Another challenge... 8 Books, 8 Decades

I couldn't resist this, especially since the books can overlap with other challenges. Not that all of these are ones I already have in other challenges... I also couldn't resist adding new items to my 'I need to buy this' list! ;-)

The Decades '08 challenge requires one book from each of 8 (at least!) consecutive decades. Here are my choices - I'm not completely sure about some of them, so I'll list my choice within the decades too!

Completed: 8/8 as of Deember 3, 2008

1900s The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett (1909)

1910s The Story Girl by L.M. Montgomery (1911)

1920s Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne (1926)

1930s Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston (1937)

1940s Animal Farm by George Orwell (1945) - finished 28/03

1950s Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (1953) - finished 27/04
