Gracie's List

The five books about me are:

*Persuasion by Jane Austen (F)
(I do so identify with it)
*Nine Parts of Desire by Geraldine Brooks (NF)
(I read it between tours of duty in Turkey)
*Beowulf trans. by Seamus Heaney (Epic Poetry)
(I was an English Lit major; this version is accessible & magnificent)
*Time and Again by Jack Finney (F)
(I would so love to be able to do this - and he lived in Marin County)
*Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery (Juv.F)
(the book that made me a reader)
and one more, just because:
*Without by Donald Hall (Poetry)
(every person should be loved like this)

What I plan to read:

*Heidi by Johanna Spyri (Heidijane’s list)
*The Tortilla Curtain by T.C. Boyle (Dewey’s list)
*Tale of Despereaux by Kate diCamillo (Booklogged’s list)
*Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh (Beachreader’s list)
*So Many Books, So Little Time by Sara Nelson (A Book in the Life’s list and Sally’s list)
*Booked to Die by John Dunning (Bonnie’s list)

I’m looking forward to reading these books, for a number of reasons, and am glad to be a part of the challenge

Great choices, Gracie! I totally forgot about "Without". Thanks for adding it to your list. I totally agree that everyone should be loved like that. It's on my list to read now!
