Rebecca's Progress

I’m excited to join this challenge. I don’t like deadlines, and this doesn’t have one.

Here are the books I’ve read in the past:
1999 - The Hours (Cunningham)
1995 - The Stone Diaries (Shields)
1994 - The Shipping News (Proulx)
1989 - Breathing Lessons (Tyler)
1988 - Beloved (Morrison)
1961 - To Kill a Mockingbird (Lee)
1951 - The Town (Richter)

Books I just finished (reviews to come)
2006 - March (Brooks)
2000 - Interpreter of Maladies (Lahiri)

Books I want to read next (in no particular time frame)
1921 - The Age of Innocence (Wharton)
1972 - Angle of Repose (Stegner)
1947 - All the King’s Men (Warren)
1953 - The Old Man and the Sea (Hemingway)
1940 - The Grapes of Wrath (Steinbeck)
1932 - The Good Earth (Buck)
1918 - His Family (Poole)
1919 - The Magnificent Ambersons (Tarkington)

I should add that if I don’t like a book in the first 100 pages or so, I won’t finish it—there are too many books out there to spend time reading ones I don’t like. I hope that doesn’t apply to any of the Pulitzers of fiction!
