TBR 2008 Challenge


It occurred to me that I'd left out a major part of my TBR list when I made my initial list of books for this challenge. My Amazon.com wishlist functions mostly as a TBR list for books that are actually located at my local library, and some of the books on that list have been there a looooong time. So, I went ahead and picked 12 books that actually physically exist in my house as the main picks for this challenge, and then picked the 12 alternates from my library TBR list.

Here's my final list for this challenge:

The main list:
American Gods - Neil Gaiman
The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette Break - Steve Sherrill
The Girl's Guide to Hunting and Fishing - Melissa Banks
The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse - Robert Rankin
Carter Beats the Devil - Glen David Gold
Cordelia Underwood - Van Reid
Coyote Blue - Christopher Moore
The Stolen Child - Keith Donohue
Lord of Light - Roger Zelazny
Gonzalez & Daughter Trucking Company - Maria Amparo Escandon
Idylls of the King - Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Herodotus - The Histories

Alternates:
The Yiddish Policeman’s Union – Michael Chabon
Tamlin – Pamela Dean
The Silver Rose – Susan Carroll
The Thirteenth Tale – Diane Setterfield
The Time Traveler’s Wife - Audrey Niffenegger
The Hero with a Thousand Faces – Joseph Campbell
Austenland – Shannon Hale
Civilzation and the Limpet – Martin Wells
The Botany of Desire – Michael Pollan
The Devil in the White City – Erik Larson
The Professor and the Madman – Simon Winchester
On Writing – Stephen King
