| | Comments (3)

Well, we settled it last night and it's now official. If'n you want to read along, here's what you need to read:

January: Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
February: Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
March: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Hadden
April: The Color of Water by James McBride
May: Parnassus on Wheels by Christopher Morley
June: Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome
July: Sister of My Heart by Chita Divakaruni
August: The Ball and the Cross by G. K. Chesterton
September: Gilead: A Novel by Marilynne Robinson
October: City of Bells by Elizabeth Goudge
November: Deafening: A Novel by Frances Itani
December: (two things) A Child's Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas AND A Redbird Christmas by Fannie Flagg

On my personal list for this year, but not on the "official" list:

The Next Step in the Dance and The Clearing both by Tim Gatreaux
Poland by James Michener
The Endless Knot by William L. Biersach
Little Altars Everywhere by Rebecca Wells
Risk Pool by Richard Russo
Jonathon Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susannah Clarke


Well...I think I might just do that :o)
Thank you for the invitation!

You have some good books on that list. I remember my sixth grade teacher recommending Three Men in a Boat -- and I've never read it! Will be curious as to how the discussion goes for Mansfield Park. It is an intriguing book.

Hmmm. I still think MFK Fisher is in order, if you are going to eat good soup. Chesterton requires scotch, not soup!
