Challenge: Winter Reading

Robin at My Two Blessings is hosting the Winter Reading challenge, which runs from December 21 (today!) to March 20.

This is an easygoing challenge: Pick some books and agree to read them during the time allotted. Books can overlap other challenges, and they can be in any format. There will be a blog to post our reviews; so we can discover new books.

Here are the books (in no particular order) I plan to read to meet this challenge:

The Apprentice by Jacques Pepin
Rebel by Bernard Cornwell
House of Blue Mangoes by David Davidar
Marco Polo by Laurence Bergreen
Memoirs of Cleopatra by Margaret George
French Lessons by Peter Mayle
Twilight at Monticello by Alan Pell Crawford
Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly
Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke
Nancy Drew #1 (graphic) by Stefan Petrucha

To sign up, to read reviews, to see who else has joined, visit Robin's blog.

Happy Winter Reading! I want to read the series by Cornelia Funke. It will fit well into a couple of 09 challenges!
