A to Z Challenge List - Revised

Thanks to all the suggestions I've filled in more titles.

This week's BTT question asks about reading plans for 2008. Since I just wrote this post, it seems to answer the question because these are the books I'm looking forward to reading in 2008.

I found this challenge at Joy's and thought I'd join in. It runs all of 2008 so I might have a chance to finish it. As you can see, I don't have a complete list yet so I'm open to suggestions.

Did you get your package for the secret santa? I wondered because you have not blogged about it nor linked to nymeth's linky.

If you're looking for some titles to round out your list, you might get some ideas here:

Cath said...

Zennor in Darkness by Helen Dunmore for 'Z'. I haven't read it yet but am doing so for one of my challenges this year. It's supposed to be good.
