The wrap up...

I thought I wasn't going to be able to finish this, but thankfully I was able to pull it off. This was a good challenge for me as I some day want to attempt everything on this list. Both original and updated version. I got a little discouraged while reading Blonde, but I got over it and moved on. I read...

Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte 4/5
Saturday - Ian McEwan 5/5
Blonde - Joyce Carol Oates 1/5
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde - Robert Louis Stevenson 2/5
The Woman in White - Wilkie Collins 5/5
The Picture of Dorian Gray - Oscar Wilde 3/5
The Poisonwood Bible - Barabara Kingsolver 1/5
Emma - Jane Austen 4/5
The Virgin Suicides - Jeffery Eugenides 4/5
Casino Royale - Ian Flemming 3/5

A good mix. Only three I disliked, although I am slightly ashamed that two of those I couldn't even finish. But I made it through 100 pages and that's good enough for me. I should see what percentage I am really at with this list...

Do you have the spreadsheet for the 1001 list? I can email it to you if you don't.
