Sunday, January 6, 2008
Okay, so this is a couple of weeks behind, but I'm going to post anyway.
"What new books are you looking forward to most in 2008? Something new being published this year? Something you got as a gift for the holidays? Anything in particular that you’re planning to read in 2008 that you’re looking forward to? A classic, or maybe a best-seller from 2007 that you’re waiting to appear in paperback?"
There's two in particular that I have on my 2008 TBR Challenge list that I've wanted to read for several years and that I'm looking forward to finally getting to. The first is One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I read Love in the Time of Cholera last year and absolutely loved it, plus I've heard a wide variety of opinions on One Hundred Years and am anxious to see what I end up thinking.
Second, I've never read anything by Kurt Vonnegut and so am looking forward to finally reading Slaughterhouse-Five. This is one of those books that lots of people read in school, but somehow I didn't and I've always been curious about.
