Another Challenge

So I joined another challenge. An attempt to work on my 1001 Books list. Also, as i was trying to come up with books for this i realized i had read The Maltese Falcon so i am up to 69 read. In the immortal words of Ted (Theodore) Logan: DUDE! So my new challenge is the Armchair Traveler challenge. As i NEED to get away but can't right now, i figure it might help.

As this one is for 6 books and ends December 31 (i am starting 3 months in) i am going to cheat a teeny tiny bit. Rebecca fits perfectly; Manderley is a driving character and the reason our heroine meets our hero. So it will be considered my first book for the challenge. The rest are:
  • On the Road by Jack Kerouac
  • Playing for Pizza by John Grisham
  • A Passage to India by E.M. Forster
  • Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
  • Arrow of God by Chinua Achebe
I am not normally a Grisham fan but since this one is football related i signed up for it at the library. I am 67th in line for one of 37 copies so it will probably be later in the year that i may get to it. I have wanted to read Kerouac for a while but just never got around to it. The Forster and Achebe i haven't heard of at all and i didn't get around to watching Memoirs of a Geisha so i am pretty open-minded on that one too.

Currently: adding another couple books to the library list now.
