Books of LOST Reading Challenge 2011

Alright, I had to do it. Anyone who knows me knows that I am OBSESSED with the television show LOST. The series ending was probably the worst part of the year 2010 for me. So why not let the show live on in our minds and hearts by dedicating a book challenge to it??

I found this very cool (short) list of books on Flashlight Worthy . Other sites that have LOST books lists are:

http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Literary_works (The longest list)

http://www.squidoo.com/lost-book-list (Breaks some up into categories)

I've listed some of the many books here, but click the links above for the books and their correlations.

1. Alice in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found there by Lewis Carroll
2. Are you there God? It's Me Margaret by Judy Blume
3. Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens
4. Carrie by Stephen King
5. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
6.Everything that Rises Must Converge by Flannery O'Connor
7. Rainbow Six Tom Clancy
8. Watership down by Richard Adams
9. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
10. The Moon Pool by A. Merritt

If you're a LOST fanatic like me, you'll know that there are COUNTLESS books that appeared in people's hands, were mentioned by characters, were alluded to in episode titles and so forth in the series. As you can see from the links, there are tons of choices. And you'll have an entire year to read them! Challenge goes from Jan. 1 2011 - Dec. 31st 2011

The levels of the challenge you can do are:

Don't tell me what I can't do 1-2 books
We have to go back 3-4 books
WALT!!! 5-6 books
Benjamin Linus 7-8 books
Sawyer 9 books
The New Jacob 10+ books

  1. would love to join you - have a blog, will post a link once I have started with the first book (hard to choose, so many interesting ones, I am just checking out the lostpedia site).
    and I'm glad that over here, the last episode has been shown a couple of weeks ago, otherwise, I would probably ask you for spoilers :o)
