The 20 books of 2011

In my last post I mentioned that I hope to read at least 12 books that I own this year. I also said that I would likely read more than 12 and consider it reasonable to read about 20. So, here is the list of the 20 books I hope to read in 2011 in no particular order. Ten are fiction and ten are non-fiction. I will probably alternate between fiction and non-fiction and may at times have two going at once. I will post a book review when I finish each.

1. Transformers: Exodus by Alex Irvine
2. The Pilgrim's Regress by C. S. Lewis
3. The Invisible Man by H. G. Wells
4. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
5. The Portage to San Cristobal of A. H. by George Steiner
6. The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka
7. A Lantern in Her Hand by Bess Streeter Aldrich
8. The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown (This will most likely be done as a book on tape during travel season in the Fall)
9. This Present Darkness by Frank Peretti
10. Lord Foulgrin's Letters by Randy Alcorn

1. Love is an Orientation by Andrew Marin
2. Being White by Harris & Schaupp
3. The Normal Christian Life by Watchman Nee
4. Lords of the Earth by Don Richardson
5. China: The Hidden Miracle by Paterson & Farrell
6. A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah
7. Velvet Elvis by Rob Bell
8. Heaven by Randy Alcorn
9. Reflection on the Psalms by C. S. Lewis
10. The Challenge of Jesus by N. T. Wright

My friend Ryan is doing this "No book buying for a year/Read a book I own each month" thing with me. Check his blog out.
