GLBT Challenge 2009

Amanda from The Zen Leaf has created a new book reading challenge for everyone.

The GLBT Challenge 2009
July 1, 2009 - December 31, 2009

I've been opting out of most challenges this year as I already have a huge TBR list but this sounds so interesting. My first book of 2009 was The Danish Girl by David Ebershoff - a fictional account based on the life of Lili Elbe, the world's first person to undergo male to female sexual reassignment surgery. I'd advise anyone doing this challenge to give that book a go - it's fascinating. The link for sign up and further details is here.

I haven't decided which books I'm going to read yet but I'm thinking of reading at least one Oscar Wilde book (how obvious) after enjoying The Picture of Dorian Gray so much. I'll be tracking my progress on this post.

1) The Color Purple by Alice Walker.
