Promise of reviews

152Beginning January 1st, I plan to begin reading through a list of classics. Some will be Modern Classics perhaps, while most will be what many consider to be classics. Many of these, I have never read, some I read so long ago I remember next to nothing, and a few will be favorites.

The first book I have planned is Anna Karenina by Tolstoy, and I hope to have it finished by January 31st.

Other books I have plans for reading include The Iliad and The Odyssey (I haven’t decided if I will read The Aenid), A Tale of Two Cities, Earth Abides, Moby Dick, Hunchback of Notre Dame, and The Killer Angels. There will be more, but those are the ones I’m most focused on reading.

I promise that once I finish the book, I will write reviews of them (something I have been extremely lacking in doing). In addition to that, I will also keep everyone up to date on the progress for my second book (the first is unpublished and needs a lot of work, so I’ve hired an editor to tell me what to do in order to make it work).

We hope to see you in the new year!
