Half Year Update on My 2009 Reading List

I made a list of books to read this year to slowly get me through that list of 1001 books to read before you die. Now, that's quite a bit of reading, but even if I don't make it, that gives me a central place from which to pull titles.

A couple of these were light and easy, girly reads for summer in my opinion, so ladies if you need a beach book, check out Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day or Agnes Grey. Some of the others I had to fight my way through. I fear those left on my list may be more of the same. We'll see!

I got a little carried away this past month with some trashy "after Pride and Prejudice" novels, so hopefully now I'm back on track with The Mill on the Floss.

Emily's Required Reading for 2009 (in no certain order)
Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day Winifred Watson

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man James Joyce
