For example, I have been contemplating if maybe this year isn't the year for me to finally read War & Peace. It's all ready on my eReader and I keep looking at it in anticipation, but also fear. It is just so LONG! I would love to read it, though, because I think it is my type of book. If I do plan for it, though, I would read it slowly. I should start soon...
I really want to finish some series that I have on the go. Instead, it is the fourth day of the year and I have all ready started ANOTHER series... I need to finish some. The books are oftentimes all ready on my TBR pile. It is just a matter of tackling them!
Read more classics... I think that this has unofficially became 'The Year of the Classic'. If I continue to be obsessed with my eReader, that is the cheapest reading method. My eReader came with 100 loaded on it all ready. I deleted a few that didn't interest me in the slightest. There are a few others I have never even heard of before, but that doesn't mean they are bad... Then, I have been on Project Gutenberg downloading more. I also plan to keep an eye on what Amanda reads in case we can read something together. Some of the ones I would love to read this year are as follows:
The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery (reread)
Anthem by Ayn Rand
The Awakening and Selected Short Stories by Kate Chopin (Amanda recommended)
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
Dracula by Bram Stoker
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens (reread)
The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo
The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Middlemarch by George Eliot
The Monk by M.G. Lewis
No Name by Wilkie Collins
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy
The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
And a few others that are rereads... Well, and the other books on there, but I can't read everything. I want to read from closer to this century, too!
Lastly, I want to read my own books more and use the library less...
What are your plans for 2011?
