3) Setting Free the Bears - John Irving
4) The Stand - Stephen King
5) The Good Husband - Gail Godwin
6) Lady's Maid - Margaret Forster
7) Handling Sin - Michael Malone
8) Vellum: The Book of All Hours - Hal Duncan
9) No Certain Rest - Jim Lehrer
10) Behind the Scenes at the Museum - Kate Atkinson
11) The Ruby Ring - Diane Haeger
12) The Optimist's Daughter - Eudora Welty

Alternates:
1) The Water Method Man - John Irving
2) Out - Natsuo Kirino
3) Stars of David - Abigail Pogrebin
4) The Cloud Atlas - David Mitchell
5) The Last Town on Earth - Thomas Mullen
6) Going After Cacciato - Tim O'Brien

I warn you reading challenges are addictive... I started doing them last year and am doing over 10 already this year doh!

I like what I have read of John Irving so far (apparently his two best novels, The World According to Garp and A Prayer for Owen Meany) and have something by Ernest Hemmingway to read this year too. I hope you enjoy the challenge.
