Rose City Reader's challenge list

  • Wednesday, May 7, 2008

I need another book list like a hole in the head. But since I am a "compulsive list reader," how can I resist?

These are most of the books by Nobel winners that are currently sitting on my TBR shelf. My plan is to read five of these, maybe six if I get ambitious:

Albert Camus, The Stranger
William Faulkner, The Sound and the Fury
John Galsworthy, The Man of Property
Nadine Gordimer, Beethoven Was One-Sixteenth Black
Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook
Boris Pasternak, Dr. Zhivago
Goa Xingjian, One Man’s Bible

According to, I have read books by 17% of the Nobel winners.
