TBR Challenge

I have way to many books on my TBR list (over 200). I need to cut it down some. So, combined with some of the other challenges this one is prefect, because all the books overlap. I have a total of 18 books lined up for this challenge. Hopefully, I won't add any more books to my TBR pile (which is highly unlikely). This challenge (for 2009 for now) is being host by one of the groups on Shelfari. I am sure that someone in the Book Blog world will host it also. But I wanted to plan all my challenge list early, so I would know what books I need to order from the library and which ones I would have to buy.


** Pick 12 books - one for each month of 2009 - that you've been wanting to read (that have been on your "To Be Read" list) for 6 months or longer, but haven't gotten around to.
** OPTIONAL: Create a list of 12 "Alternates" (books you could substitute for your challenge books, given that a particular one doesn't grab you at the time)
** Then, starting January 1, 2009, read one of these books from your list each month, ending December 31, 2009. :o)

My First 12 Books:
The Awakening by LA Banks (Review)
The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan (Review)Beloved by Toni Morrison (Review)To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee (Review)Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neal Hurston (Review)
