Yet Another Challenge

Despite already participating in a number (get it) of challenges this, I could not resist doing the Numbers Challenge again this year. Especially since I have already read a book with a number in it, Jane Smiley's A Thousand Acres. I hope to go for the brass ring and read five books with numbers in it. My tentative list is:

  1. A Thousand Acres by Jane Smiley

  2. Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare

  3. Seven Pleasures: Essays on Ordinary Happiness by Wilard Spiegelman

  4. 2666 by Roberto Bolaño

  5. Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith

Alternates include:

  • A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

  • Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands by Jorge Amado
