    List the Books You Read In One Year Starting .... NOW!

    I was going to just make my own little note of all the books I read in one year, starting today (6 March) for myself, but I figured maybe others would like to play along. Maybe no one will, in which case this will just act as my own little note, anyways.

    So, each time you finish a book, just add it to your list! Super fun, right? Well, I at least like seeing what people have read.

    As of today I haven't finished any books, but in the interest of getting the ball rolling, I will have finished Doomsday Book by Connie Williams in a few days.

    I think I'll be finishing 1984 today. Well, I've read it already, but a very long time back.

    Just spent the evening reading Macbeth for pleasure. I've been without some Shakespeare for too long, but now I'm whole again...

    Sounds a good idea for a list. If you'd waited a while you could have run it from the end of the financial year.

    Why when I quote you, Paul, does it say that instead of what you posted? Lol, weird.

    I wish I had started this thread on january 1st which would have been fitting, but I only came up with the idea yesterday.

    And what I was going to say about your post is, you finished all those books in a day? Damn, I feel inadequate.

    EDIT: Okay, you must've edited your post and it took a bit to catch up. In any case, this has all been much more complicated a reply than I intended .

    Recently finished Crime and Punishment. Currently reading The Brothers Karamazov and listening to The Mayor of Casterbridge. (does that count?)
    I like poetry,long walks on the beach and poking dead things with a stick.

    I've been doing this, too. (Since January 1, 2011.)
    I'll be sure to post once I'm finished with what I'm reading!

    The Hunchback of Notre Dame - Victor Hugo

    The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time - Mark Haddon

    Both very enjoyable to read.

    I finally finished Wolfe's Of Time and the River. It took me a month to read it because I had to reread sections of it to understand what he was saying.. He can be awfully long-winded at times--worse than Faulkner. I'm now beginning Look Homeward angel.
    Dostoevsky gives me more than any scientist.

    I don't read enough fiction these days...

    Just finished Stephen Mitchell's Witchcraft and Magic in the Nordic Middle Ages. Excellent research stuff, and very useful to my own studies.
