a resolution I can keep — 7 Comments

  1. Ah, sounds good….not that I would necessarily choose the same authors. Elizabeth Goudge, Cynthia Harnett, John Verney, Madeleine L’Engle, Joan Aiken

  2. Sounds like a good plan! I need to re-read Stranger in a Strange Land, and had already planned on some LIttle Women time…Also, I’m gonna throw in some Anne McCaffery (for double credit with the Shelfari group) and…I’ll be watching your list for inspiration!

  3. Thanks for this seed,
    there are a few books I love coming back to frequently, do those count, too?

    Mostly German, and a few childrens book classics come to mind just now, thinking without looking into the shelves (in boxes right now, we renovated and restructured the living room).
    Michael Ende: Momo and the neverending story.
    Prinz Eisenherz, some of the SF anthologies I have bought at the “Ost Flohmarkt” at Platz der Astronauten in Jena when there still was the GDR.
    Some of the girls mysteries were on the readlist already so I know if I can hand them to my niece as incentive for her first reading once she has enough basics down.
    This will be a fun resolution and not painful at all.

  4. This is a great idea. There are a ton of books on my shelves that I could choose from. Madeleine L’Engle, Lewis Carroll, Dickens. Just don’t make me read any Nancy Drew. Or Cherry Ames, the army nurse. Remember those?

  5. What a great idea Holly! For me it will include books in Polish, being my mother tongue, and it just so happens that I bought a couple books from my childhood when I was in Poland last February. I am looking forward to this reading challenge. And no vampire romance! LOL

  6. I’ve done that, although, obviously, not the old-age part yet. My favorites for re-reading these days tend to be Rachel Remen (the best!), Jerome Groopman, Oliver Sacks…
