Following up on Thursday’s post about reading intentions, I figured I would go ahead and take a look at my lists and shelves. Updating them here helps me to get this chore done, so here we are.
You may recall the very cool Britannica bookshelves that Husband built me, gosh, almost a year ago? (They were mentioned, and pictured, here and here.) They’re still serving as my TBR shelves, and I have done some cleanup and photographed them for you here.
And then there are the Hemingway shelves, most of which I’ve read (his own work) but a significant portion of which I want very badly to find time for (more of the books about him).
I don’t think I’ll bother listing titles & authors here, but you can click the photo to enlarge. And please feel free to ask questions!
I have also collected some audiobooks on my iPod, so these are waiting in line:
- Saturnalia by Lindsey Davis
- Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead by Sara Gran
- Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver
- Touch by Alexi Zentner
- Juliet by Anne Fortier
- The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde
- The Likeness by Tana French
- War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells
- The Moon is Down by John Steinbeck
…and the big one,
- Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
which at 38.5 hours is rather intimidating (not to say terrifying). I should be able to get through it in under a month…? But I have been wanting to read it and maybe this is the way. We shall see.
And finally, I’ve edited my ongoing Books I Wish to Read list here at the blog. You will notice that some books on the list also appear in my audio backlog and/or on my shelves; that is a good thing.
I admire those signed up for the TBR Double Dare; you are stronger than I! As I said a few days ago, I’m not ready for that kind of commitment. But I am going to try to stay a little closer to my TBR lists than I did in 2011, and the first step is cleaning up those lists! Here we go!
Have you set any goals for 2012?
