Wow, great reading list! I really need to get me a copy of ANNA KARENINA at some point (though I'm not sure I'd dare read it for a read-a-thon!). I'm hoping to read DRACULA this year though, and I'm on the fence about ordering THE TIGER'S WIFE so I'll be stalking you this week with some interest! :)

Good luck, and happy reading!

Thanks for stopping by! I am hoping to finsh St. zita, Tiger's wife and Dracula. I will probably take a huge bite of Anna but I am not sure if I will finish it. Let's see!

Great list :) I read AK in 2010 and am really looking forward to the movie. Good luck conquering your list!

Welcome to the read-a-thon! Great list you have lined up. I'm also reading Anna Karenina. Trying to catch up at least.

Happy Reading!

It's been ages since I read a Ruth Rendell, but she's a great choice for a RAT. I've got a mix of mystery and literary fiction in my stack too (and some kids books and magazines, which I realize don't count towards the page totals): looks like a great week!
