The classics post gave me an idea!

Why don't we list the books we want to read this year, and as we read them, update our post by greying the book we've read out? We can sticky this thread and see how we did at the end of the year.

I'm not going to list EVERY book I want to read ever, because I know I'm not going to get oodles of time for reading this year between baby and jobseeking, but if I get them all read quicker than I think I'll add more.

Re-read The Celestine Prophecy (James Redfield)
Re-read The Tenth Insight (James Redfield)
Re-read The Secret of Shambhala (James Redfield)
Re-read The Wonder of Unicorns (Diana Cooper)
Re-read Fifty Shades of Grey (EL James)

The Twelfth Insight (James Redfield)
Little Women (Louisa May Alcott)
Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed (EL James)
Chicken Soup for the Couples' Soul (Jack Canfield et al)
Call The Midwife (Jennifer Worth)
Earth Wisdom (Glennie Kindred)

I may have some more to add when I've thought about it. Most of these are books I already have which are lying around waiting for me to read them...a few I'll need to get hold of.

The Celestine Prophesy

I may peek through others, I tend to just download or grab whatever catches my fancy at the moment.

I'm going to add the Harry Potter books to my list of need to read...I don't know if I'll get through all of them this year though.

I'm probably the only person you'll ever meet who got bored with Harry Potter and took it back to the library mostly unread.

I don't think it's evil or anything and I bought most of them in hardback for my kids, it just doesn't float my boat.

There's only enough of 2013 left for one book so I decided on Wild Child: Girlhoods In the Counterculture which sounds like it's going to make me appreciate my closet hippie but outwardly middle class suburban mom even more than I already do.
