Time for another Big Book Summer Reading Challenge hosted by Suzan at Book by Book! Alas, I still have too many unread books. Let's see if I can shrink the pile just a little this summer. Here is my stack of hopeful reads:
- They Were Counted by Miklos Banffy (624 pp)
- The Deepening Stream by Dorothy Canfield Fisher (616 pp)
- Night Falls on the City by Sarah Gainham (632 pp)
- Long Live Great Bardfield by Tirzah Garwood (495 pp)
- My American by Stella Gibbons (480 pp)
- A London Family by Molly Hughes (600 pp)
- The Feast by Margaret Kennedy (448 pp)
- Renoir, My Father by Jean Renoir (456 pp)
- The Gods Arrive by Edith Wharton (454 pp)
- The Most of P. G. Wodehouse (701 pp)
Nearly all of them count for other challenges -- Back to the Classics, the TBR Pile Challenge, and the European Reading Challenge. I'm cheating a little this year by choosing mostly fiction which are normally much quicker than nonfiction. I do love a great big fat biography but since I'm so far behind this year I'm going for more novels instead; only three of this list are nonfiction and one volume is (mostly) short stories. I'm hoping that most of them are fast reads. I know I won't finish them all but we can dream, right?
Which one should I read first -- and are there any I should just donate to my Little Free Library? Please let me know in the comments! And what's on your list for the Big Book Summer Reading Challenge?
