12 Week Reading Challenge

Calling all Bibliophiles!! I am challenging myself to read 12 good books in 12 weeks. Anyone is welcome to join in the challenge and post your progress. I was re-reading Honey for a Woman's Heart and there were so many books mentioned that I started a list and from there decided to challenge myself to read 12 of them. Your reading challenge will be different--fiction or non-fiction, new or old, long or short--just post your progress and a thumbs up or down about each book. Have to see which are available from our local library and which I may have to get through Interlibrary Loan, and if all else fails get used from Amazon.com.

Here's my list:
Death Comes for the Archbishop by Willa Cather
Out of Africa by Isak Dinesen
House of Spirits by Isabel Allende
Something by Van Reid
Kristen Lavranhsdatter by Sigrid Undst
Stones from the River by Ursula Hegi
Number the Stars by Lois Lowery
The Ark by Margot Benary-Isbert
Scarlet Music by Joan Ohannesson
Something More by Catherine Marshall
A Beacon at Alexandria by Gillian Bradshaw
Rowan Farm by Margot Benary-Isbert
The Journal of Hildegard of Bingen by Barbara Lachman

I'll be starting my challenge today, April 25, 2010 with Out of Africa by Isak Dinesen. Join in the challenge or just post what you reading.

I'd love to. I'll let you know when my schedule for that week is posted.

(My book challenge never got off the ground since I was in the hospital and not feeling so good afterward.)
