you've got a few books here that i've really enjoyed - Sarah, Plain and Tall, The Giver, and The Time Traveler's Wife - and i'm currently listening to Eragon on CD.

i've been hearing good things about Snow Flower, The Book Thief, and The Road, so i'll be interested in your reviews - if you get to those alternates.

happy reading!

What a great list! I love Sarah, Plain and Tall, and Snow Flower and The Road were both very good as well.

The Giver is one of my favourite books. I want to read The Time Traveller's Wife but it's not available at my library.

I love the way Susan Vreeland writes. Be sure to read the interview with her at the back of Girl in Hyacinth Blue. Love that book! And also, The Giver and The Book Thief. It looks to me that you're going to have fun with this challenge.
