The week of reading a lot (hopefully)

Name: [personal profile] shanaqui
Goal: 10 books read this week. (31st Aug - 6th Sept.)
Definition of "book": From the list below.

A little about my goal and my reading habits: I finished my first goal, but I like having some kind of challenge to speed me up. This one is going to be terribly short and specific, in order to kick my ass into reading lots. I'm planning to read the following books -- subject to change depending on how easy I find them to get into. Kind of a random mix, really. One is for my course, one for a bookclub, the others more or less random.

List:
1. The Bhagavad Gita.
2. John Buchan, The Thirty-Nine Steps.
3. Angela Carter, The Bloody Chamber.
4. Richard Dawkins, The Selfish Gene.
5. Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers.
6. Ursula Le Guin, Gifts.
7. Ursula Le Guin, Voices.
8. Ursula Le Guin, Powers.
9. Thomas Love Peacock, Maid Marian.
10. Bernhard Schlink, The Reader.
