Last year, I set a personal goal to not let the year go by without reading three specific books. I chose Watership Down by Richard Adams and The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. For the third, I couldn’t make up my mind so I went by author: I allowed ANY book by Neil Gaiman and ANY book that I already owned by Tracy Kidder.
I was successful! WOO HOO!
and so, I am setting the same goal of THREE “MUSTS” for 2011.
First, I am choosing to read the book that has been in my possession the longest that has yet to be read: Erotic Works of DH Lawrence: Edited by Claire Booss and Christopher Busa; includes Lady Chatterley’s Lover. I’ve been carrying this book around with me since college. That would mean that this book has *lived* at least 12 different places in 5 states over 20+ years. It’s about time I find out if I should keep it or not. (I’ve actually read all the poems…)
don’t know how to format with wrap around pics!
Third, I just have a feeling that once I read a Rosy Thornton book, I will adore this author. So I’m putting Hearts and Minds
on my list. I think I can blame Litlove and/or Nancy for the recommendation.
That’s it. If I only read 3 books or finally somehow get to 100 — these titles will most DEFINITELY be moved from the tbr pile to the DONE-READs.
WHICH THREE BOOKS THIS YEAR ARE *YOU* COMMITTING TO?
