My challenge for 2010

I am challenging myself to read ten books from the notable lists in 2010. The books I have chosen so far:


Strength in What Remains, by Tracy Kidder
Cheever: A Life, by Blake Bailey


Too Much Happiness, by Alice Munro
Middlesex, by Jeffrey Eugenides
His Illegal Self, by Peter Carey
Descarte's Bones, by Russell Shorto
The View from Castle Rock, by Alice Munro

I will update this to a total of ten - or beyond - as I work through the lists.

December 5, 2010:

I have read one of the above! I am currently reading three from the lists:

Brightsided by Barbara Ehrenreich
Absurdistan by Gary Shteyngart
Circling my Mother, by Mary Gordon

So far this year I have read:

There is no me without you, by Melissa Faye Greene
The View from Castle Rock, by Alice Munro
The Maytrees, by Annie Dillard

Not a wonderful showing this year!
