The goal of this challenge is to read 10 books in 10 months from the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die list. For you non-math people, 10 out of 1001 is approximately 1%, hence the title. The challenge will run from May 1, 2008 through February 28, 2009.

Here are the ten books I am selecting now - that may change!
1. Vanishing Point - David Markson
2. Everything is Illuminated - Jonathan Safran Foer
3. The Emigrants - W.G. Sebald
4. Wild Swans - Jung Chang
5. The Things They Carried - Tim O'Brien
6. Sexing the Cherry - Jeanette Winterson
7. The Satanic Verses - Salman Rushdie
8. Cranford - Elizabeth Gaskell
9. Amelia - Henry Fielding
10. The Pilgrim's Progress - John Bunyan
Think about joining us - if I finish these ten I will be up to a whopping 7.59% of the 1001 Books You Should Read Before you Die. According to the chart, I need to read 35 of these books each year to get them done before I die - or have an exceptionally longer than average life!
