It's officially 2011! Another decade gone. Time moves way too fast!
I just finished reading How to Disappear Completely by David Bowick. I don't remember how I even heard of it, let alone why I have it on my Nook. It is about 150 pages long and apparently is out of print. This is Mr. Bowick's only published work as far as I know.
One of my goals this year, as I said in my previous entry, is to expand what I read. By that, I mean which authors and genres I choose from. Maybe a couple more nonfiction books and a few more novels written by 'classic' authors. Here is a little list of books I want to read this year that are out of the norm for me:
- Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King- For some reason I have always steered clear or short story collections.
- The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch- Just usually not my thing. Tiny inspirational books.
- The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival by John Vaillant- Nonfiction.
- Kim by Rudyard Kipling- A classic and also on my top 100 list.
Up next I am reading About a Boy by Nick Hornby. I have a bunch of novels picked out that I wanted to for sure read this year, and something by Hornby was one of them. So here goes. I have never read any of his stuff and hopefully it's good. I know movies based on his work get mixed reactions.
