Top Ten Tuesday: Planned Reading in the New Year


My daughter will be brushing up on her Plutarch this year.

The Broke and the Bookish, a blog down yonder, is asking what we’re excited about reading this year. A list like this doesn’t come easily to me; my TBR list is not organized by any sort of priority. My interests flit around quite a bit. I’ve been meaning to read Hilaire Belloc’s Characters of the Reformation for years, but there’s a great chance that if I walk into the library and see Apollo’s Angels on the display shelf, I’ll pick it up first.

So I’m cheating a little bit here. Below is a list not of the ten books I’m most excited about, but just ten books I would love to get off my TBR list. In no particular order.

  1. 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami
  2. Gulag by Anne Applebaum
  3. Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond
  4. A History of Philosophy, Vol. 1 by Frederick Copleston, SJ
  5. The Tin Drum by Günter Grass
  6. Invention of Hysteria by Georges Didi-Huberman
  7. Creed or Chaos by Dorothy Sayers
  8. The Power and the Glory by Graham Greene
  9. Witness to Hope by George Weigel
  10. The Bluegrass Conspiracy by Sally Denton

How about you, anything you’re excited about?
