2012 Literary Resolutions


Because I have just completed my 2011 goal - to have read 200 books off the 1001 to read in a lifetime by the end of the year - here's my newest draft of the 2012 literary resolutions. It does not include reading for my thesis, theory and philosophy books.

Overall: 50 more books off the 1001 list

  • The Screwtape Letters - C.S.Lewis
  • Journey To The End Of The Night - Celine
  • A Spy In The House of Love, Collages, Seduction of the Minotaur, The Four-Chambered Heart - Anais Nin
  • Nemesis, The Humbling, Everyman, Goodbye Columbus, Our Gang, Portnoy's Complaint, Sabbath's Theater, The Great American Novel - Philip Roth
  • Light In August, Sanctuary - William Faulkner
  • Black Dogs - Ian McEwan
  • House of Leaves - Mark Z Danielewski
  • Les miserables - Victor Hugo
  • V., Gravity's Rainbow - Thomas Pynchon
  • A la recherche du temps perdu - Marcel Proust (finally, and in French. I will hate myself for this)
  • Glamorama - Bret Easton Ellis
  • Arabian Nights (first 400 nights)
  • The Second Sex - Simone de Beauvoir
  • Being and Nothingness - Jean Paul Sartre
  • The Rum Diary, Screwjack - Hunter S Thompson

Authors: finish reading the works of Garcia Marquez, Isabel Allende and Haruki Murakami
