Challenge Wrap-up: 1% Well-Read Challenge

The idea of this challenge was to read 10 books in 10 months from the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die list (i.e.; 1% of the list). These are my ten books:
  1. Oscar and Lucinda, by Peter Carey (completed 5/6/2008 - review)
  2. Midnight's Children, by Salman Rushdie (completed 5/8/2008 - review)
  3. The Return of the Soldier, by Rebecca West (completed 6/24/2008 - review)
  4. Possession, by A.S. Byatt (completed 7/6/2008 - review)
  5. The Old Man and the Sea, by Ernest Hemingway (completed 8/9/2008 - review)
  6. Embers, by Sandor Marai (completed 9/13/2008 - review)
  7. Persuasion, by Jane Austen (completed 12/6/2008 - review)
  8. A Fine Balance, by Rohinton Mistry (completed 1/19/2009 - review)
  9. Pursuit of Love and Love in a Cold Climate, by Nancy Mitford (completed 2/6/2009 - review)
  10. A Severed Head, by Iris Murdoch (completed 2/10/2009 - review)
I enjoyed many of the books on this list; Persuasion and A Fine Balance were particular favorites.  Thanks to 3M/Michelle's for hosting this challenge!

Well done! I don't think I'm going to get through this one. I still have 3 more to read and it doesn't look good.

Congrats, Laura!

Persuasion is my favorite Austen. I'd like to get to Possession sometime this year.
