TBR Challenge 2011

I completed the TBR Challenge in 2009 and enjoyed it very much. So, I decided to do another round.

What is the TBR Challenge?

** Pick 12 books – one for each month of the year - 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, read one of these books from your list each month, ending December 31. )

Planned Books:

Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift
The Witching Hour by Ann Rice
Coffee Will Make You Black by April Sinclair
Ain't Gonna Be The Same Fool Twice by April Sinclair
Freshwater Road by Denise Nicholas
The Color of Family by Patrica Jones
The Hand That's Dealt by Rosalind Coats
The Fifth Vial by Michael Palmer
The Warmest December by Bernice L. McFadden
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
The Subtle Knife by Philip Pulman

Alternates: (9 with room to put 3 more)
