The 2011 Global Reading Challenge

What a challenging way to begin the New Year!  I found the Global Reading Challenge accidently, and am looking forward to posting the books I read and discussing them with the other bloggers on the web site.  I am also interested in the writing aspect of these books.  As a lover of words, or "just the right word" as Mark Twain said, I will be looking for those magical sentences that either transport me to another place or are so powerful that I remember them.  An example:  Pablo Neruda's poem, "Tonight I Can Write the saddest lines"  and the line ..."I loved her and sometimes she loved me too."  Sometimes says it all.
