3M's Goals for 2009

I was very happy that I read 12 notable titles in 2008, but I have a lot of other perpetual challenges I'm participating in, so I'm only committing to 6 in 2009. I'll probably read more than that, but I'll stick with at least a minimum of 6.

  1. Finn by Jon Clinch (2008 ALA)
  2. Petropolis by Anya Ulinich (2007 CSM)
  3. Mistik Lake by Martha Brook (2007 PW)
  4. Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junor Diaz (2007 NYT)
  5. The View from Castle Rock by Alice Munro (2007 NYT)
  6. Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill (2007 PW)
  7. The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti (2008 NYT)
  8. The Help by Kathryn Stockett (2009 CSM)
  9. The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters (2009 NYT)
  10. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (2008 PW)
  11. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (2009 PW)

  • The Plague of Doves, by Louise Erdrich
  • The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, by David Wroblewski
