR pile. Of course I reserve the right to add to or change this list over time!

2007 NYT Notable Books:
  • What is the What, the Autobiography of Valentino Achak Deng, by Dave Eggers (completed 3/18/2008 - review)
  • The Gathering, by Anne Enright (completed 4/2/2008 - review)
  • Out Stealing Horses, by Per Petterson (completed 7/13/2008 - review)
  • The Septembers of Shiraz, by Dalia Sofer (completed 7/20/2008 - review)
  • Brother, I’m Dying, by Edwidge Danticat (completed 7/23/2008 - review)
2007 ALA Notable Books:
  • The Secret River, by Kate Grenville (completed 2/3/2008 - review)
2007 Kiriyama Prize:
