  1. I love this! I think I'm going to start this challenge as well!

  2. Mine are:

    A New Kind of Country, by Dorothy Gilman: fantastic: she moves, on her own, to a farmhouse in Nova Scotia.

    Journal of a Solitude, by May Sarton. I also like her books "The House by the Sea," and "Plant Dreaming Deep"

    A Thousand Days in Venice, by Marlena de Blasi. Following this book are two others that are good too.

    The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho

    A Country Year, by Sue Hubbell

  3. Madilyn, I'm keeping an eye out for your list!

    Brooke, thank you! I've been meaning to read May Sarton forever so I'm taking your list as recommendations ;)

  4. I love this idea! mind if I join you? I'll start on Monday- or some day sooner :)
    and I love your books too! I'm especially in love with the Secret Garden. how are you deciding on which lists to write? should I just do the same as yours?

  5. Hey Amy! I would love it if you join! I'm just making up topics as I go along, so whatever you want to do--- you might even give me some ideas :)
