Thursday, January 05, 2006

What do they say about the road to hell being paved with good intentions? That's exactly what's happened with my reading list. There's a lot of things I've been cramming into my mind, lately. Mostly literature. So, in the interest of general accountability, I'm going to post my reading list for 2006, including my 2005 backlog, and update my progress along the way. Sort of like Nick Hornby's Polysyllabic Spree, only not as long; plus, I include graphic novels. You'll simply see "Books Obtained" and "Books Being Read," hopefully being crossed out as the year goes on.

Hm...should I include the craft (writing) books that I consult on a daily basis?

† These are books that I own, but haven't read since college, so they might as well be considered unread.
