This is my first challenge. My Kindle is over loaded & unread. My storage unit holds over 60 boxes of books, but I brought 2 shelves to my temporary living location of those that had been on my TBR for more than 3 years and of course I'm adding weekly with the killer thrift store prices. Now if I could just stay off of the book tracking sites and facebook I could get more reading done.
I will be participating in the TIOLI Food / recipe cookbook challenge & that one will definitely go over 3 books.
1) Sarah's Key - Tatiana de Rosnay
2) If Today Be Sweet - Thrity Umrigar
3) One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd - Jim Fergus
1) The Girl with a Pearl Earring - Tracy Chevalier
2) Tall Grass - Sandra Dallas
3) The Virgin Blue - Tracy Chevalier
4) Heading Out to Wonderful - Robert Goolrick
The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory
The Queen's Fool by Philippa Gregory
The Six Wives of Henry VIII by Alison Weir
1) The Emperor of All Maladies - Siddhartha Mukherjee
2) 61 Hours - Lee Child
3) Room - Emma Donahue
1) THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE by STEIG LARSSON 1/18/12

If Today Be Sweet by Thrity Umrigar
The Satanic Verses bySalman Rushdie - a favorite author, ready to debunk the gossip mill
1) ALL CRY CHAOS by Leonard Rosen
2) Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie Alan Bradley, then I read 2 more follow ups
3) Faceless Killers by Henning Mankell - because I was aching for more Steig Larsson I researched similar Swedish writers. He is a crime writer and you will read similar streets and city names from Larsson.
1) "THERE ARE THINGS I WANT YOU TO KNOW" ABOUT STEIG LARSSON AND ME by Eva Gabrielsson 1/20/12
I really enjoyed reading Eva's story of her life with Steig and how he came to write The Millennium Trilogy. I'm appalled that she got nothing for her 32years with him & how his family who hardly knew him went against all of his principles. I have yet to read the 3rd book & am contemplating waiting to purchase it deeply discounted at used stores as not to line their pockets further. When I get a job I plan on sending what I can to Eva as mentioned in the back of the book to pay for my enjoyment as if Steig would've received royalties.
2) A Wolf at the Table by Augusten Burroughs
3) Possible Side Effects - Augusten Burroughs
4) Bossy Pants - Tina Fey
If I'm Missing or Dead by Janine Latus
My Horizontal Life by Chelsea Handler
Dry by Augusten Burroughs
