Hi, fellow BFB fans - good luck with the 2020 Challenge!

BFBs already on my shelves and/or audiobook library include:

Remembrance of Things Past by Marcel Proust
A Dance to the Music of Time by Anthony Powell
Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace
The Last Chronicle of Barset by Anthony Trollope
The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Buddenbrooks by Thomas Mann
Tristram Shandy by Laurence Stern
The Once and Future King by T H White
Daniel Deronda by George Elliot
Ulysses by James Joyce
The Magus by John Fowles
The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir

I'll aim for 10 BFBs in 2020. Other than Infinite Jest (which I've started and would like to think I'll finish) I'm not going to be specific about which of these I'll read - they're all very worthy but sometimes I need a break from worthy.

Thanks all, lovely to see you too!

Reporting my first BFB of 2020: Labyrinth by Kate Mosse, 694 pp

A quick read and quite enjoyable at 3.7/5. Review on my 2020 ROOT Challenge thread.

Catch 22 by Joseph Heller 519pp. 5 stars for extremely clever satire and a structure that reveals the story gradually, over the course of the novel.

Been on my shelves for 35 years so it feels good to extract that particularly long ROOT :)

I think it's almost as long since I read this!
