OK – here is a new intention I am setting for myself. Do whatever is necessary to read at least a handful of good books this year. So far I think I want to give these a try, I’ve ranked them in my order of preference, for my own future reference):
The Middlesteins by Jami Attenberg
Mr. Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
NW by Zadie Smith
The Cutting Season by Attica Locke
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
The Round House by Louise Erdrich
Dear Life by Alice Munro
Phantom by Jo Nesbo
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
There that is MORE than enough to get started. If I get through half of these, I will be amazed.
One thought on “Books I Want to Read in 2013”
Boyd, your book list is a good one! I enjoyed “Mr. Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore”, and I’m enjoying “Dear Life” now. Have fun.
