Please Leave A Link For Books Read In January and February Here

I don't know how to get rid of the Mr. Linky that I used two years ago so that I can start a new one and I think there are few enough of us to make leaving links in the comments work. Once we get through February, I'll post the links so that we can all see what the others have read so far for the challenge. I'm eager to hear how you're all doing! I tried to rent my favorite version of "Romeo & Juliet" last night but the store didn't have it. Going to have to check Hulu because I was really hoping to get a couple of items ticked off my list for this challenge this week. Have any of you seen the Franco Zefferelli version? I absolutely adore it!

I Think I Can, I Think I Can...

I'm trying to get a game plan together for my reading for this challenge - of course I do this every year and it sure didn't help last year!

I'm grateful that my hubby minored in English in college and that we've moved all of the books he read many times so that I was able to find The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway, a full collection of Charles Dickens' books, and Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. I'm planning to read the Hemingway, the Twain, and at least one of the Dickens for this challenge plus I was also able to scrounge off of our shelves William Faulkner's The Sound And The Fury and Rebecca Wells' The Divine Secrets of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood. I'll possibly add a re-read of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca (now what shelf is that on?) and probably will read Michel Faber's The Crimson Petal and The White.  Then I'm up in the air as to whether or not I'll do a couple of movies to round things out or do more reading.

When you sign up for challenges, do you make a plan at the beginning or do you wing it? If you've made a plan, what's on your agenda for this challenge this year?
