Challenge Complete: Bucket List 2012

The 2012 "Bucket List" Reading Challenge was the challenge to sign up for if YOU have a list of books that you are dying to read but just haven't gotten to them yet. The Rules are simple for this challenge and The Eclectic Bookshelf has included a couple of sample "Bucket" Lists to provide a good starting point. If you'd like to join in, click on the Challenge Button above to head to the site.**

As you can see, I jumped in for the Semi level (13+ books). Here are the books I used to complete the challenge:

1. Prayers to Broken Stones by Dan Simmons (1/14/12)
2. The First Men in the Moon by H. G. Wells (2/3/12)
3. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne (2/14/12)
4. Nothing Can Rescue Me by Elizabeth Daly (2/18/12)
5. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens (2/29/12)
6. The Curious Cape Cod Skull by Marie Lee (3/21/12)
7. The Rose Window & Other Verse from New Poems by Rainer Maria Rilke (3/22/12)
8. The So Blue Marble by Dorothy B. Hughes (3/24/12)
9. A Sprig of Sea Lavender by J. R. L. Anderson (3/31/12)
10. The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett (4/4/12)
11. The Bat by Mary Roberts Rinehart (4/14/12)
12. The Gemini Man by Susan Kelly (4/15/12)
13. Dracula by Bram Stoker (4/25/12)
14. Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery (5/4/12)

 **Please note: The Eclectic Bookshelf site is now defunct and it appears that she has left blogging altogether.  But--I still finished the challenge, even though I can't tell her so.

Well Done, I have only read Dracula, my first time reading last year.

I hadn't heard of this Challenge but I did join one of her others, I didn't realise she had stopped blogging :-(
