Fall Into Reading 2009

This competition sounds fun and interesting. I have off late only been able to read a book a month and am setting myself a realistic target. So between now and December 20th I will be reading the following books.

1. A Quickening Maze – Adam Fould
2. Brother’s Karamazov – Dostoevesky
3. The Letters of Vincent Van Gogh – Mark Roskill
4. Temples of South India – Ambujam Anantharaman (To be deleted)
5. Thus Spoke Zarathustra – Nietzsche
6. Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc – Mark Twain
7. Architecture of Happiness – Alain De Botton

8. Norwegian Wood – Murakami (New)

9. Chicken with Plums – Marjane Satrapi (Animated Novel)

I also need to read all of the National Geogrpahic magazines that I have neglected from June 2009 onwards. Would also like to throw in the Paris Review.

This would be my reading challenge.

    1. Yeah Nina. A late response. But I am mostly captivated by the photography and keen eye for detail. Hope to develop it as a hobby someday. Happy reading.

    1. Thank you Katrina for hosting!! I have already finished one book early last week. Will be posting something on my blog soon. please do read it if you get the time.

  1. My first challenge I too kept my list short, but once joining the challenge I felt compelled to read more.

    I haven’t heard of any of those books, hope you leave a review or two.

    Happy reading.

  2. Hey I understand. I have kept my list short on purpose. I am a lawyer by profession and generally have no time to read beyond work. This time however I want to get back in the groove. Will leave a short review as and when I finish a book. Happy reading.

  3. I like your list. I have a goal to read at finish 50 new books I’m definitely going to add some on my “to read” list on goodreads.com

    1. p.s. as a science major I didn’t really read a lot of books for fun so I like to look at people’s reading list to see what to read next.
