I look forward to seeing what I can find to complete this one! :D

Proposed reading and books read:
1. "A book with a number in the title": Moon and Sixpence by Somerset Maugham. I've never read Maugham, but have always intended to, so this is a good time to start.

5. "A book with evil in the title": The Evil Genius by Wilkie Collins. Will cross over to my Victorian Literature Challenge.  Read 14 January 2011. Read my review here.

6.  A "book with a life stage in the title": Millionaire Baby by Alice Duer Miller.  Read 5 November 2011.  Brief discussion here.
