Books I Want to Read in 2013

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.

  1. 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.
