From the Stacks Winter Challenge

Starting From 1st November 2006 ~ 30th January 2007

What the heck. I've been doing the lonewolf thing too long. So, decided to put myself out and actually join something. This morning I signed up for the From the Stacks Winter Challenge. It seems - do-able.

From Overdue Books, these are the rules:

So for this challenge we would be reading 5 books that we have already purchased, have been meaning to get to, have been sitting on the nightstand and haven't read before. No going out and buying new books. No getting sidetracked by the lure of the holiday bookstore displays.

The 5 books I've chosen for the challenge:

1. A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway
2. The Names of Things: Life, Language, and Beginnings in the Egyptian Desert by Susan Brind Morrow
3. The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
4. Colette: Secrets of the Flesh by Judith Thurman
5. Death and the Dervish by Mesa Selimovic

Let us begin!

Nice list! I just finished the Colette bio a while ago and liked it a lot.

Thanks! I've been reading some of the things you wrote on Thurman's bio on Colette. It encouraged me to pick up the book ASAP. ;)

These books have been sitting on my shelves (and on my floor) for ages!
