The Guardian's 1000 Novels Challenge

The British paper, The Guardian, has come up with a list of 1000 Novels Everyone Must Read Before They Die. (In case they take that link down, I've also posted the list here.)

So, the challenge is to read 10 and review read and review 10 books off the list (that's 1%) between February 1st of 2009 and February 1st of 2010.

Of these 10, you must read 1 from each category and, if possible, 1 should be a book you have never heard of until you saw it on this list.

1. the curious incident of the dog in the night-time - mark haddon (comedy)
2. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez (love)
3. the bell jar - sylvia plath (self and family)
4. sophie's choice - william styron (war and travel)
5. The Postman Always Rings Twice by James M Cain (crime)
6. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (science fiction and fantasy)
