My Year of Reading Dangerously
I was too late to sign up for this last year, but here I am for the 2009 edition. It's a great idea - read 12 books that you deem dangerous, for whatever reason. For detailed information and rules, see the challenge post. It is hosted by Estella and runs from 1 January to 31 December 2009.
I'm listing possibles, rather than making a final list. :-)
Completed: 7/12 as of 27 October 2009

Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
Quo Vadis by Henryk Sienkiewicz
The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco
Lady Chatterley's Lover by D.H. Lawrence
