Now, how could I have missed this?

....Oh, yeah. I was otherwise involved!!!

Anyway, Miz Booshay over at Quiet Life has a link on her sidebar for Summer Reading Challenge 2006. A blog-friend of hers decided to run a challenge--for people to either read a certain number of books, or books of a certain genre, or, or, or.....just whatever--the challenge is open to the challengee!

I'm too late to register for the challenge, but I'm stealing a button and making my list anyway! How could I possibly ignore a book challenge? Besides, I'm claiming a hardship exemption from the rules!

So, drumroll please, here is:

MamaT's Summer Reading Challenge List

First, I want to finish some books that I have in-process, but that have been sitting for a long time:

The Clearing by Tim Gatreaux
Nobody's Fool by Richard Russo
Making Sense of Movies by Robert Henry Stanley

Second, I have two books to read for the Inkblots, my book club:

The Silver Chalice by Thomas Costain
The Edge of Sadness by Edwin O'Connor

Third, the book I am most looking forward to:

The Last Good Woman by William Luse (yep, the one you're thinking of!)

Fourth, all the others:

In the Company of Cheerful Ladies by Alexander McCall Smith
An Episode of Sparrows by Rumer Godden
Captain Blood by Rafael Sabatini
The Rise of Silas Lapham by William Dean Howells

Please note: All these books are off my shelf. I hereby vow not to enter Half Price Books for the remainder of the summer. I have realized, to my utter dismay, that I could read for the next several years simply off my own shelves......



Love your list!

Welcome and I will keep you to your promise :o)

My friend is also doing one. oh the little one is up!
