Oh, oh! Can I join this? I'm a grad student studying literature and am on this site all the time anyway...so it would be kind of silly for me to not at least try to join in the fun!

Presently, as I'm not in the focus part of my degree yet, just about everything depending on which classes I'm taking. However, I have a particular portion of my heart reserved for the "long" nineteenth century, as it was a period of a lot of growth and change! As such, my reading goals would consist of more George Eliot, more Charles Dickens, and because he's my favorite author (though not necessarily part of this era by any means...at all) more Franz Kafka. I do need to reread some of his stuff as it's been a very long while...but that's goal!

I focused my efforts around the Romantics to start, but I've found a recent delight in Modernist lit now. Metamorphosis is on my "to read" list. I'll get there, eventually.

Oh that's perfect!!! Thank You! The Metamorphosis is actually a pretty quick read, it only being about 80 pages. You can read it for free too in pdf form!

Also, thank you for the warm welcome!

I'm something of a print snob, and take ages to get around to a lot of things.


Thanks Trystan!

I was hoping to see this thread! <3

-_- Can my challenge be small? Because I never ever read as much as I would like to. I have a pile of books on my night stand that I haven't started and I just want to be sure to read all of them this semester. I don't plan in years, I plan in semesters hahaha. I get so swept up in school reading (and let's be honest, the internet is distracting) that I only read one or two leisure books each semester.

My pile of books, in the order I think I'm going to read them:

Heartbreak- Andrea Dworkin's memoir
The Princess Diarist- Carrie Fisher
Turtles All The Way Down- John Green
Asshole: A Theory- Aaron James
Flatland- Edwin A Abbot

If I manage to finish those, I want to read
Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
Neuromancer by William Gibson

-_- and maybe I can come up with a new list for the summer.

I read The Handmaid's Tale last semester, I devoured it. Read it in one night. A couple people recommended that trilogy is what I should read next if I want more Atwood, and I do, I do want more Atwood. Very very much so.

i forget when i first read the Handmaid's Tale, but that year i watched the movie with Natasha Richardson, Faye Dunaway, and Robert Duvall. then i reread it this year, and watched s1 of the miniseries (it's on Hulu, but that's not where i watched it... XD )

Handmaid's Tale is awesome!
