I'm planning to read Proust and Infinite Jest.

Have you got specific books lined up?

message 14: by Rowena (new)

Rowena I'm actually working on reading goals for 2013 as we speak :D I know, very nerdish!

message 15: by Hadrian (new)

Hadrian Proust is on my list, too. I don't have a concrete goal yet, but I have some vague ideas. More Dalkey, more NYRB, some of the big classics I've missed, more 20th century philosophy, more PoMos, even more nonfiction. Maybe the Moses biography by Robert Caro.

As much as I'd like to take the credit, it's not original. But I can't remember where I saw it.

message 20: by Nate D (new)

Nate D Just saw how utterly you've smashed your goal numbers. Well done.
