Nicholas Sparks Reading Challenge 2011

This is where I'll be keeping track of the books I've read on the Nicolas Sparks Reading Challenge.  I'll be crossing them off the list as I finish them.  I'm hoping to read or listen to all of them before the year is out.   Believe it or not, I've never read any of his books, but I have seen a few of the movies.

List of Nicholas Sparks novels:

     The Notebook
     Message in a Bottle
     A Walk to Remember
     The Rescue
     A Bend in the Road
     Nights in Rodanthe
     The Wedding
     The Guardian
     Three Weeks With My Brother
     True Believer (read this first, before At First Sight)
     At First Sight (read this after True Believer)
     The Choice
     Dear John
     The Lucky One
     The Last Song
     Safe Haven

I have not read any of these either. This weather is making me want to curl up with a good book but I'm addicted to blogging!

I was not a N.S. fan until I moved to N.C. 2 years ago. I live about 40 minutes from him now so down here, he is required reading. I greatly enjoyed "Three Weeks With My Brother". It gave great insight to how he views himself. After reading that I was a bigger fan. I am a fan of some of his books. Enjoy... I did drive to Rodanthe looking for Richard Gere though. :)

I love his books. I've read many of them. The Last Song is one of my favorites. His books are much better than the movies!

I've read a few of his books. I don't know though, they aren't really my cup of tea. Good luck with the challenge.

I love Nicholas Sparks and have all his books! Several are signed by him. Sadly I haven't read his last 5. Too busy reading blogs! I've got to start back reading books. It's my first love!

I knew I had a copy of The Notebook that someone had given me some years ago. I just found it! So it's next on my print book list (I also listen to audio books and I have a Kindle)

Out of the ones you've read so far, The Notebook and Dear John are my favorites :) I hope you get to read Message in a Bottle - another of my faves .
