I am behind on my resolution of classics (still). I might not make it. I am going to put in a damn good effort though!! This is of course on top of my annual “I am going to try NaNoWriMo again” attempt.
- The Bell Jar
- My Sister’s Keeper
- The Phantom Tollbooth
- The Great Gatsby
- Wuthering Heights
Attempted and failed:
- A Tale of Two Cities (for the upteenth time in my life!)
- Kidnapped (Robert Louis Stevenson) audiobook downloaded from the library.
- The Left Hand of Darkness (Ursula K. LeGuin) downloaded from the library
- Anna Karenina (Leo Tolstoy) been listening to the audiobook (from Librivox) in the car. I am on Chapter 133 out of 238 which is 56%, but it’s on hold since Kidnapped came through.
- Good Omens (Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman) downloaded the ebook from Google Play
- The God of Small Thing (Arundhati Roy) I am on hold with a copy from the library.
- Silence I already have a copy. I know I have a copy of this one! Still can’t find it – but I will!!!
So these are the ones I definitely will not get read:
- A Clockwork Orange (Anthony Burgess)
- The Grapes of Wrath (John Steinbeck)
- Their Eyes were watching God (Zora Neale Hurston)
Library doesn’t have any of these and I was surprised by the lack of Clockwork Orange and Grapes of Wrath. If I can’t find Silence I’ve already book marked Hurston on Google Books.
