Top 10 Tuesday 12/21/10

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme to share your top ten bookish things. It is especially funny for people who like to make lists.

1. Blindness by José Saramgo -Blindness spreading among people like an infectious disease. I am curious.

2. Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto - I heard good things about Yoshimoto's writing and I would like to try this and the next one for my Japanese Literature Challenge.

3. Goodbye Tsugumi by Banana Yoshimoto - Another one for the Japanese Lit Challenge.

4. A Moleskine Weekly Calendar - I just love Moleskine calendars and notebooks. I'm pretty sure I'll get one as Santa brings one every year.

5. The Passage by Justin Cronin

6. Freedom by Jonathan Franzen - Somebody I trust raved about this book but actually I'm going to wait for the paperback edition.

7. Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood - As the Year of the Flood and this one are somehow related I'd like to read this one first. If I won't get it I will borough it from the library or buy a used one.

8. The Help by Kathryn Stockett - I intent to read this like hundreds of other books, but it would be a good start to have it within reach when I really want to take it up.

9. Still Alice by Lisa Genova - I actually know someone who owns it, I could borough it there too.

10. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy - There is no need to tell why I would like to try a Tolstoy, is there?

I will report back on you to which extend my wishes come true.


  1. I loved Anna Karenina--now it is time to tackle War and Peace. Oryx and Crake was great; I still need to read Freedom. You have a great list, and I hope you get your wishes....

  2. You have a few I've heard of somewhat and some I haven't
    happy holidays!
