Gods and Monsters by Christopher Bram
Farewell, My Lovely by Raymond Chandler
A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving (movie called Simon Birch)
The Hours by Michael Cunningham
The books should be read between September 1 and December 1, 2007 and they can be cross listed for other challenges. None of these really are, although I could count Farewell, My Lovely in the 2nds Challenge, and A Prayer for Owen Meany is on my top 50_books list of books I want to read.
edit: August 10th
I've been seeing other lists and getting more good ideas. I think I'll start adding alternates to my list, in case I change my mind or want to read more, because maybe I'll run out of books to read. Right!
