Well I have settled on the three classics I intend to read this year. First up is the ten pound edition of The Count of Monte Cristo. Okay, maybe it isn't ten pounds, but it is huge. I may be able to use it as a doorstop once I finish.
Next up is Middlemarch, and after that North & South by Elizabeth Gaskill. Both of these books number among my favorite mini-series.
Now all I have to do is find time between writing, work and guitar lessons and practice to actually find time to sit down and read them. Perhaps I will take a week's vacation and dedicate it to the sole purpose of putting a dent in my pile of TBR books that seems to keep growing by the millisecond.
I've recently added the second book in James McGee's series. How could I pass up a book set in Regency England with a dark hero and a tag line that says: You don't send a gentleman to catch vermin. You send Hawkwood.
That alone just makes me want to grab the book off the shelf, find a quiet corner and start reading. Sadly, however, I have several books in front of it, including the new Crusie/Mayer release that I am only half way through and have 2 days left before the library wants it back...
