Wow, having coffee late again--hope I can sleep tonight. This week I finished reading Running the Books--check out my review just below. One of my favorite books of the year.
I guess it's time to start thinking about a post for my favorite books of the year? Everybody seems to be doing it. That and making up reading lists for 2011. In December I will be reading Russians. Here's what I'm thinking:
The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov
Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov (I know, I know--I can't believe I haven't read it either)
War and Peace by Tolstoy (maybe if I start it over Christmas break I will finish it by February?)
or maybe The Brothers Karamazov again (I love re-reading)
And then I have these ARCs:
My Reading Life Pat Conroy
The Good Sister Drusilla Campbell
Old Border Road Susan Froderberg
Dirty Secret: A Daughter Comes Clean About Her Mother's Compulsive Hoarding Jessie Sholl
On Tuesday, December 7th I'll be joining The Classics Circuit for the first time, on the Trollope Tour. I'll be posting about The Prime Minister. If you've been reading my blog you know I have a few obsessions, the works of Anthony Trollope chief among them.
So I'm kind of excited about an entire Trollope Tour!
What are your reading plans for the month, the year, your life? Maybe you are like this brave soul:
Lifetime Reading Plan
She has a plan for reading all the books she should have read but didn't, starting in January 2011. I can't wait to see how it goes!
Are you making lists right now? Do you have a reading plan? Or do you just read as the spirit moves you? Are you signing up for challenges (there are a lot of them out there, but I think that's another post)? Do tell, Gentle Readers.
