what alisonwonderland is going to read

which of the books about other participants have i decided to read? that's been even more difficult to decide than which books were "about me"! our host Lisa has said that she originally thought she'd choose one book from each participant's list - but she greatly underestimated the popularity of this unique reading challenge. i wish i could read one book from each list - but i've settled on five that i will definitely read by the end of the challenge and five more that i will hope i can get to. all the other great suggestions will have to go on the "someday" list. here are my two sets of five:
  • So Many Books, So Little Time by Sara Nelson
    (from the lists of Vasilly, A Book in the Life, and Sally)

  • Oh My Goth by Gena Showalter
    (from Stephanie's list)

  • The View from Saturday by E. L. Konigsburg
    (from Sarah Miller's list)

  • A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
    (from Becky's list)

  • Marley & Me by John Grogan
    (from Lynne's list)

  • The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
    (from Kristin's list)

  • Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
    (from Juli's list)

  • Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
    (from Faith's list)

  • Einstein's Dreams by Alan Lightman
    (from Raidergirl3's list)

  • The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
    (from the lists of A Book in the Life, Maryanne, and Heidijane)

Einstein's Dreams is a wonderful book (and I chose the word wonderful carefully, after consulting my dictionary). It is one I've read over and over, and its images have stayed with me for a long time.
I hope it's as satisfying a read for you, too
