Book Exchanges!

In 2011, some of the most rewarding books I read were part of the book exchange that I did with Alex from The Sleepless Reader. I enjoyed reading the books that Alex chose for me, though some were not books I would have chosen myself. That was the whole point though and I truly felt enriched by the experience.

So we decided to do it again. And my friend Larissa from Like People and Butterflies decided to join us too. So here we go.

Alex wants me to read:

Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmler Bradley
84 Charring Cross Road by Helene Hanff
King Leopold's Ghost by Adam Hochschild
Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons
Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier

I want Alex to read:

American Gods by Neil Gaiman
The Little Lady Agency by Hester Browne
Vernon God Little by DBC Pierre
The Rights of the Reader by Daniel Pennac
The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson

(I don't know how to put book covers together like Alex did, so the pictures are missing from my and Larissa's lists...)

Larissa wants me to read:

The Lovers by Alice Ferney
Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes
Persuasion by Jane Austen
Promethea by Alan Moore
Ocean Sea by Alessandro Baricco

I want Larissa to read:

Star of the Sea by Joseph O'Connor
The Giver by Lois Lowry
Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day by Winifred Watson
The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Alborn
