2009 Art History Reading Challenge – Finito!

Last night I finished the last of my 6 books for this challenge, The Thief of Venice. Challenge met! Enjoyed each of these selections.

The Art History Reading Challenge: read at least 6 books about art in 2009. These can be either fiction or nonfiction, and can span every genre from historical fiction to graphic novel. Thanks to Sarah G. (http://rangersarah.blogspot.com/) for inviting me. For now, I’m listing six novels that have been waiting in the bookcase for a while, but if I finish early enough, I  may add more, perhaps in the nonfiction category.

  1. Ooh, some of those I haven’t seen before! I will have to look them up and add them to the “to-read” list – that is the great thing about challenges, learning about new books.

    I agree, I’ve only read 1 of these- “Boating Party” – and its now 1 of my most-loved reads. Can’t wait to read these others, they sound quite fascinating!
