I’ve been working through an enormous reading list for the last couple of years, based largely on the BBC’s list of top 100 books . About a year ago, I got stuck on James Joyce’s Ulysses. I’m no novice reader, but I cannot seem to make my way through that book. I don’t like the style, the tone of the story depresses and annoys me. I know. I’m a barbarian. But in 2016, I’m getting back to reading.
I’m going to aim at books in and around my genre of writing, all published within the last five years. I’ll get back to my list of classics, eventually.
Maybe when my kids go to college.
For now, I’m going to aim for a modest list of 50 books. Over at Herding Cats, this is described as Level 4 “Taking a Swim”. I hope/plan to add to this list as the year goes on, but I’m going to set a minimum of 50, to start.
The first to make the cut, in no particular order, are found on my Goodreads 2016 Challenge List:
I’ve already started in on this list, so keep an eye out for reviews and ratings every week. Here’s to reading and writing and reading some more!
