My next library book finally arrived on Tuesday, Madame Bovary. Not sure if I'm going to like this book or not. We'll have to wait and see. One thing I will say is that this challenge has led me to read books that I most likely would have never chosen on my own. Brave New World was definitely a departure from the rest of the books I've read so far and Lady Chatterley's Lover...I can see why they would have wanted to ban it when it first came out. But all in all, interesting books.

Madame Bovary is the seventh book from the list of Top 10 and not that I'm really coming near the end I'm wondering what I'm going to do for reading. I definitely going to keep using the library but I guess I'm going to have to find a new list to read off of. If anyone has suggestions, please let me know! Being without a book is like being without air for me. I've been a night time reader for as long as I can remember. I always have a book, at least one, sometimes two that I'm reading.

I love books. The only book that I know I want to read that's not on the list is George Orwell's 1985. I've never read it and it's mentioned a lot when I'm reading about books. Don't know how this one escaped my notice but it won't go unread for long after the list is done.

If you google Top 100 Books, you'll come up with some interesting lists. You've probably already read a lot of them, but it might give you some ideas for some new reading!

Thanks Anna! I will do that. It's scary getting to the end of my list.
