Oh my goodness me…
5 years ago, I ambitiously made a list of 57 books that I planned reading by January 2023. Worryingly enough, it is somehow already December 2022.
So here are some books from the list that I actually own, and haven’t read yet. This is a much abridged version of the full list – I’m also not including the books that I have read and have not reviewed (all three of them, but whatever).
We have 18 days and 18 books. Let’s see what we can do (it’s actually 19 – we have yet one more book to finish, not listed here..)
1.Homer, The Odyssey
3.The Prose Edda/ The Poetic Edda
4. Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince
5. Thomas Hobbes, The Leviathan
6. Henry Fielding, Tom Jones (re-read)
7. Tobias Smollett, The Adventures of Roderick Random.
8. Dorothy Wordsworth, The Grasmere Journal
9. Mikołaj Gogol, Martwe Dusze
10. Simone de Beauvoir, Mandaryni
11.Vladimir Nabokov, Ada
12.Henry James, The Bostonians
13.Joseph Heller, Catch -22
14.John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, Utilitarianism and Other Essays
15. Elizabeth Gaskell, The Life of Charlotte Brontë
