Summer Reading Challenge 2

I have once again joined the Summmer Reading Challenge hosted by Amanda. I've also decided to incorporate the Southern Reading Challenge into my SRC 2 reading. I decided it would be much easier to have a separate blog to track my progress hence "books make life better"!

The SRC 2 kicks off tomorrow and here is my reading challenge list. I plan to start with Silent Spring by Rachel Carson.

I have three books to read for my book group:
The Road
Water for Elephants
A House for Mr. Biswas

and three others from my TBR pile:
Everything is Illuminated
Chocolat
Silent Spring

and my three books for the SouthernReaders Challenge:
Lunch at the Picadilly
Queen of the Turtle Derby
As I Lay Dying

At three per month, I think this is a pretty doable list!

I'm interested to hear about Water for Elephants. I very nearly put that one on my list.

I'm a big fan of Jonathan Safran Foer. His new book, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, is just as good (if not even better) than Everything is Illuminated. Hope you like it!

Light, light then hit them with the hard stuff! You and Henk are the only two I know are doing Faulkner. Enjoy! ;D
