Birth Year Reading Challenge

Today is my birthday. And I will tell you right up front that I turn 38 today. Why am I being so open about my age? Well, because I've decided to join yet another reading challenge that will force me to reveal how old I am. It's the Birth Year Reading Challenge, hosted by Hotchpot Cafe, which I discovered through Book in Hand.

In this challenge, I am to choose some books that were written the year I was born: 1972. I've chosen a couple that were on the best seller list that year. And I'm including the Roald Dahl book because I just finished reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to my 5 year old, and we were already planning to move on to the next one anyway! Here's what I'm planning:

1. Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator by Roald Dahl Review
2. Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach Review
3. My Name is Asher Lev by Chaim Potok Review
4. The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin Review

I think this is a fun challenge, so I may add more to my list as I go along.
