Even though I’m in the midst of a three-month book acquisition ban (that means no buying, no review copy requests, and no library checkouts) I can still dream of the books I would like to read that are not already on my shelves!
A couple of years ago I made a list of ten books I wanted to read in 2016, which was an attempt to get outside my usual reading habits and push myself to take on some difficult or at least unfamiliar topics and settings. It took more than twelve months, but I did read eight of them — all except for Excellent Daughters, which I decided didn’t interest me as much as I had thought, and Kindred, which I still do want to read but keep bypassing for some reason. I’ll get to it someday.
I was really pleased with the results of that earlier experiment, so here’s another list for the coming year(s). What would be on yours?
