Whitcoulls Reading Challenge 2009

Read Your Way Through The Whitcoulls Top 100 List.

November 15th, 2008 to November 15th, 2009.

Read at least 4 books from Whitcoulls Top 100 lists.


Whitcoulls, a bookstore in New Zealand , every now and again survey all their customers for their 3 favourite books. The top 100 made it into this list. So it's not of what people ought to read, or topsellers, but what people actually did read and love.

Full details of the challenge and reading lists from Maria at Reading My Way Through Life.

My four choices will be from this list of books waiting on my shelves with completed books highlighted in red:

1998
The English Patient by Michael Ondaajte
Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder
The Deep End of the Ocean by Jacqueline Mitchard
Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson

2002
Five Quarters of the Orange by Joann Harris
White Teeth by Zadie Smith

2008
To Kill a Mockingbird by Lee Harper
The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
Memoirs of a Gheisha by Arthur Golden
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon
Chocolat by Joanne Harris
