The 2010 TBR Lite Challenge

My (very short) list of resolutions was originally intended to include “No more reading challenges until autumn.” But I forgot. And then I saw this:

TBR Lite Challenge

And due to my lighter-than-usual reading year in 2009, I have plenty of books to choose from. Conclusion? It’s fate. This challenge and I are meant to be. And since it would be churlish to fight destiny when it throws itself in my lap, I should make a list right away.

Ah, justification. One of my great talents :-)

That list is adaptable, since I’m choosing Option B, and it currently includes:

The Painted Duchess - Anne Bruck
The Wedding Officer - Anthony Capella
The Collector - John Fowles
The Secret Woman - Victoria Holt
Cruel as the Grave - Sharon Penman
All the King’s Men - Robert Penn Warren

The Victoria Holt has been on my TBR pile for so long I can’t even remember how long it’s been on my TBR pile! Perhaps that should be one of the first books I read.

I really liked The Wedding Officer when I read it a while ago.

That's not justification, it's destiny! :P

Marg: The Wedding Officer is proving very enticing, even though I said I'd read the Victoria Holt first! I think I might have to deal with temptation by giving in to it and getting it out of the way.

Jenny: And that is precisely the opinion I wanted to hear!
