Bookish Ardour is sponsoring The Century Challenge, which will run from January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011.
The books selected will be decided by publication year and have to be read in order from the time period chosen.
I've decided to participate at the Decade level which means I will read 10 books from one decade.
Here are my choices:
1970: The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison
1971: Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C O'Brien
1972: Watership Down by Richard Adams
1973: Summer of My German Soldier by Bette Greene
1974: The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier
1975: Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
1976: Roots by Alex Haley
1977: Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison
1978: The World According to Garp by John Irving
1979: The Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
