In light of the epic
success failure of my Project 2013 (I completed 25% of my goals, none of them in order), you might have realized that I’m in the habit of biting off more than I can chew. This year is no exception. I was reading Stephen King’s On Writing when he casually mentioned that he reads 70 or 80 b00ks a year. I thought, If he can do 70 or 80, I can do 52, right? At least just this once? So I will be attempting to read a book a week during 2015.
I would love to have your suggestions as I make my list for the year. I actually have over a hundred books on my Goodreads to-read list, but I’d like to prioritize books that come highly recommended by people I know. So far I’ve got a lot of classics that I was supposed to read in high-school English class, but only skimmed.
What I’m looking for:
- Mostly fiction, but I will consider compelling non-fiction
- Books that changed the way you see the world
- Books by authors from a variety of backgrounds
- Any book that left you obnoxiously telling all your friends, “You have to read this!”
Thanks for your help!
