This looks like fun. I must be a 20s, 30s, 40s soul. I loved The Good Earth and So Big is one of my all time favorites. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn has been on my TBR list for ages.

I'm in two book clubs and doing the In Their Shoes Challenge. This looks so tempting! Looking forward to your reviews this year.

Wow, this one would be so hard for me! You've chosen some really good books though, and a very "varied" list :) Happy Reading!

Fun challenge. I love to read, just can't find the time right now. I don't mind, I know that my reading "season" will come :o).

You are making me tired just reading your lists!! LOL! That's a lot of tea, coffee and hot chocolate--because I have to have something to sip with reading!!
