Not that I Need Another Reason to Procrastinate . . .

Because I like to read as well as write, I decided to participate in the Chunky Challenge 2009, ala Too Big to Ignore Anymore.

The rules for the challenge, which starts on Feb. 1, are here. In short, books have to be more than 450 pages.

I plan to read 5 books from the following list:

The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot

Duma Key by Stephen King

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

Thirteen by Richard K. Morgan

Nemesis by Jo Nesbo

The Book of Unholy Mischief by Elle Newmark

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult

Just Breathe by Susan Wiggs

Progress to be determined later . . .
