Someone recommended a book to me recently, and I told them I’d add it to my “to read” list.
But there’s a little problem: that list is massive. Impossibly massive.
Not to mention that some of my year is dedicated to re-reading old favourites. Call it a tradition, a habit, whatever – each year, I re-read (or try to re-read) the same set of books. And, every now and then, I’ll read a new book that gets added into that set.
So, here’s the set as it stands:
- Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
- One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
- Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur C. Clarke
- The Black Hole by Alan Dean Foster
- The Man Outside by Wolfgang Borchert
- The Burglar in the Library by Lawrence Block
- One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey
I’m sure I’m not the only one with yearly reads. Anyone else?
