This is my current to-read list, and I really want to get through it as fast as possible. Also not on here, I want to finish Anna Karenina! I plan to add a lot more books to this list as I go as well.

Ash | 4 comments Currently, I'm a little short of 400 pages through Anna Karenina. Pevear and Volokhonsky are the translators of my edition, and they are wonderful!

Tolstoy is amazing with characterization. While I'm not particularly gripped by the plot, this book and translation are so well done I'd hate not to finish it. I really think this book doesn't get as much appreciation as it deserves.

This is my plan for January. Though I'd love to get my hands on 2001 and the Hogfather as soon as I can. After I read those I'm excited to compare them to their respective movies. I'm really trying to read more sci-fi (which is why my list is filled with sci-fi) because I've never really read any before this year.
