Okay, here are the 10 Books I commit to reading in 2012 from 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die book. I skipped the 1700s, because my husband convinced me that the novel didn't truly exist until the 1800s. I only committed to 10, because I over-committed myself to challenges last year. Who knew--- raising a toddler and working is super time consuming!!?!
The Story of Lucy Gault – William Trevor
What I Loved – Siri Hustvedt
Blonde – Joyce Carol Oates
Amsterdam – Ian McEwan
American Pastoral – Philip Roth
Siddhartha – Herman Hesse
Night and Day- Virginia Woolf
To Have and Have Not – Ernest Hemingway
The Idiot – Fyodor Dostoevsky
Silas Marner – George Eliot
Do you have any favorites on this list? What book do you think I should read before I die? What books are you excited about reading this year?
Okay, now I'm off to bed to read.
Be well! Read On!
