Yearly Reading List

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?
