Happy New Year’s everyone! I thought this year I’d resolve to read some books and authors that have been on my to-read list for a while – give myself some accountability.
1) Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace. I started this in May but haven’t been able to finish it.
2) Kurt Vonnegut – I’ve never read anything by him and it seems my entire group of friends reads and loves his work.
3) The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. I read this years ago and loved it; I’ve been meaning to reread the unabridged version for quite a while now.
4) The Business of Genocide: The SS, Labor, and the Concentration Camps by Michael Thad Allen. I swiped this from my brother a few years ago and started it over the summer but had to put it down when the semester started and then forgot I had it.
5) The Big Bang Theory and Philosophy: Rock, Paper, Scissors, Aristotle, Locke edited by Dean Kowalski. I don’t have much, if any, philosophy background and in the interest of becoming a more well-rounded person bought this as a fun introduction.
These, of course, are my serious books; I’ll have lots of lighter reads in 2013 as well!
What’s in your to-read pile for the next year? Drop a line in the comments with your new year’s reading resolution-serious or fun!
