(Another) 1% Well-Read Challenge

Take two! It's time for the 1% Well Read Challenge again, where we read 10 books from the list 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die. The authors of the book went and changed the list on us, so some books have been added and some scrapped from the original. That's why I'm opting to pick challenge variation #3, in which I am to read 13 books from both lists, between today (March 1, 2009) and March 31, 2010. A list is available here, or you can download a spreadsheet here. My personal list is here, but it has not yet been updated with the additions/subtractions.

Here is what I plan on reading for this challenge!

Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkein (11/4/09)
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon (12/1/09)
The Life of Pi by Yann Martel
Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy
Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut
The Once and Future King by T.H. White (3/27/09)
On the Road by Jack Kerouac (10/26/09)
I, Robot by Issac Asimov
Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway (12/14/09)
The Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood
Jazz by Toni Morrison
