I choose 25 as my commitment as I am going to apply the Bingo list to my ROOTS. Since I have been buying audio books since the 1980s and audible books since 2006 I have quite a few that have fallen through the digital cracks and searching for those that fit the criteria will help spur me on.
Here is the Bingo list which I appropriated to give me some impetus to go through my ROOTs along with the books I've found which will work. It seemed like a fun list which will keep this challenge very eclectic. I still need to find three more but considering how quick I was able to find these in my dusty ICloud I am not worried.

I can't believe I didn't read Le Guin during her lifetime. What a writer!!
The story written in 1971 is about a man in the future (2002), George Orr who has "effective" dreams. That is, whatever he dreams becomes reality. He dreams his Aunt died five years previous and when he awakens she is gone and everyone's memories of her life for the last five years is gone as well, replaced by their belief in the fact she died five years ago. He is sent to a psychiatrist who attempts to use George to manipulate reality into what the psychiatrist believes are improvements.
The world which Le Guin portrays in this future 2002 includes fighting in Afghanistan, tensions in the Middle East and major climate changes due to global warming.
An amazingly prescient novel, beautifully written and a great read.
