Reading Challenge 5: Wishlist

One of the challenges that I was able to complete successfully last year was the Wishlist Challenge. The goal was to read at least 12 books from your wishlist. I made a list of 21 and it gave me great pleasure to strike-off 12 of them. This year I have again made a list of 21 [three of them carried forward from last year's list] and am hoping that I read at least 12 of them. This year I have included a number of non-fiction books too as these always get sidelined by fiction. Hoping I find them in the libraries I frequent.

Here's my list:

Beware of Pity by Stefan Zweig
The Boat by L.P. Hartley
The Eleventh Little Nigger by Jacquemard Senecal
Ethan Frome by Edith Warton
The Freedom Movement in Indian Fiction in English by Pramila Garg
The Glory that was Greece by J.C. Stobart
Good Old Anna by Belloc Lowndes
The Historical Novel by Georg Lucas
The House of Blue Mangoes by David Davidhar
The Last Labyrinth by Arun Joshi
The Lessons by Naomi Alderman
The Long Walk Home by Manreet Sodhi
Mr. Norris Changes Trains by Christopher Isherwood
Mysteries by Knut Hamsun
Pilpali Sahab by Mulk Raj Anand
Prison and Chocolate Cake by Nayantara Sahgal
Punjab and the Raj (1849 - 1947) by Ian Talbot
The Secret Agent by Joseph Conrad
The Wandering Falcon by Jamail Ahmed
What is Cultural History? by Peter Burke
The Yellow Room by Mary Roberts Rinehart
