I have a feeling this year is going to be busy for lots of reasons. I’m not going to set a reading goal this year, but I’m going to follow Stefanie’s lead and list some authors I’d like to read this year. I’d like to add more classics to my brain. So let’s see…
- I do love Jane Austen and it’s been awhile. I might have to read Persuasion along with Stef.
- After reading Drood, I really want to read a Dickens. I read Wilkie Collins last year — it’s time to give the other side a turn. Which one? Everyone loves Bleak House… I do love Great Expectations but there’s so many good ones to choose from. Next holiday season I’ll try to read A Christmas Carol.
- John Steinbeck. I haven’t read any in a very long time. I have always loved Steinbeck; I don’t think I read Cannery Row. Maybe I’ll try that.
- Henry James: I really want to read his collected Ghost Stories but it’s hard to find. I might have to buy this one.
- Something by Iris Murdoch.
- Some more Charles de Lint.
- Some Ray Bradbury.
- Another from the very very great Kurt Vonnegut.
Apart from that, let’s just see what goodness the library brings. If I can ever get through another book, that is.
