Reading 2007

I’ve inaugurated a new category here: Reading 2007. What I plan to do is blog my impressions, and a kind of review, of every single book that I read this year. Since I read somewhere between 70 and 90 books a year, there will be plenty to read about.

I’m starting out with Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal, which is one of the books I was given for Christmas. I started it this afternoon. A few samples already in the wings, in no particular order:

  • Special Topics in Calamity Physics, Marisha Pessl
  • Famous Last Words, Timothy Findley
  • The Children’s Hospital, Chris Adrian
  • Uncollected Stories, William Faulkner
  • The Autograph Man, Zadie Smith
  • The Emperor’s Children, Claire Messud
  • On Literature, Umberto Eco
  • Invitation to A Beheading, Vladimir Nabokov
  • Dr. No, Ian Fleming
