(I am transferring this post from my old blog to my new – apologies if you have read it before)
Did I mention that I’m a bookaholic? I usually read at least two books a week, mostly non-fiction. The problem is that my eyes are bigger than my brain and I beg, borrow and buy more books than I can possibly read.
Hence my ‘To Be Read’ pile runneth over. Out of the bookshelves and over the floor of my bedroom and living room.
So, I have decided to enter the 2015 TBR Pile Challenge. A year-long challenge to read at least 12 books that have gathered dust on a bookshelf for over a year. Once read you write a post/review about each one and link back to your original post.
My 2015 TBR Pile Challenge List:
- The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
- Phenomenology of Perception by Maurice Merleau-Ponty
- Lucia Joyce: To Dance in the Wake by Carol Loeb Shloss
- A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
- The Outsider by Colin Wilson
- The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying by Sogyal Rinpoche
- Angela Carter’s Book of Fairy Tales
- The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins
- In Search of Lost Time – Volume 1 Swann’s Way by Marcel Proust
- The Island of the Day Before by Umberto Eco
My two alternatives in case I can’t make it through any of the above are –
- Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys
- Decline and Fall by Evelyn Waugh
There are monthly check-ins and mini-challenges along the way. So do pop over to roofbeamreader.com if you’re interested in joining in 🙂
