A friend just sent me the link to the New York Times list of 100 Notable books of 2011. I have yet to read any. This will change over the break. How many books can I cram in between December 13 and January 9? I'm about to become a regular at the library and finally pay the fines on those overdue books from the summer.
Here's my list so far...
pre-2011 titles I've been meaning to read for too long:
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (Jonathan Safran Foer)
The Poisonwood Bible (Barbara Kingsolver)
Mrs. Dalloway (Virginia Woolf)
After You'd Gone (Maggie O'Farrell)
Agnes Grey (Anne Brontë)
1Q84 (Haruki Murakami)
Say Her Name (Francisco Goldman)
Blue Nights (Joan Didion)
The Marriage Plot (Jeffrey Eugenides)
The Tiger's Wife (Téa Obreht)
Ten books in twenty-one days? I like this challenge.
Oh, and that picture up there? A replica of it is hanging in my room at my parents' house. I love it.
