  1. Good luck with your challenge! My biggest challenge is making any headway with my TBR pile, so I know it can definitely be a struggle.

  2. Thanks for taking the challenge with us! You have a GREAT list - I'm super-stoked to see some of your reviews, particularly those for Everything is Illuminated (I loved Exteremely Loud and Incredibly Close) and Hunchback of Notre-Dame. Also, to my great shame, I have not yet read Catch-22 or 1984, so I look forward to hearing what you have to say about them.

    Middlesex is one of the most brilliant pieces of literature in recent times, I think. One of the very few books I would call a modern classic. I hope you enjoy it!

  3. Just checking-in on your progress for the 2011 TBR Pile Challenge - how are things going so far?!

    Also... BIG Giveaways are happening next week, and TBR Pile Challenge participants earn extra entries for linking to their lists, so be sure to visit my Giveaways section soon! ;)
