I've signed up for another reading challenge. I know, I know, I'm crazy to even try. But this one seems really doable. I only have to read one book a month, and I get to choose from those books on my To Be Read list. You know, the ones that I've been wanting to read foever (well, for at least 6 months anyway). My list isn't etched in stone--if I don't finish my other challenge, I'll probably transfer those books to this challenge. And I might do some substitutions depending on my moods, which is why I'm including an alternates/extras list, too. But this is what I've decided on for now:
On Writing Well by William ZinsserFinished 1/31/07 The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim EdwardsFinished 3/15/07
- The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd
Me & Emma by Elizabeth FlockFinished 6/24/07 Any Place I Hang My Hat by Susan IsaacsFinished 9/25/07

I'm setting my heights high, but it would be nice if I could finish all of these books in 2007. Of course, those lists don't include any of the books I've added to my TBR list in the last 6 months, or any that I might come across during the year.
