2010 TBR Challenge

In 2010 try to read 12 books that have been on your to-be-read shelf for at least one year.

Start Date: Jan 1st 2010.
Finish Date: 31st Dec 2010.

12 books in one year sounds quite easy, it's only one a month. But these books have been on my TBR pile for over a year, and there's usually a reason for that. These are the books that I have either never really bothered to read or they are books that I am intimidated by.

Here's my list, in no particular order:
1. Great Expectations - Charles Dickens
2. Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
3. The Hobbit - J.R.R. Tolkien
4. Morgan's Woman - Iris Gower - review
5. The Darling Buds of May: Book of the Seasons - H.E. Bates
6. The Penguin Book of Victorian Villainies - Hugh Greene
7. The Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales - Brothers Grimm
8. Tess of the D'Urbervilles - Thomas Hardy
9. Hamlet - William Shakespeare - review
10. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde - Robert Louis Stevenson
11. Tales of Mystery and Imagination - Edgar Allan Poe
12. Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
And two substitutes in case two above go seriously wrong.
13. The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
14. The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
I will be crossing them off the list as and when I read them.
